Sono-Tek Corporation (OTC BB: SOTK) announces that beginning August 2014, its first class 10,000 rated clean room laboratory will be available for customers to conduct testing using Sono-Tek coating equipment. The facility is located in Guangzhou, China, and is operated by Sono-Tek’s China Distributor Unitak.
The laboratory will be focused primarily toward Sono-Tek’s medical device coating systems such as stent and balloon catheter coating equipment, as well as many nano-research applications. Sono-Tek President Steve Harshbarger stated, “The new China-based facility is our first clean room rated laboratory. The rapidly growing demand for high-quality medical devices in China has made this a logical place for expansion of our worldwide laboratory capabilities. Sono-Tek already has a very large customer base in China for stent coating systems. This new site will allow China-based customers easy access to test our next-generation stent and balloon coating machines, as well as our latest thin-film coating equipment.”
Sono-Tek presently has six worldwide testing labs located in Germany, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, China and the US, at its corporate headquarters in Milton, NY. Visit Sono-Tek’s Website at http://www.sono-tek.com/lab-facilities/ to learn more or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sono-Tek is the world leader in the development and application of liquid ultrasonic atomization technology into nozzle systems and spraying and coating application systems. Compared to conventional pressure spraying methods, the company’s ultrasonic nozzles do not clog, reduce liquid usage, waste, and environmental impact while achieving much more precise, uniform, thin film coatings. Sono-Tek is continually developing new applications for its unique technology, replacing wasteful practices in a world that is growing ever more environmentally sensitive.
