The patent is entitled �Process for Coating Three Dimensional Substrates with Thin Organic Films and Products� and relates to equipment and processes for the creation of thin organic films on complicated substrates using Sono-Tek�s ultrasonic nozzle technology in combination with a vacuum system. Examples of potential and actual applications of this technology include the coating of implantable medical devices such as drug-coated cardiac stents, diabetes monitors, and other complicated geometries. The advantage of the MediSonic unit is that it can coat many small devices simultaneously by the interaction of the ultrasonically created vapor cloud in the vacuum chamber.
