Sono-Tek to Highlight MediCoat II Stent Coating System at MD&M West 2008

Jan 23, 2008

Milton, NY � January 17, 2008 � Sono-Tek Corporation, the world leader in the development and application of ultrasonic atomization technology and spraying and coating application systems, announces that it will highlight the MediCoat DES 1000 benchtop stent coating system and the MediCoat II standalone stent coating system in booth 1472 at the upcoming Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) West exhibition and conference scheduled to take place January 29-31, 2008 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA.

The MediCoat II is the next generation of Sono-Tek�s MediCoat stent coating system for coating arterial stents with polymers containing anti-restinosis drugs. The MediCoat II offers the same cutting-edge precision stent coating features that have made Sono-Tek the industry�s leader in producing high-quality stent coatings with expanded features and higher volume production capabilities. The system incorporates Sono-Tek�s MicroMist� ultrasonic nozzle, which produces a very thin, precise, straight spray pattern (with a diameter of 0.010 - 0.030"), and the company�s ultra-low flow AccuFlow� liquid delivery system.

Customers have the option of attaching a custom stent holding device onto the rotating mandrels or using Sono-Tek provided mandrels. The stents are loaded onto the mandrels and the cassette is inserted into the load chamber. The extend/retract shaft picks up each stent from the cassette and delivers it to the sealed process chamber for spraying. Stents are rotated at a fixed speed, controlled by the user. The stent moves horizontally side-to-side beneath the target area. The number of horizontal passes made is programmable.

A low-velocity exhaust maintains a negative air pressure to assure that any unwanted mist beyond the target area is removed. The system's unique design allows for safe and convenient access to the stent loading and unloading area. Large, unobstructed viewing windows and high-intensity internal LED lighting allow for easy observation.

With integrated controls for process parameters, liquid delivery and stent movement, the MediCoat II stent coating system provides a complete solution for developing a stent coating process and moderate volume production.
