Milton, New York-based Sono-Tek has sold its first MediSonic coating system to an undisclosed major manufacturer of stents and pharmaceuticals. The system uses an ultrasonic nozzle designed specifically for the application. The technology allows for the application of thin and precisely-controlled films on intricate 3D surfaces, such as stents. Sono-Tek claims its system avoids surface abnormalities present with other coating technologies. In addition, the company says that the coating of multiple stents with thin layers results in more economic use of expensive anti-restenosis drugs.
