The establishment of the service facility will enable medical organizations to achieve cost-effectiveness and save time.
FREMONT, CA: Biocoat, a specialty manufacturer of hydrophilic biomaterial coating for medical devices, recently launched an ISO-certified, full-service on-site facility for the application of HYDAK coatings for the unique medical devices of their customers. Before the establishment of the new facility, Biocoat offered biocoating services at the respective facilities of its customers or recommended a third-party vendor if necessary. The new facility will be equipped with specialized personnel trained to handle the coating process efficiently. It will enable medical device companies to save time, as well as money.
Jim Moran, President and CEO of Biocoat, said, "The launch of our new coating facility helps in extending Biocoat's vision of becoming a complete, turnkey coating service solution. The coating service unit allows us to expertly apply our unique hydrophilic coatings in a controlled environment, which enables us to consistently produce high-quality results in an efficient and repeatable manner while offering unmatched customer service and best-in-market turn-around times."
Biocoat specializes in the development and licensing of biomaterial coatings for medical devices. Its services are custom engineered to meet specific clinical parameters. It supplies lubricous hydrophilic coatings for medical devices to original equipment manufacturers and contract manufacturers. Biocoat also offers coating services to aspiring medical device companies requiring assistance with manufacturing.
The design and management of the new unit is led by Thomas Brugnoli, Senior Director of Operations at Biocoat. "The coating services unit allows us to fully support our customers by giving them options during their development process," said Brugnoli. "For customers who are launching a new product, our facility can support commercial production volumes, and for existing clients, our coatings unit acts as a backup or overflow service for their existing coating process. We are proud to be able to accurately and efficiently process our customers' specialty devices in preparation for use by patients located around the world."
