Encapson opens new coating line
- In June 2019, a second state-of-the-art production unit, Sono-Line 02, for applying our M-series coating systems became operational. The semi-automated production line has multiple coating units equipped with high-performance laser transmitters for continuous measurement of coating levels. The coating depth is automatically adjusted when the coating level decreases. This direct feedback loop ensures Encapson meeting the tight product specifications of its MedTech customers
- The Sono-Line 02 has been specifically developed to ramp up the production of a Sono-Coat™ Microwave Ablation probe. The production takes place in a controlled production environment and using an ISO 13485:2016 certified QMS system
Note for the Press
Encapson has developed Sono-Coat™; an innovative echogenic coating system to improve the ultrasound visibility of medical devices in the body. The Sono-Coat™ technology is based on a coating matrix containing acoustically reflective microspheres. The microspheres scatter the ultrasound waves in all directions. The enhanced reflection leads to crystal clear and sharp images on the ultrasound screen. The Sono-Coat™ technology platform consists of two coating systems: the M-series for needles and the P-Series for catheters.
Sono-Coat™ enables precise targeting of objects in deeper tissue structures such as liver and kidney biopsies, facilitates vascular access, setting peripheral nerve block and tip confirmation of CVC, PICC, Drainage and Regional Anaesthesia catheters. The unmatched ultrasound visibility of Sono-Coat™ supports the physician in performing accurate, safe and error-free ultrasound-guided procedures.
