The Journey to Success

Our process for working with engineers and product developers has been designed to yield efficient and effective solutions.

1. UNDERSTANDING YOUR NEEDS

We begin by asking you key questions and listening to your needs and challenges. Then we will work with you to build a list of requirements and specifications based on your unique project – and move to the testing phase.

2. VERIFICATION TESTING

After review of your device, we look at various conditions and manufacturing parameters to match the best coating for your project. Based on this verification testing, the Biocoat team will work directly with you to fine-tune and maximize the results to meet your exact requirements.

3. COATINGS DEVELOPMENT

Collaboration is vital when designing and implementing a coating process. We are with you every step of the way – from recommendations for equipment and design of process parameters to support your product’s development. During this stage we work with you to determine if it is best to coat the materials at your facility or at our in-house Coating Services Unit.

4. PROCESS VALIDATION

Once a manufacturing process is designed and built, it must be validated in order to meet Good Manufacturing Process (GMP) standards. Biocoat has access to experts in the area of Process Validation and can help you towards commercialization of a coated product.

5a. COATING SERVICES OR

5b. COATING PRODUCTION / TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER

For our partners who are setting up their production lines so that they can coat their devices at their facility, Biocoat is there to support your coating process for the length of your device’s lifetime. We support our partners with easy ordering of reagents and ongoing support for any manufacturing concerns.

6. ONGOING SUPPORT

Simply setting up a coating process and running it does not guarantee that unforeseen human or environmental factors will not arise. When anomalies happen in the manufacturing process, you can turn to Biocoat’s staff of proven experts to help you maximize your production and you can count on us to provide you with best-in-class service.
