Dynatek’s Drug-Eluting and Coated Stent Tester to be Demonstrated Throughout US and Europe

October 2005

SPRINGFIELD, MO – 10/07/05 – Dynatek dalta Scientific Instruments will be taking their new drug-eluting and coating durability tester (CDT) on the road for dynamic demonstrations. Following the July 2005 announcement of the creation of this CDT, Dynatek has received many requests for demonstrations. Dynatek’s first presentations will be October 24-27, 2005, at the offices of MedTech Development in Los Altos, California. For an appointment to see the CDT in action and speak with Dynatek’s team who created the drug-eluting and coating durability tester, contact Technical Sales at 417.357.6155, www.dynateklabs.com.

Dynatek’s CDT adds the benefit of dynamic, real-time evaluation of device coating to the proven accelerated durability testing of the Small Vascular Prosthesis Tester (SVP) and Large Vascular Prosthesis Tester (LVP). The CDT measures both size and number of particles as shedding occurs, without removal of the testing solution. This instantaneous particle counting allows the user to know precisely when stent shedding occurs.

Applications for the CDT include device and coating durability testing for large vascular stents, small vascular stents, bifurcated stents, and other coated devices. Dynatek’s Coating Durability Tester includes laser particle counter, controller, and data acquisition software that is 21 CFR part 11 compliant.

With over 20 year’s experience, Dynatek leads the world in cardiac and vascular device testing. Dynatek’s bench-top testing has consistently demonstrated the ability to predict clinical failures prior to clinical evaluation. This adds confidence to the safety and effectiveness of the tested product, and may prevent costly clinical failures.
