A medical venture company, Human Meditek has launched HMTS-SES plasma sterilizer on Nov. 27. HMTS-SES has advantages in that unlike steam or EtO gas sterilizers, it can sterilize heat-sensitive medical devices by using low temperature plasma in a vacuum. "HMTS-SES's whole cycle time takes 15 minutes only, which is twice faster than its 80 liter model and 28 times faster than other existing sterilizers in the market," boasted a Human Meditek official. It is also equipped with voice telling function and LCD monitor showing the sterilization process information.
President Ko said that he plans to export most of its products overseas, expecting 10 million$ in exporting and replacing domestic consumption needs of 1.5 million$ annually.
