HUMANMEDITEC (CEO Jung-Suek Ko •www.hmmdt.com) is an independent company which developed plasma sterilizer with its own technology.
In Korea, where most medical devices are imported, HUMANMEDITEC commenced to develop low temperature plasma sterilizer for medicine. And it succeeded in developing the plasma sterilizer for medicine. It was the second to Johnson & Johnson in the World. This product was selected as the one of World Class Products of Korea by Ministry of Commerce, Industry & Energy last year. And, it acquires CE certification (Class II) of SGS England for the first time in Korea in August this year.
This company established annexd technology institute to grow as a world-class plasma specialty company, and put all efforts into developing various products using plasma.
The plasma sterilizer (Model Name; HTMS) is a next generation sterilizer which maximizes plasma technology. Plasma, generated from the combination of hydrogen peroxide and high frequency, sterilize completely in clean method. It can actively respond to the environment regulation intensified recently.
In case of existing sterilizer, there is remaining toxin discharged through sterilizing process and it takes 10 hours to sterilize. However, HMTS discharges only oxygen and water which is totally not harmful to human body. Also It shortens the sterilizing hour to 1 hour.
The sterilizing solution is provided by storage tank method to exchange at one time a week. It saves 50% of sterilizing process cost. Additional pipe laying or installation is not needed. Just connecting electric power allows you to use the sterilizer. Easy moving and using enough space are other merits.
Especially HMTS sterilizes at 35 ℃ of vacuum status, so it doesn’t wear or change color. It is best for high-priced precision medical instruments such as Endoscope, and excellent in cost-saving effect to extend the life-span of medical instruments.
Additionally, HMTS eliminates humidity through dry run time before it enters sterilizing process. This increases sterilizing effect and enhances durability of the product to be used semi-permanently.
This product adopts one-touch screen type to be used easily in surgery room, central supply room, and clinical laboratory room. Just touching one button can make whole process automatically. Also through the window of LCD monitor, you can confirm the process by eyes. In case of trouble, it was designed by pushing clean switch to cancel the process.
Along this, relevant data is outputted during sterilizing process and saved in 32M memory card automatically. It makes you manage relevant data and equipment history easily. The capacity is various to make choice according to the purpose of sterilization and situation.
With these strong merits, the company held signing ceremony of domestic dealership in last May and contracted with 25 overseas medical instruments dealers including ‘Bellymed’ of Swiss, ‘Macosmepa’ of Italy HMTS to make a stepping stone for advancing into the world market.
CEO Jung-Suek Ko emphasized, “We will improve the monopoly structure in plasma sterilizer market with our own technology and brand.” And he said, “With Increasing export as well as import substitution, we will enhance the status of domestic medical instruments by providing high-quality medical service.
Also he said, “We will compete with worldwide powerful companies by next generation plasma sterilizer developed by domestic technology to make 95% of sales revenue by export.”
