Florida Anodize System & Technologies recently announced that it has received ISO 13485:2016 certification for its quality management system for medical device surface coating services.
The Sanford, Fla.–based company’s offerings include its FAST ColourLock aluminum anodic coating, which is able to maintain its color after repeated rounds of harsh sterilizations. Color is an important aspect of human factors design, which medical device companies have increasingly turned to in order to reduce use errors.
The ISO 13485:2016 certification came after a TÜV SÜD audit, according to Florida Anodize System & Technologies.
“FAST has over 20 years of experience in the industry, and the FAST ColourLock process for medical devices is proven to be a high quality and repeatable at scale. Additionally, with this latest ISO certification, our management team and ownership further commit to upholding the stringent quality standards that make us a reliable partner and the leader in the medical anodic coating field,” Neel Patel, company VP, said in a news release.
