Just 2 companies in the world are manufacturing low temperature plasma sterilizer by using most advanced high technology, plasma.
Since commenced the development of low temperature plasma sterilizer in 1998, Human Meditek succeeded in launching its own brand, HMTS to the world market in 2003.
Furthermore, in 2005, Human Meditek proudly showed off its advanced technology by means of launching new generation plasma sterilizer, HMTS-SES showing 10 times higher sterility with just 15-minute sterilization cycle time.
This advanced sterilizer makes it possible for the hospitals to use the sterilizer at the moment of most appropriate time by enhancing its turnover.
Ko, Jung-Suck, CEO of Human Meidtek, stressed that “although the market of medical equipment necessarily needs state-of-the-art technology which makes us so hard to penetrate into this market, once our plasma sterilizer is accepted by the market with a high quality, we can earn a much value from this specific field of business.
In addition, we will be contributing to Korean economy as well by means of exporting USD10 mil worth of our plasma sterilizer, which will replace an import of USD1.5 mil,
