In-House Technical Capabilities
Tekra provides full converting and coating capabilities within our ISO 9001:2000 certified manufacturing facility. Controlled environments, including a Class 10,000 clean room in our coating operation, ensure product quality and integrity. Housed within the manufacturing facility are laboratories staffed with full-time chemists, quality engineers, and research and development technicians dedicated to helping customers analyze designs, dissect substrate capabilities and create substrate solutions.
Tekra is a processor and supplier of film products to the medical diagnostic marketplace. As Tekra is not a medical device manufacturer, we are not subject to direct regulations by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. However, as a key component supplier to the medical device manufacturers where it is applicable, Tekra follows FDA suggested cGMP guidelines and works in collaboration with our medical customers to identify characteristics of the film products and any Tekra operations that are critical to the successful operation of the finished medical device. Tekra's exclusive supplier of polyester films, Dupont Teijin Films Americas, employs similar procedures when supporting a medical diagnostic application. While we cannot relieve our medical customers from their ultimate responsibility for determining a products fitness for use, we have extensive experience in product selection, design specifications, and supply chain management that will insure a successful implementation and outcome for any new diagnostic applications.
