PROGENY Plasma Treatment System

The PROGENY™ system easily accommodates extended catheters and larger products. With a two-meter chamber depth, the system ensures optimum alignment of extended catheters to achieve uniform plasma treatment and removal of impurities.

Plasma surface treatment cleans and activates the catheter surface to prepare for the application of a lubricious coating and to facilitate adhesive bonding of the balloon to the catheter. Plasma removes contamination, impurities, and organics at the nanometer level – improving surface wettability, hydrophilicity, and bonding capabilities to address issues such as poor wetting, poor coating uniformity, voids, and poor adhesion. In addition to catheters, the PROGENY system can accommodate products with part surfaces up to 2 meters long and 50 centimeters in size. 

The PROGENY system provides plasma treatment at 13.56 MHz and accommodates common gases, such as oxygen, nitrogen, and argon, with high process repeatability and uniformity. An EPC controller with SECS/GEM interface facilitates remote control of the equipment and real-time data logging. The system is controlled by an intuitive touch screen GUI with a one-button start feature. Also included are configurable plasma cells with high flux electrodes and direct gas injection for uniform gas flow.

Easy-access front and back doors, advanced horizontal electrode design, and the integrated rack make it easy to load large products. The integrated rack allows product trays to slide in smoothly maintaining the correct spacing and positioning of product and ensuring uniform plasma treatment.

Additional features include an integrated gas distribution system for uniform gas flow, water-cooled high flux electrodes, a removable product tray, a controlled vacuum exhaust, and an easily removed electrode assembly for chamber maintenance and ease of serviceability. Temperature-controlled electrodes ensure consistent process repeatability.
