MicroVention, Costa Rica

Delivering a class 100,000 cleanroom system for a medical device company

Puracore® supplied and delivered a high specification clean room system to MicroVention, an international medical devices company, specialising in neuroendovascular therapies.

Collaborating with a leading US based clean room installer

Puracore® worked alongside Cleanrooms West, a leading cleanroom installation company based in California, USA.

MicroVention required a large ISO 8 (Class 100,000) Cleanroom for their new manufacturing facility just outside San Jose, Costa Rica.

Supplying a bespoke clean room to Costa Rica

Puracore® manufactured and supplied around 2,000m² of FM approved Puracore® 50mm aluminium honeycomb paneling with a white foodsafe PVC laminate, complete with channel base and tight fit aluminium tongues joints for silicone sealing. 29 vision panels were manufactured to bespoke sizes and provided a flush fit to the rest of the cleanroom.

Where required Puracore® designed and produced bespoke cleanroom panels with apertures to fit air return grills and pre-manufactured air return ducts. As well as packaging and shipping all cleanroom components to the site in Costa Rica, Puracore® provided full support and training to the installation team.

Success of the clean room project

The new plant represents MicroVention’s first production facility outside of the USA and the first Neurovascular manufacturing plant in Costa Rica. The development has supported the growth and expansion of MicroVention and Terumo brand.
