On the birthday of the city Nevinnomyssk (Stavropol Territory) was put into operation the plant JSC "Erbitek." The plant will produce single crystals of sapphire, garnet and erbium medical equipment. We should also note that the JSC "Erbitek" provide jobs for 200 residents Nevinnomysska.
One of the co-investors JSC "Erbitek" is "RUSNANO", which implements the state policy on the development of nanotechnology industry through co-investment in nanotechnology projects with substantial economic potential or social benefit.
The main activity of JSC "Erbitek" is the production of crystals of yttrium-aluminum, black garnet doped with erbium. Erbium laser crystal garnet — a key element of unique laser emitters, which is created on the basis of a whole line of medical equipment. The use of this type of laser to realize the innovative technology of contactless finger puncture biological tissue laser for blood sampling.
Production of JSC "Erbitek" is a meter with a laser perforator, which allows the patient alone at home safely analyze and control the level of sugar in the blood. The use of new technology will allow for non-contact laser puncture tissue finger perforator for microdroplets of capillary blood, and implement rapid analysis. This would eliminate the use of traditional metal needles eliminate pain arising in their application, to ensure absolute sterility, improve comfort and reduce the cost of the procedure.
Another product of the project will be a laser perforator Professional, designed primarily for use in medical facilities for non-finger prick for blood for analysis, as well as individual laser perforator, intended for individual use by patients
