Excelitas Technologies, a global provider of innovative, customized optoelectronics to OEMs seeking high-performance technology solutions, announced today that its LED-based manufacturing facility in Wheeling, Ill. has achieved ISO 13485:2003 certification. ISO 13485:2003 certification is an internationally recognized quality standard designed to ensure that medical device manufacturers and critical component suppliers to medical device manufacturers have the required quality management systems in place to safely design, manufacture and distribute medical devices as well as the critical components incorporated into these devices.
