The manufacturing process is a precise procedure that ensures that the NeoCarts are sterile and ready for implantation. The process takes place in what is called the clean room. In the clean room, several steps and precautions are followed to ensure cleanliness and prevent any risk of contamination. Every surface is sprayed nightly to kill bacteria, and HEPA air filters work constantly to remove 99.99% of particles .5 microns or larger, adhering to regulations for ISO Class 7 clean rooms. Anyone entering must gown up head to toe and at first must pass certification to show that the gowning process is carried out correctly, including clean up crew who come in after hours.
