Arobella Medical, LLC, today announced the achievement of ISO 13485:2003 certification for the design, development, manufacturing, test, and delivery of medical devices. This certification,developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), is the regulatory standard for the international medical industry and is closely related to ISO 9000 and EN 46000. Receiving the certification proves that the design, development and manufacturing functions at Arobella Medical meet the highest quality internationally recognized standards known for medical devices. Arobella Medical was assessed and registered by Intertek Testing Services NA Ltd.

Arobella Medical produces the Qoustic Wound Therapy System(TM), an FDA-cleared wound therapy device that applies low-frequency, cavitational ultrasound to gently remove dead and diseased tissue cells, kill harmful bacteria and biofilm, and leave healthy and pre-healing granulation tissue intact.
