Sharklet Technologies Inc., an Aurora-based medical-technology company, said today it has been acquired by Peaceful Union, a medical device firm based in Hangzhou, China.
Sharklet makes a textured product -- also called Sharklet -- that's designed to inhibit bacterial growth on surfaces used in health care, such as catheters and wound dressings.
Terms of the deal were not announced.
"The acquisition of the company will enable Sharklet Technologies to accelerate the development of Sharklet for medical devices where chemical-free bacterial inhibition is desired as well as high-touch surfaces prone to bacterial contamination," it said in today's announcement. "The company also will accelerate development of a newly enhanced wound dressing technology to encourage healing."
