Learn how a diagnostics device company extended the shelf-life for its groundbreaking COVID-19 test kit
Shelf Life Saves Lives
A prominent diagnostics device company received emergency use authorization (EUA) for its novel COVID-19 rapid test device, which was faster, less expensive, and more accurate than most rapid tests.
Upon initial launch, the biaxially oriented polypropylene film (BOPP) material used on the test cartridge met some – but not all – of the testing device’s needs. The need for long-term moisture protection and extended shelf life was urgent.
TekniPlex offered a “glass-clear” film that met critical criteria so global supply demands could be met during the ongoing pandemic.
- A dramatically longer shelf life was achieved, allowing for deployment of test kits around the world during an unprecedented and ongoing pandemic.
- Allowed for an automated cleanroom production process.
- Accomplished the goal of keeping the test kit film glass-clear, solving both light transmission clarity and moisture protection issues.
