US-based biotechnology company NanoLogix has introduced a new 'Petri Flat Pack', protective packaging for the microbial diagnostic industry.
The Flat Pack method protects the quality and integrity of NanoLogix BioNanoPore (BNP) and BioNanoFilter (BNF) rapid test kits during shipment and long-term storage.
NanoLogix said the Flat Pack is a practical solution to the common challenges of traditional packaging, which expose plates to cracking and contamination by wrapping stacks of dishes in thin-film plastic.
The Flat Pack method vacuum seals a single layer of BNP/BNF test kits between two sheets of thick plastic. The process of vacuum-packaging protects the kits from damage and creates a sterile environment to prevent contamination from the outside air.
The flat surface of the Flat Pack also allows for easy storage and direct visibility of product quality, the company said.
NanoLogix CEO Bret Barnhizer said that from hospital and manufacturing floor, to biodefense operations and developing regions the Flat Pack ensures our products arrive intact and are ready for use at a moment’s notice.
