Airnov healthcare expo at China association of clinical laboratory practice expo

Airnov Healthcare Packaging, a global leader in controlled atmosphere packaging, showcased its ground-breaking HAT IN vial product and new packets range at the China association of clinical laboratory practice (CACLP) expo, the largest In-vitro diagnostic (IVD) and clinical laboratory trade exhibition in China. The expo was held on 28-30 March 2021 at the Chongqing International Expo Centre.

HAT IN is the latest innovation to be incorporated into a product range produced by Airnov healthcare. The vial utilizes and integrates the company’s advanced desiccant polymer (ADP) technology to provide a high moisture barrier and excellent moisture absorption. It is designed to be easily integrated into automated filling lines for fast, reliable production.

Among the products exhibited at the CALCP Expo by Airnov was its range of automatable drop-in desiccant packets. These are small sachets filled with various sorbent materials designed to protect healthcare products from degradation caused by moisture.

Examples include reagents, rapid tests, urinalysis strips, ELISA kits, and various in vitro and clinical diagnostic devices.

Fully compliant with US FDA and EU regulations, the range comprises four trust raw materials:

SILICA GEL (a silica gel-based packet for moisture absorption)
MOLSIEVE (a molecular sieve for moisture absorption)
CARBON (activated carbon for odor control)
The 2-in-1 Pak brand (Desiccant and activated carbon for moisture and odor control)

Visitors to CALCP explored a variety of sizes and ordering options. Standard packet sizes range from ¼-gram to 10 grams and can be produced to order if required. Continu-strip packet batches are available, featuring a hole in each seal to optimize cutting accuracy and enable automatic insertion on packaging lines.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
