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.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
