“There is an expansion of global and regional immunization programs addressing viruses like Covid-19 as well as the seasonal flu and other pediatric vaccine requirements. Simultaneously, mounting safety concerns around the risk of needle stick injuries among healthcare providers are driving higher safety standards and as a result, greater interest in no-pierce, rigid plastic caps over plain rubber shields. Especially in applications that require nurses and doctors to perform many vaccinations in a short amount of time, an RNS offers more comfortable syringe handling and reduces the risk of needle sticks,” said, Carina van Eester, Global Product leader.
In countries throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Asia where infusion therapies continue to be packaged in rigid plastic containers, infusion discs are highly necessary components for treatments of chronic illnesses, infectious diseases, dehydration, post-surgery treatments, and the administration of antibiotics. Available in a wide range of sizes and configurations, Datwyler’s infusion discs are manufactured at the company’s Advanced production level and in dimensions that align with ISO 15759 as well as in other customized designs out of its newly acquired facility in Shandong, China—Yantai Xinhui Packing. The range of discs offers excellent functional properties compared to market alternatives including exceptional penetration force, resistance to fragmentation, and resealability. The discs rubber formulation also complies with international compendial requirements. The addition of infusion discs completes Datwyler’s product portfolio for IV system components, which also includes injection sites, sleeve stoppers, and vascular seals for peripheral venous catheters.

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.
