Mondi Safely Packages QIAGEN’s SARS-CoV-2 Test Cartridge

Mondi ramps up production to supply packaging for the new SARS-CoV-2 test cartridge by QIAGEN; a high-barrier triplex laminate which will provide protection for the test kits which require limited exposure to light and oxygen to remain effective.

Mondi, a global packaging and paper group, is committed to playing its part in the supply of essential products during the COVID-19 outbreak and has recently developed packaging for QIAGEN's SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus test kit.

QIAGEN is a global provider of molecular Sample to Insight solutions. The company recently launched a syndromic test cartridge kit for the QIAstat-Dx Analyser System that can identify the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus within an hour.

Designed for use in hospitals, clinics and laboratories, the company’s new QIAstat-Dx syndromic testing platform comes in the form of a compact, modular, table-top device into which multi-chamber cartridges containing test samples are inserted for analysis.

During times like these, flexibility in production is key to help support essential packaging needs in the medical industry. “Given that timely testing is a critical component of mitigating the spread of the pandemic, we stand ready to assist the medical community in any way we can. At Mondi Korneuburg, we adjusted our production planning in order to meet the increase in demand to support QIAGEN,” explains Eveline Wagner, Managing Director of Mondi Korneuburg.

Mondi has an ongoing relationship with QIAGEN and is providing packaging for the test cartridges using a customized design. The white, unprinted, multilayer pouches consist of a polyester/aluminium/polyethylene (PET/Alu/PE) construction to provide the necessary protection from light and moisture so that the test kits are not compromised before they are used.

“We worked closely with QIAGEN to understand how best to ensure test kits are packaged safely. We are now ready to scale up production of this product and meet the new demands,” says Emilio Vidri, Sales Director Europe, Mondi Consumer Flexibles.Mondi safely packages QIAGEN’s SARS-CoV-2 test cartridge.Mondi safely packages QIAGEN’s SARS-CoV-2 test cartridge.Mondi
