NanoLogix, a biotechnology innovator in the rapid detection and identification of live-cell bacteria and microorganisms, announced today its latest innovation for the microbial diagnostic industry, the Flat Pack. The company has applied for a patent for this new packaging method to improve on conventional Petri packaging practices. The Flat Pack method more effectively protects the quality and integrity of NanoLogix BioNanoPore (BNP) and BioNanoFilter (BNF) Rapid Test Kits during both shipment and long-term storage, for all types of laboratory settings and locations.
The NanoLogix 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. By contrast, the NanoLogix 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. In addition, the flat surface of the Flat Pack, allows for easy storage and visibility of product quality.
“We are pleased with the innovation of our Flat Pack packaging,” said Bret Barnhizer, NanoLogix CEO. “The sterile environment of the vacuum seal demonstrates our commitment to high-quality rapid diagnostics, no matter what type of use or laboratory location. From the hospital and the 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.”
