OPTIMA BCT-200 assembly line specifically for blood collection tubes

Diagnostics play a vital role in containing pandemics. Currently, identifying the SARS-CoV-2 pathogens via antibodies in the blood is becoming increasingly important, for example to detect an infection with only mild symptoms. For this type of diagnosis, blood is often drawn from the patient with the help of blood collection tubes. Manufacturing these tubes requires several high precision assembly, dispensing and packaging steps. As a total solution, Optima Automation offers an efficient machine line for this purpose.
