Clever packaging for corona rapid testing

23.02.2021 With the EasyTake Box, packaging specialist Faller Packaging has developed a safe, space-saving and easy-to-use solution for a PCR-based corona rapid test. The test device is used at the point of sample collection, for example in the emergency room of a hospital, and works with insertable test cartridges. These must not only be packed in an airtight container but also be ready to grab at all times.

The EasyTake Box is designed so that clinical staff can effortlessly remove the test cartridges with one hand: either from a chute or from the top of the ready-to-use tray.

On behalf of the Freiburg, Germany-based medical technology company Spindiag GmbH, which launched a PCR-based Corona rapid test on the market in November 2020, the development team from Faller Packaging in Waldkirch, Germany, realised a clever transport and presentation packaging for the disposable cartridges: the so-called EasyTake Box.

Removable with one hand

The folding box is designed so that the clinic staff can easily remove the test cartridges with one hand: either from a chute or from the top of the ready-to-use tray. In addition, the EasyTake Box has an integrated fill level indicator and a built-in side compartment for the accompanying instructions for use. Coloured labels allow the same packaging to be used for cartridges of different tests. Users can always find their way around quickly thanks to the colour coding.

With its well thought-out and flexible design, the EasyTake Box from Faller Packaging helps to ensure a smooth and time-saving process in everyday hospital and laboratory work. This makes it an important component of Corona PCR rapid tests that can be carried out anywhere. In addition, the folding box is made of pure mono cardboard material and is therefore 100 percent recyclable.

Safe, simple and efficient

"Our demand to develop a safe, simple and efficient test system has been perfectly implemented by Faller Packaging in the development of the EasyTake Box," explains Dr Mark Keller, chief product officer and co-founder of Spindiag GmbH. "When setting the task, we always had the requirements of the often hectic daily routine in the clinic in mind: the coloured labels allow the different tests to be reliably distinguished; the handy, intelligently designed EasyTake Box is also very easy to integrate into clinical procedures and can be used efficiently - always within easy reach, even in limited spaces."
