plastic lab tubesOur best line of defense against the threat of disease is to conduct widespread testing and vaccinations. With the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic in full force, it has never been more urgent to understand the scale of the problem and create a fast solution safely.

Testing people for COVID-19 allows medical experts to gain accurate numbers about the spread of the disease and to learn which individuals are most likely to be affected. Following this information, measures can be put into place to combat the rise of infections.

Even without the presence of COVID-19, continuous testing for viruses and diseases is still essential. Flu is a huge worldwide killer. Around 60,000 US citizens die of the virus each year while hundreds of thousands are hospitalized. Therefore, it’s crucial that widespread testing takes place so that the appropriate vaccine can be administered when necessary to protect as many people as possible.

A vital component of the test kit is the plastic lab tubes in which the samples are contained. The type of material used for plastic lab tubes is very important as it needs to create a protective, safe environment.

At Petro Packaging Company Inc, our plastic lab tubes are made from FDA- approved PETG and CAP plastics. These are protective and robust as well as safe to use in medical applications and food contact.
