With volatile supply chains, local production is regaining importance. This is also reflected in the cooperation between the automation specialist MA micro automation and Sanner, a leading supplier of primary packaging as well as medtech and diagnostics applications. With fully automated production, rapid tests and other medical technology products can be manufactured in Germany just as cost-effectively as elsewhere - as the new CERES POC system at Sanner clearly shows.
Faster workplace design and higher manufacturing competence thanks to virtual reality: The Sanner Group, a leading global supplier of high-quality intelligent packaging solutions and components for the medtech, diagnostics and pharmaceutical industries, is using VR-optimized assembly processes for the production of complex customer projects. Thanks to VR goggles, Sanner is able to virtually examine its own assembly production processes in advance and can thus optimize assembly in a resource-saving and efficient manner.
Efficiency is the top priority when developing new products - especially in the pharmaceutical and medical technology sectors. As a Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO), Sanner uses rapid prototyping – in this specific case the Engineering experts from Sanner used 3-D-printed tool inserts to manufacture samples as close to reality as possible. This helps to optimize the manufacturing process and go from idea to series production in the shortest possible time.
Prefilled syringes have been used primarily in self-medication for years. To facilitate this use, the Klosterfrau Healthcare Group and its subsidiary Farco-Pharma have joined forces with the Sanner Group to develop a new polypropylene (PP)-based syringe system. It not only improves adherence, but also contributes to the sustainability aspect.
The use of rapid tests has grown enormously in recent years, not least due to the corona pandemic. The one-time tests have evolved in terms of lateral flow and result accuracy. However, the test kits, especially the housing shape, have remained pretty much the same. This gave rise to the idea of a platform solution for diagnostic tests that uses as little material as possible and can be implemented for different types of evidence. Miss Dr. Tina Hassberg initiated a new and more sustainable development by founding Solios Diagnostics and with the patent for RapidoDX, an all-in-one plattform for lateral flow immuno assays.
