Gold in packaging innovation for IVD breakthrough ACU-Drop® II

The 29th edition of packaging innovation competition De Gouden Noot was won by ACU-Drop® II, a unique, patented packaging form that revolutionises quality control in the In Vitro Diagnose (IVD) market. The innovative, dual chambered device keeps various fractions separated, preventing reactions between components of the desired matrix. When ready, the user simply pushes a button to allow the fractions to combine. Then mix with the integrated “static stirrer” and the sample is ready to use, either from the built-in dropper bottle or by attaching a syringe. ACU-Drop® II will open doors in the quality control arena with its ease of use, elimination of the need for pipetting and by solving matrix interactions - all in a single container.
