Abingdon Health is pleased to announce it is now offering customers the option of using non-plastic lateral flow test cassettes. Cassettes for Abingdon Healths own products will also move to using a plant-based material in due course and Abingdon Healths rapid test manufacturing customers will also have the option to use the same material for their assays.
Moving to a new non-plastic option fits with Abingdon Healths commitment to reducing its impact on the environment by manufacturing lateral flow tests with as much renewable, biodegradable and recyclable materials as possible.
Using a plant-based lateral flow cassette material will mean that any test that requires incineration will now emit 50% less CO2 compared with the plastic alternatives. The new cassette material, which is compostable to EN 13432, also uses 85% renewable material meaning there is less reliance on fossil fuels used during the manufacturing-process.
