Silgan Unicep offers innovative packaging options for your Point-of-Care diagnostic kit consumables including our newest packaging solution- HLX. HLX was created for diagnostics as a transfer tube alternative based on blow-fill-seal technology featuring a wide opening to support sample swabs or test insertion. The unit is available in a threaded design, so it can easily pair with a dropper top for precise dispensing. 

Additionally, Traditional Blow-Fill-Seal and our Twist-Tip™ units are great solutions for liquid test components requiring the precise dispense of a liquid consumable onto a sample or test strip. The ampoules present a clean, professional look while offering the end-user an easy-to-use design featuring twist-off-tips and are available in a range of sizes starting at 500 microliters, or 0.5 mL, and support low fill volumes with tight fill tolerances.
