Sterilin secures laboratory supplies chain in case of disruption from pandemic flu

19 September 2009

British manufacturer Sterilin Ltd has geared up to ensure ‘pandemic-proof’ production and distribution of essential laboratory testing supplies from its South Wales facility.

The company manufactures single-use plastics, such as sample collection and transport containers, pipettes, petri dishes and multiwell plates, which play a daily role in clinical and industrial diagnostic testing laboratories. Routine biochemistry, immunology, haematology, microbiology and food pathogen analyses continue to increase, irrespective of the wider-publicised ‘swine flu fever’.

Sterilin has put in place its own action plan to protect the laboratory plastics supply chain, drawing on 40 years of experience in the microbiology market. Should the pandemic strike as worst case scenarios predict, Sterilin can provide hospital laboratories and food manufacturers with essential disposable testing products, even with a reduced workforce.

With the most stringent manufacturing standards in the industry, the Sterilin-branded portfolio of single use plastics comprises over 800 products. The BS EN ISO 9001:2000 accredited purpose built facility in South Wales is prepared for any eventuality in terms of manufacturing demand, with comprehensive quality assurance procedures.
