COVI-19 Test Kits

Scientists and engineers across the world are racing to develop test kits to identify those with COVID-19 to isolate and treat them, and help prevent others from contracting it. We are playing our part by providing the material solutions for this important tool.

As a materials and technology leader in the healthcare industry, SABIC is able to respond rapidly to the sudden and high surge in demand for engineering thermoplastics solutions that can address requirements for making COVID-19 testing kits.

The material required for these test kit cartridges must meet stringent medical requirements with properties including strong chemical resistance and impact resistance to protect the healthcare workers conducting the tests, and high clarity to allow visibility of the chemical reactions inside the test kit.

Recently in India, we delivered material to support domestic design and production of 50,000 test kits per day amid countrywide lockdown.
