Significant Contribution by Polymer Based Disposables &
Consumables In Medical Devices For IVD / Diagnostics Sector


IVD / Diagnostics Sector In India: Opportunities Today & Tomorrow


The Indian Manufacturers of In-Vitro Diagnostics or IVD products has demonstrated phenomenon contribution by way of handling challenges faced during COVID – 19 pandemic. It included uninterrupted manufacturing, logistics, testing capacities & reporting all activities.


Demand for IVD products of all kinds - reagents, instruments , disposables / consumables and systems used to diagnose and monitor Covid – 19 , heart disease , diabetes and all critical and non-critical conditions is surging.


The Government interventions helped the IVD sector scale up production during the pandemic.


The Government of India through its flagship “Make In India” initiative relied heavily on the Indian Manufacturers to meet the rising demand. Government released the “Production Linked Incentives ( PLI ) Scheme with a total financial outlay of Rs 3420/- crores.


The Medical Device Parks and PLI schemes are expected to lead to a generation of additional employment of 33,7501 jobs over a period of 5 years according to “Invest India”.


Polymer Based Disposables & Consumables Play a Significant Role For The IVD Sector.


Today’s IVD sector rely heavily on Disposables / Consumables specifically polymer based. There are various categories of polymer based products used. It includes:


• Pipette Tips
• Sample and reaction Tubes, Cuvettes, micro centrifuge Tubes etc.
• Petri dishes, Cell Culture Dishes, Bottles, Plates etc.
• Deep-well Plates, PCR Plates, Microtiter Plates, Racks, Cassettes etc.


This is only a partial list of products.


These products require manufacturing to strict precision and efficiency standards. It is also important that for most of the applications, the products should be absolutely sterile offered in sterile packaging. Regulatory norms describe the product and manufacturing requirements.


These disposable products are elaborate and highly varied, as units can be thinwalled, transparent, and delicate or have complex shape. They require very strict tolerances because of functions such as dosing accuracy, snap-in catches, or seals are indispensable in diagnostics.


This means, during processes like Injection Moulding, feasibility must be combined with high output volume and low unit costs. This requires challenges to be faced in mould construction also.
