Vacuum technology is used in the medical industry to manufacture Coronavirus test kits, which are made up of plastic precision parts.
A customer of Busch Vacuum Solutions needed additional capacity fast because of the higher demand for COVID-19 test kits. Busch was able to deliver two vacuum systems within just a few days.
The vacuum systems with MINK claw vacuum pumps are used for the degassing of the molten material when producing plastic precision parts for the test kits. Quality of the product output is critical because parts such as caps and test tubes have to be completely leak-tight.
These tests are used in hospitals and specially equipped test centers for testing the suspected cases of COVID-19. Usually the test result is available within 48 hours. With the help of these tests immediate measures can be taken to provide the best possible assistance and treatment to infected persons.
