Craneglas™ - our media solution for medical test kits

In these extraordinary times, both private individuals and industries are taking a number of measures to put a stop to the COVID-19 crisis. While many people around the world are still waiting for their vaccinations, viral infections can also be avoided by ongoing testing.

GESSNER does its part by providing an important basis for Medical Test Strips. Our Craneglas™ material is a very thin hydrophilic material with superior wicking and uniform surface quality making it is ideal for this application. It is not only used in the COVID “quick test”, but has also been used in HIV & pregnancy test for a number of years.
