stat vial


The Challenge

After years on the market, the STAT® Vial had to be reinvented. In 2004 the FDA changed its regulations on how medical vials could be labeled. Customers needed a technical solution because STAT® Vials are essential to respiratory patients. The vials had to remain sterile, able to dose out a single unit of medication, and be clearly labeled.

The Approach

Under the leadership of Kent Byron, Acadiana Plastics Molding took aim at the challenge. Kent worked around the clock with teams in the medical, engineering and distribution fields. He built APM’s patented Laser Printing Technology from the ground up, solving a problem that would ensure patients would get their FDA compliant STAT® Vials.

The Results

Now, STAT® Vial is the leader in sterile unit dose heat seal packaging for the respiratory market. APM is the original and ONLY company capable of producing the patented STAT® Vial. APM’s revolutionary printing solution is FDA and USP <797> compliant, and the inventive process allows double sided printing on vials so manufacturers of the medication can clearly label the dose.
