Complete solution for manufacturing blood collection tubes

R+E Automation Technology GmbH will be appearing at no less than three trade fairs at the start of 2019. The company will exhibit at Interplastica in Moscow, Arab Health in Dubai, and Pharmapack in Paris. One of its main focuses will be the new system for manufacturing and packaging blood collection tubes – the BCT-200. R+E is located in Fellbach, near Stuttgart, and is one of the newest members of the Schwäbisch Hallbased Optima Group. At the trade fairs, R+E will establish itself as a solution provider for manufacturing blood collection tubes with the required process expertise.


“Our new complete solution BCT-200 can be used to manufacture and package both vacuum and non-vacuum blood collection tubes,” says Sales Director Eugen Wanner. The machine can therefore dispense all common additives, such as gel, EDTA.K2, EDTA.K3, lithium herapin, trisodium citrate, and many more. The system stands out with its modular design and can be extended with further stations if necessary. It covers every required process step all the way to packaging, in polystyrene trays, for example.


The company’s portfolio also includes assembly machines for medical products such as pen and auto-injectors, IV sets, syringes, and cannulas. R+E’s range of machine solutions for pen and auto- injectors includes both semi-automatic machines with manual loading and fully automatic machines. The company’s portfolio is topped off by its own feed systems. In partnership with Optima Pharma, R+E Automation is able to provide complete systems that incorporate both companies’ technology and expertise.


R+E Automation is represented in Russia by a distribution partner. Waldemar Stil from Industrie-Kontor GmbH (based in Malsch) supports the company and will be present at Interplastica.
