The test strip cap is designed with an integrated desiccant to help customers reduce overall costs. The clamshell seal increases consumer appeal and is ergonomically designed to encourage consumers to close the seal and extend protection. Different types and amounts of desiccant can be customized according to customer requirements. The cap material is LDPE, and low-density polyethylene (LDPE), also known as high-pressure polyethylene, is a plastic material. It is suitable for various molding processes of thermoplastic molding processing, and has good molding processability. The main uses of LDPE are medical devices, pharmaceutical and food packaging materials, and blow molded hollow molded products.

The body of desiccant packaging for test strips is mainly made of polypropylene (PP) material. Polypropylene is a non-toxic, odorless and tasteless milky white high crystalline polymer with a density of only 0.90--"0. 91g/cm3, which is the most common among all plastics. One of the light varieties. It is particularly stable to water, the water absorption in water is only 0.01%, and the molecular weight is about 811,000.
