An award was given for a urine and blood test kit from LockCon based in Kirchberg in the canton of St.Gallen that was manufactured by GPI Swiss AG. According to a press release from GPI Swiss, this packaging was specially developed for blood and urine samples in sports, which is why it has been designed to meet the highest safety requirements.
