Starplex was founded in 1973 in Toronto, Ontario, specializing in specimen collection containers and swab kits. The company created the Mediplast HDPE packer line for generic drugs and nutraceuticals in 2005, and Starplex expanded to Tennessee in 2008 to service the U.S. market with bottles and diagnostic products. Over 40-plus years we have become a trusted supplier of sample collection and transportation products for both the clinical and industrial markets for the Starplex branded products, and the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical markets for the Mediplast branded products. The Starplex brand was acquired by and adopted as Pretium’s Healthcare brand in 2019.
