Even where disposable plastic is inevitable in one’s laboratory, one can reduce the amount of waste produced. Integra have developed a range of greener, eco-friendly liquid handling packaging options that will reduce the amount of pipette racks, reagent reservoirs and tips that land up in the bin pile. In addition, Integra have used 60% less plastic in the manufacturing process of their new ECO Racks.
New Eco Rack Saves Plastic
The new Integra ECO Racks significantly reduce the amount of plastic used in the laboratory. They are easily stackable and can be compressed to reduce recycling bin space requirements. This innovative rack design can be used with all single and multichannel INTEGRA handheld pipettes. ECO Racks also contain 60 % less plastic than alternative racks.
- The innovative rack design can be used with all single and multichannel INTEGRA handheld pipettes.
- For the sturdiest and most convenient GripTip pipetting experience, ECO Racks can be paired with Integra’s one-of-a-kind, reusable PopTop Base.
- For an even greener option, the PopTop Base is compatible with Integra’s GREEN CHOICE refill inserts.
- This is also available as LOW RETENTION GripTips for improved results when pipetting certain liquids.
No more hammering on tips!
Integra has designed their pipettes and GripTips in combination, resulting in a perfectly matched pipetting system. The system excels in terms of ergonomics by making it easier and faster to insert the tips, which will not fall off. This results in no wastage of pipette tips that might fall off during pipetting.
