INTEGRA GripTip choices are now available in environmentally friendly ECO Racks.
FREMONT, CA: INTEGRA offers 300 and 1250 μl WIDE BORE 300 μl LONG and 1250 μl SHORTGripTips in both 96 and 384 tip configurations in its renowned ECO Racks. These racks contain 60 percent less plastic-substantially less plastic is used in the lab-and save space by stacking for storage and compressing for recycling. Additionally, the ECO Racks can be used in conjunction with the company's one-of-a-kind, reusable Pop-top Base to provide the most convenient pipetting experience possible.
INTEGRA recognizes that not every application requires a single tip, which is why the firm offers a choice of solutions in addition to its conventional GripTips to meet the requirements of unique laboratory workflows. For example, the 300 l LONG GripTips enable users to pipette 100 mm or 1.4 ml tubes without fear of contaminating the pipette shaft.
The 1250 l SHORT GripTips allow users to pipette closer to the workbench, enhancing pipetting ergonomics for repeated large volume pipetting activities.
The larger aperture of WIDE BORE GripTips-1.5 mm inner diameter-reduces shearing forces, enhancing the uniformity of cell-based treatments without compromising cell survival, spreading, or proliferation. Additionally, these tips decrease flow resistance when pipetting some non-aqueous fluids. For example, they facilitate the entry of highly viscous solutions- such as 80 percent glycerol-into the tip and help prevent foaming when dispensing washing agents such as Tween® 20. The new ECO Rack options for these specialists GripTips complement and enhance INTEGRA's existing line of ecologically friendly pipetting solutions while keeping the high standards expected by clients.
