INTEGRA Viaflo has introduced GREEN PACKTM - an environmentally friendly version of its GripTipsTM pipette tips for use with its range of electronic pipettes.
Using 100% recyclable materials imprinted with soy based inks the new GREEN PACKTM packaging houses five inserts of non-sterile GripTipsTM, but without the tip boxes. Customers simply reuse their current GripTipsTM tip boxes thereby reducing their non-renewable plastic waste by 65%. As a consequence, the new GREEN PACKTM packaged GripTipsTM also require significantly less storage space.
Available in five volumes (12.5µl, 125µl, 300µl, 1250µl and 5000µl) INTEGRA VIAFLO GripTipsTM are a unique range of pipette tips that ensure the perfect connection between pipette and tip. GripTipsTM have been engineered to provide unmatched high lateral resistance and a precise, consistent tip seal with the INTEGRA VIAFLO electronic pipettes. As a result, pipette tips will never fall off while pipetting. On a multichannel pipette, tips are precisely at the same height; increasing the accuracy and precision of liquid handling. Benefiting from unique Tri-Lobe Fittings, GripTipsTM deliver low attachment and ejection forces enabling comfortable, stress-free pipetting even over extended periods of use. Produced from certified virgin medical grade polymer materials, using precise and consistent manufacturing techniques, GripTipsTM guarantee consistent, contamination-free pipetting.
