publication date: Feb 27, 2014
author/source: Gilson UK

Gilson, the global leaders in liquid handling and purification are proud to announce distributorship of a selection of tubes and plates frequently used in lifescience analysis routines into the UK market.

Simport PlasticsThe new plasticware range includes microtubes, microplates and reservoirs that are regularly used in-house and recommended for use on both the PipetmaX® and Flexus liquid handling platforms.

Combining the most popular lines from Simport, Heathrow Scientific and Porvair, these strong-pedigree products are offered by Gilson UK to provide a single reliable source of the most respected laboratory vessels available for both manual pipetting or integration with automated liquid handling systems.

Amplitube™ reaction strips and Amplate™ microplates from Simport have been chosen for their thin sidewalls and bottoms which provide a more uniform and efficient temperature transfer, reducing PCR reaction time. Samples are easily recovered thanks to a low adhesion vessel surface. Also available are pyramid bottomed reservoirs from Porvair which are robustly designed and available in a variety of partition layouts. They are autoclavable and chemically resistant making them readily reusable and an SBS footprint makes them robot friendly.

Alongside these vessels, a number of storage containers are offered including racks for various tube sizes and polycarbonate cryogenic boxes that can be used down to minus 196°C. A downloadable pricelist can be found on the Gilson UK website detailing the available options.

Gilson are the manufacturer of the trusted PIPETMAN pipette range and focus their innovations on automated liquid handling systems. Gilson UK provides these products and support within the United Kingdom and Ireland for the domestic life science market.
