INTEGRA’s adjustable tip spacing pipettes speed up production of educational kits for the next generation of scientists

publication date: Nov 9, 2020
author/source: INTEGRA Biosciences AG


Biotechnology education company Edvotek is dedicated to bringing high technology sciences to the classroom, helping future scientists to learn about the rapidly evolving biotechnology industry. The company uses INTEGRA Biosciences’ pipettes to produce training kits for teachers, helping them to share the latest exciting scientific developments with their students.

Thomas Cynkar, Vice President of Manufacturing at Edvotek, explained: “If teachers don’t have access to the equipment and kits necessary to teach children about the latest scientific discoveries, this could negatively affect the education of those wanting to pursue a career in science. Edvotek was created to address this issue, and was actually the first company to make biotechnology products exclusively for high schools, colleges and middle schools.”

“We acquired our first VOYAGER adjustable tip spacing pipette in 2017, and immediately noticed a world of difference in terms of speed and accuracy for dispensing reagents. As we’ve grown as a company and our kits have become more popular, we’ve gone from pipetting a couple of hundred samples a week to processing thousands of tubes. Our VOYAGER pipettes make the whole process so much faster and more accurate, and dramatically increase our throughput. It’s so easy to process numerous tubes in racks with different spacing – and with single handed operation – which we simply couldn’t do with our previous pipettes. We have much more confidence in the pipetting performance, helping to maintain the quality of our kits, and have more than doubled the speed with which we're able to fill the tubes – it’s perhaps even three to four times faster than previously, which is amazing.”
