Liquid handling specialists Anachem has made available a recycling
programme for the waste polypropylene racks produced by its new
range of high quality robotic tips designed to fit Tecan, Qiagen,
Beckman or Gilson Robotic Platforms.

The product is in direct response to laboratory automation systems and robotic platforms that use a lot of disposable plastic tips for the multiple liquid handling tasks they perform in high throughput applications.

A consequence of sterility, speed and prevention of cross contamination, the accumulation of plastic waste is a problematic issue.

Anachem has responded to customer concerns about the plastic waste generated from used tip racks by extending its 'gogreen' tip packaging recycling scheme to now include robotic tip racks.

In addition, contracted customers can have specially designated recycling bins in their institute. Anachem will then organise collection and recycling of the plastic waste.

Anachem's robotic tips are primarily aimed at those laboratories that deal with high throughput with the tips available at a lower cost compared to branded ones and delivery available next day.

The tips are manufactured from virgin polypropylene and undergo QC/QA testing in the industry. Sterile versions are certified DNase, RNase, DNA, pyrogen and ATP free. Non-sterile tips are certified RNase and DNase free.

"The economically priced nature of the Anachem robotic tips adds up to very significant savings for high throughput laboratories,"​ said Simon Renshaw, Anachem Product Manager.

"In addition, our large 20,000 square foot Luton based warehouse enables us to commit stock holding, to ensure next day delivery for contracted users throughout the UK."

Anachem robotic tips fit the designated instrument precisely, adhering to tight tolerances, ensuring easy switch over from manufacturer's own consumables without the need for re-optimisation.

They are packaged in specially designed racks that are able to withstand the extreme forces exerted upon them by the workstations.
