OEM Solutions for SARS-CoV-2 research: Our Technology – Your Product

Eppendorf OEM supplies quality solutions to some of the world’s top Diagnostic companies on the front lines of research and vaccine development. As a leading OEM provider, we know that offering customized solutions is imperative in times of crisis.  Even in challenging times, like we are facing now with the SARS-CoV-2 research, Eppendorf demands the highest quality standards for your products; providing assurance that your customers are achieving the best possible results. Our LoRetention® tip technology is just one example of a solution that ensures the upmost sample integrity by minimizing loss of critical material during pipetting.  It is this unparalleled attention to detail that ensures your customers’ samples are never sacrificed.  At Eppendorf, we believe that sample integrity is paramount, meaning not only is your sample safe, but also your people – because every drop counts.


Sample Integrity is Paramount

Once lost or compromised, a sample is gone forever. Often additional samples cannot be retrieved or only with substantial costs or time delays. Thus, sample integrity is paramount. It must be established and maintained throughout the workflow. Making compromises, even in a single workflow step, can jeopardize your sample and the entire result.


Sample integrity is dependent on three main elements:
 

  • Avoiding contamination
  • Minimizing unspecific binding of rare or selected molecules
  • Reproducibility of processes


Avoid Contamination in SARS-CoV-2 research

There is a vast diversity of unwanted contaminants:

  • Target molecules, leading to false-positive results
  • Molecules with comparable characteristics in e.g. photometry, leading to false-positive results.
  • Reaction inhibitors, leading to false-negative results
  • Chemicals degrading the target molecules or cells, leading to false-negative results
  • Leaching substances from certain consumables

General Good Laboratory Practice is fundamental to prevent contamination. Additionally, the right products can help in this endeavor. Tight fitting tube caps, raised rims of plate wells, individually wrapped consumables, aerosol tight centrifuge rotors, powerful UV lamps, etc. all help to avoid contamination.

Minimizing unspecific binding of rare or selected molecules

Some samples are in low abundance from the beginning. Especially in these cases, it is crucial to retain as much as possible of your target molecule or cells throughout your workflow. Eppendorf consumables with low binding characteristics can reduce target molecule loss substantially.


Reproducibility of processes

Maintaining sample integrity continuously throughout the process from raw material to reportable result is a daily challenge in every lab. Eppendorf products with their verified performance specifications support consistent processes and reproducible test results in every single run.
