Are the tools in your lab compliant to the IVD Directive?
Do they need to be?
To support regulatory compliance, Eppendorf offers manual air cushion pipettes, pipette tips and centrifuges in two versions now:
An EU-IVD compliant, CE marked version for diagnostic applications (according to Directive 98/79/EC), and a General Lab Product version for research applications. EU-IVD compliant products give peace of mind by supporting your documentation and accreditation requirements where needed.
Quality promise of Eppendorf
"Both versions follow the same extremely high quality standards at Eppendorf. We are not making any compromises if it comes to precision, accuracy, robustness, safety and ergonomics. By giving you, our customer, the choice, we spare you the effort of validating a “research product” for clinical purposes or the inconvenience of using a “clinical product” for research and having application examples from an unrelated field only. We want you to concentrate on your work, for the better of mankind, and enable you to take care of necessary EU-IVD compliant documentation."
