If you need superior protection for sample and pipette then look no further! Our ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S.® SealMax self-sealing filter pipette tips offer almost 100 % protection from contaminating aerosols and biomolecules with a two-phase design that works together to bring you the best of pipetting. Overpipetted samples are stopped in their tracks with the instant closure of the Dualfilter - the white layer retains drops and splashes while the violet layer forms a barrier.
ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. SealMax are ideally suited for methods where high sensitivity and reproducibility are essential, both ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S.® and ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. SealMax are especially recommended for applications such as PCR and microbiology where preserving sample integrity and preventing cross contamination are critical.
Production without compromise!
ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. SealMax self-sealing filter pipette tips are manufactured to the highest quality under cleanroom conditions, without the use of interfering slip agents, biocides and plasticizers. Made from the purest, non-recycled materials, self-sealing filter pipette tips are ideal for molecular and microbiological applications that require the greatest sensitivity and reproducibility - without the fear of sample degradation and cross contamination.
Disposal of ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. SealMax pipette tips and their packaging material
Recycling of materials becomes more and more important every day. E.g. in Europe almost 100 % of cardboard material is already recycled. The packaging material of the ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. SealMax pipette tips is made of different materials – for the most part made from cardboard.
Eppendorf consumables and thus also ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. SealMax pipette tips are shipped in packaging in which both the shipping carton consists of at least 37 % and the folding carton consist of at least 60 % recycled cardboard.
Please support our global sustainability initiative of recycling valuable raw material by collecting the cardboard packaging material of tubes. Dispose of the packaging material in the designated collection containers in your organization and region. In respect to the wrapping foils made of Polyethylene (PE) for ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. SealMax Standard we recommend you select a dedicated recycling partner where PE material can be recycled. Contact your facility or local waste management company to understand the available recycling options for your organization.
After usage, the tips themselves are defined as potentially being contaminated. This contamination can be based on biohazard, chemical hazard, or even nuclear hazard. Therefore, recycling of these tips can be challenging. In many countries, critical waste must be burned due to legal restrictions. However, energy and heat can be recovered from thermal recycling of contaminated laboratory consumables.
To reduce the amount of critical plastic waste, you should use at least two waste containers: One for critical waste and one for non-critical waste. The definition of these two groups may depend on local regulations and should be communicated/trained in your lab accordingly. For further local waste recycling options please contact your local biosafety officer and your local waste management.
We strongly recommend a certified local recycling partner. Keeping it "local" will reduce the impact of transportation, and the "certified" aspect is recommended due to the safe and sustainable handling of lab waste.
