Pipette tips made from cooking oil


Ever since vessels made of glass were replaced by fossil-based plastic vessels, these have been irreplaceable in laboratories world-wide. This is because they provide the required quality standards for increasingly demanding research. This is a growing challenge in terms of sustainability. As a result, Eppendorf not only focuses on developing new products, but also on new, more environmentally friendly materials.

Following the successful launch of a new generation of bio-based Eppendorf Tubes® , Eppendorf is taking the next step and introducing the epT.I.P.S.® BioBased pipette tips to the market, which are also manufactured from at least 90% renewable, bio-based materials (recycled from cooking oil waste and residue, for example).

In addition, the Reload variant developed especially for these pre-sterilized pipette tips saves up to 54% plastic in comparison to disposable racks, considerably reducing waste. These new Reloads are used with the epT.I.P.S.® Box 2.0, and provide the same ease of use and reliability for pipette tip sterility and purity.

Our production center for consumable products in Oldenburg, Germany meets the requirements of the ISCC PLUS (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) certification system. Additionally, the sustainability of the tubes is certified by My Green Lab® via ACT (Accountability, Consistency, Transparency) certification.
