Think of these empty tip racks as a smart choice when you’re using a refill system for your tips. By opting for these racks, you not only save money for the lab but also contribute to reducing plastic waste. You get to pick between two materials, polypropylene (PP) and polycarbonate (PC), depending on what you need. And if you prefer using bagged tips, feel free to choose that option as well.
- PC material rack: can be autoclaved, handles high temperatures and high-pressure sterilization well, maintains its shape.
- PP material rack: can also be autoclaved, but lightweight and convenient for carrying, cost of it is competitive.
