Reducing how much plastic goes into each product
Biotix has embraced a comprehensive approach to help minimize plastic waste. Our technique focuses on addressing the issue at it’s source: by designing and manufacturing products that use less plastic. Our sustainable practices start before products are even manufactured, thereby minimizing the amount of plastic entering the waste stream in the first place. Our efficient tip designs contain over 30% less plastic than competitor tips while maintaining exceptional quality.
In addition to our success in eliminating waste from our pipette tips, we are also proud to offer the lightest pipette tip rack in the world. This rack supports our sustainable philosophy while still providing stability and a user-centered function. As this chart illustrates, Biotix is leading the industry by minimizing plastic waste across our product line.
