FlexiBulk tip packs save space and effort in the laboratory

 

Sartorius, laboratory equipment supplier for the pharmaceutical industry, announced the introduction of a new concept of packaging pipette tips, FlexiBulk. The new orderly tip arrangement saves laboratory space and enables quick attaching to pipettes or convenient loading of tips onto tip racks.

According to Sartorius, the stackable FlexiBulk boxes take up to 40% less space and cut packaging waste by nearly 50% compared with conventional bulk tip packages. The new packaging concept also helps reduce transportation costs and laboratories’ carbon footprint.

FlexiBulk tips come with certification that they are free of RNase, DNase, and endotoxins. The tips are produced and packaged under ISO class 8 cleanroom conditions. The manufacturing process is fully automated, thus eliminating contamination.

The lid on the FlexiBulk box provides an airtight seal, ensuring complete cleanliness of the tips during transportation and storage. The lid is easy to open and is reclosable.

The compact boxes are made of recyclable but durable polyethylene material (PET). They can be stacked without any outer cardboard box needed.

The tips in FlexiBulk packs have the same high quality as other Sartorius Optifit tips available in racks and refill packages. They perfectly fit Sartorius pipettes, such as Picus, Picus NxT, eLINE, mLINE, and Proline Plus, as well as most other pipette brands, providing an air-tight seal. The FlexiBulk packs cover a tip volume range from 0.5 µl to 1,200 µl.
