Chemicals used in the manufacturing of disposable plastic labware, such as slip agents, plasticizers or biocides, can leach out of the plastic into your sample. Scientific reports show this can lead to erroneous results in down-stream applications. Read more

How tips, tubes and plates can affect your assays

It is nearly impossible to imagine our daily life without synthetic materials. In molecular and biochemical laboratories, consumables made from plastic are used in practically every application.
In 2008 a report in Science by Dr. Andrew Holt and his group from the University of Alberta, Canada, described that chemicals used as manufacturing additives can substantially inhibit enzymatic assays and binding studies by leaching into the sample.

Purity Grades


Eppendorf has set industry standards in consumable purity levels. Building on the famous Eppendorf Quality, four additional purity grades tailor our consumables to various applicational needs - Biopur, PCR clean, Sterile - read more here.

Paving the way for modern lab standards

All consumables are subject to internal process controls on function, tightness, precision, transparency, low wetting property and high chemical and thermal resistance. Additionally Sterile, PCR clean and Biopur products are tested by an independent, external analytical laboratory for compliance – lot by lot. The results of these testings are certified in lot-specific certificates.
