Green Apple Award for tip packaging

Anyone working in a laboratory and using pipettes and tips knows how much waste tip racks produce, how expensive they are to discard, and the amount of space these used racks can occupy. For most laboratories the cost of running a recycling scheme can be prohibitory. That is why Rainin’s TerraRack pipette tip racks, winner of the Bronze Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice, are an ideal solution to this problem.

TerraRacks are made from PETE, an exceptionally strong polyester most commonly used for water and soft drinks bottles. Being manufactured in this way means the TerraRacks can be recycled along with other bottles using the bins already provided in the laboratory. This can either reduce recycling costs or eliminate them altogether.

TerraRacks contain Rainin BioClean tips and are available both for universal-fit pipettes and those equipped with the LTS LiteTouch system to ensure the integrity of samples.
