How Tubes, Plates and Pipette Tips Can Affect Your Experiments

With the voice of experts, we’ll explore what makes the difference between a good and a suboptimal consumable.

This educational webinar provides a comprehensive overview of what leachables are and their role in laboratory workflows as well as gives recommendations on how to recognise and to minimise artifacts caused by consumables, qualify consumables and increase reliability and reproducibility of experiments.

Substances leaching out of plastic consumables – so-called “leachables” – are still frequently underestimated in laboratory workflows. While possible effects of leachables are routinely taken into account in pharmaceutical or food research, this topic is still underrepresented in the majority of life science applications. Recent scientific evidence shows however that leachables can significantly affect experiments and pose a likely source of error in many assay systems for example, by inhibiting enzyme activities in bioassays or falsifying nucleic acid quantification.

Good Plastics, Bad Plastics webinar key topics:

  • Various additives used during production process may leach into the samples and pose a likely source of error in many assay systems
  • Impact of 3 critical additives to affect experiments 
  • Consumables are not created equal and how to choose high quality consumables
