New single-use waste collection bottles for Company’s VACUSIP system.

INTEGRA has launched new single-use waste collection bottles for its VACUSIP benchtop aspiration system - a compact, portable solution for safe and convenient disposal of small volumes of biological liquid waste.

The introduction of new disposable bottles allows VACUSIP users to go one step further in terms of operational safety and reducing the cost of handling / disposal of biohazardous substances.

Made of heavy duty polypropylene, the new single-use collection bottle is shatterproof and vacuum resistant, eliminating risks of breakage and contamination by the biological agents during manipulation.

Benefiting from a compact design enables all manipulation, aspiration and liquid waste collection steps using a VACUSIP to be carried out inside a biosafety cabinet, reducing risks of human and environmental contamination by manipulated biohazard agents.

A wide range of adapters are available enabling easy aspiration of liquid from almost any labware including small centrifuges tubes, microplates or flasks.

When full, the collection bottle is simply disconnected from the VACUSIP system and securely sealed with the supplied lid.

After decontamination of the bottle surface, the liquid waste can be simply and safely transferred to a licensed company for correct destruction of the biohazardous substances.

Using the new VACUSIP single-use waste collection bottles therefore not only reduces biohazard handling risks but also eliminates the need, and considerable cost, of maintaining an in-house waste disposal facility.
