The Eppendorf Research® plus single-channel pipette line-up with variable volume has been certified with an “ACT®” Environmental Impact Factor Label by the “My Green Lab®” non-profit organization. By emphasizing Accountability, Consistency, and Transparency (ACT) around manufacturing, energy and water use, packaging, and end-of-life, the ACT label makes it easier for labs to choose more sustainable products. ACT-labeled products are independently audited by the Sustainability Management & Strategy Collaborative (SMSC, a consulting firm for sustainable management practices) and published by My Green Lab.

Eppendorf Research plus pipettes: manufactured sustainably, highly ergonomic and built to last

Eppendorf is committed to continuously improve the environmental impact of its business activities. The company has already implemented several steps such as manufacturing all Research plus pipettes in a modern facility powered by 100% renewable energy, using re-usable packaging systems for parts suppliers and increasing the share of recycled material in their packaging.

With innovative features such as spring-loaded tip cones to reduce tip attachment forces, and an ergonomic, lightweight design, Research plus pipettes support healthy working conditions in the lab. With regular cleaning and inspection, they can serve scientists for years.

Eppendorf Research plus pipettes are the first product in their category to be certified with an ACT label.

Additional products that received My Green Lab ACT Labels in 2021 include the Eppendorf Conical Tubes 25 mL as well as several Eppendorf CryoCube® ULT freezers.

In the evaluation of the tubes, it was particularly positively assessed that this new tube format can replace the conventional 50 mL conical tube in a large number of routine applications and thus not only achieves significant material savings in its manufacture, but also requires up to 33 % less storage space in a ULT freezer like the CryoCube® F740hi due to its approx. 20 % lower height. This means an increase in freezer capacity utilization of up to one-third as well as high energy savings.
