Safer Alternative to Glass, Polypropylene Pipets are Available in 5.75 and 9 Inch Lengths
Largo, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/05/2016 -- Advancements in technology are consistently making jobs easier, work faster, and life easier for people of all walks of life. From lightning quick internet to streamlined videoconferencing to medical advancements that aid doctors in surgery – the list of improvements is nearly endless. At Biofluid Focus, a recent advancement spells good news for all: flexible polypropylene Pasteur pipets. The key element to these brand new additions to the Biofluid Focus arsenal is that they flex and don't break, as opposed to their glass counterparts. Glass Pasteur pipets' fragility can be a cause for concern because sharps pose potential danger in any lab where pathogens are present. The biotechnology products company is excited for the future of these new products, which that promote lab safety.
"Polypropylene Pasteur pipets are essentially unbreakable, and reduce the risk of glove and skin puncture," expressed Jon West, President and Founder of the Florida-based company. He continued, saying "These pipets also offer pretty good chemical resistance for life science applications. While they are intolerant of strong acids and aggressive solvents, they have no issues with simple alcohols."
One additional benefit of polypropylene Pasteur pipet over glass and styrene pipets, is reduction of loss from breakage in shipping and handling. Plus, there is no need for sharps disposal! They come in two sizes: 5.75 inch and 9 inch, with sterile and non-sterile versions available. Only time will tell how valuable these newly pipets will become, but Biofluid Focus is confident their future is bright.
