Essential to every laboratory, lab supplies enable you to perform the required tasks to achieve your scientific research goals.  Thermo Scientific™ lab supplies offer quality and superior performance while protecting you and your valuable research.

Pipettes and Pipette tips

Our pipettes and pipette tips have a proven record of meeting the demands for liquid handling in the lab. Improve your accuracy and precision with pipetting systems that incorporate years of experience and innovation for consistent, reproducible results. All you need, including worldwide service, support, and application knowledge delivering smart solutions to fit your specific needs in the lab.  We also have a guide to Good Laboratory Pipetting to brush up on your technique. There is a wide range of ART tipsFinntips, and E1 clip tips to choose from online.

Fun Fact:  What does ART in ART tips stand for?  It stands for Aerosol Resistant Tips, very appropriate given the self-sealing barrier in the tip that stops the passage of aerosols into the pipette shaft.

Multidrop™ Pico 1 & Pico 8 Digital Dispenser

Pico 1 and Pico 8 offers enhanced dispensing precision with volume as low as 11pL in any well, using up to ten times less reagent compared to manual pipetting workflows, enabling significant cost and waste reductions. Designed to enable assay miniaturization, boost productivity and improve accuracy of results makes them ideal for a broad array of low-volume applications such as qPCR, dose response curves, drug screening assays and ELISA.

Fun Fact:  This is a brand-new product just launched in early 2020, get on board with the latest technology to save you time, money, and reduce waste in your lab!

RNase AWAY™ Surface Decontaminant and DNA AWAY™ Surface Decontaminant

Eliminate RNase and DNA from laboratory surfaces. Thermo Scientific™ RNase AWAY™ is ideal for decontaminating apparatus, bench-tops, glassware and plasticware. It reduces dependency on carcinogenic DEPC treatments and saves time needed to bake glassware.

Fun Fact: more effective in decontaminating than autoclaving, saves you time and an annoying trip to the autoclave!

Nunc/Nalgene/Matrix/Abgene storage solutions

Sample storage at cryogenic and extremely low temperatures provides security for biological specimens and derivatives of those specimens, genomic material, and compounds over extended periods of time. Preserving the information associated with stored samples is a critical part of the storage process, as unidentified samples in storage are unusable and serve no purpose. Thermo Scientific has proven solutions to track and preserve your samples.

Fun Fact: All Thermo Scientific storage tubes and plates are made from 100% virgin resin so that you can be confident that you are working with clean plastic.

Nalgene labware

Not all labware is created equal. The Thermo Scientific Nalgene brand name today is well-known as the ‘go to’ name for quality plastic labware. Nalgene is designed to be extremely durable and provides the best quality material for long product life and dependably low extractables.

Fun Fact: Did you know that scientists in the lab started using Nalgene labware bottles outside of the lab which born the line of consumer Nalgene re-useable water bottles? Science with a Twist tells the story of Nalgene’s ‘ionic to iconic’ origin in their podcast.

Sterilin Certified Universal Containers – RNase, DNase, human DNA and Pyrogen Free

Manufactured under controlled cleanroom conditions, this clear robust RNase, DNase, human DNA and Pyrogen free polypropylene container has a wealth of features which make it a laboratory essential. With a working volume of 25mL and convenient self-standing conical base, it’s perfect for a wide range of general laboratory uses from sample handling to centrifugation applications.

Fun Fact:  The Sterilin Certified Universal Containers can be frozen at -80°C and still maintain the performance you need.
