Company News Hot Off The Press

Grenova TipNovus Benchtop Available Now
As the number of samples processed in labs using high-throughput processes has increased, there has been a corresponding rise in the level of waste, such that in 2010, four million pounds of plastic pipet tips were disposed of after just one use. If all these pipet tips were to be lined up end-to- end, the distance would circle the earth six times. This has led to significant environmental pollution. Read more.
