Pelago Bioscience in Solna, Sweden, is taking advantage of the enhanced process security and convenience offered by METTLER TOLEDO’s Rainin TerraRack™ pipette tip racks.
Dr Charlotta Norling, Project Leader at Pelago, explained: “We perform contract research activities for the pharmaceutical industry, with a particular focus on drug-target interactions in early drug discovery. We use high quality Rainin pipettes throughout the company, because we only have a very limited amount of each drug candidate, and our studies are time sensitive, meaning we cannot afford any pipetting issues which may compromise results for our customers.”
“To save on bench space, we generally use stackable pipette tips for most of our work, but we have recently switched to Rainin TerraRacks in our cell biology laboratory. Sterility is vital for this work, and the risk of contamination when using stackable tips was unacceptable. The TerraRacks are ideal, as they come pre-sterilized. This saves a lot of work in terms of sterilizing the tips in house, and each rack has a hinged lid to ensure they stay clean – we’ve had no sterility issues with TerraRacks. The color-coding also makes it very easy to see which tip size you have – they are ideal for our cell lab and complement our Rainin pipettes well.”
