Fully integrated, turnkey pipette tip washing solution reduces plastic consumable waste in laboratories

02 Nov 2022


Grenova will introduce the Automated TipNovus (ATN) Package at the 10th Lab Innovations Trade Exhibition in NEC, Birmingham. As one of the newest product offerings by a leading green technology company, the ATN offers a fully integrated, turnkey tip-washing solution that improves lab sustainability, operations, and environmental impact by reducing plastic waste. The ATN Package, along with all Grenova’s sustainability systems, is available for purchase and implementation immediately with easy setup to quickly begin reducing laboratory waste. 

“Our entire product portfolio, including the new ATN Package, has been tested and implemented successfully in CLIA– and CAP-approved labs around the world as an effective way of making labs sustainable and environmentally friendly,” said Ali Safavi, founder and CEO of Grenova. “Compatible with most liquid handling and manual pipette tips out of the box, ATN is designed to integrate into a lab’s current workflow easily and quickly for immediate environmental impact.” 

Safavi will discuss the ATN package, as well as Grenova’s entire line of lab sustainability solutions, during a Live Lab speaking session on November 2, 2022, at 2:30 PM at the Lab Innovations Trade Exhibition. The highly-anticipated presentation, titled “Reduction of Plastic Waste Through the Use of Automated Pipette Tip Washing,” will offer practical and actionable ways that labs serious about sustainability can turn single-use plastic consumables into multi-use assets to make the life sciences industry more environmentally friendly. Safavi will discuss how Grenova’s products, like the ATN, are developed to help labs practice responsible science and to deliver on their promise to reduce plastic and bio-hazardous waste. 

Grenova has also been shortlisted as a finalist for the Lab Innovations Sustainable Product of the Year Award. The award is a result of Grenova’s positive environmental impact as a trusted partner of some of the largest labs around the world, including NIH, NCI, and the CDC. These labs report a dramatic reduction in plastic pipette tip consumption of over 90 percent, resulting in a decrease in plastic waste, as well as significant cost savings. Since its inception, over 1,201,932,254 pipette tips have been washed and reused with Grenova products. This has resulted in a reduction of 4,581 metric tons of carbon emission and 2,650,848 LBS of biohazard plastic waste.
