New eco-conscious refill packs help to reduce plastic usage

16 Feb 2024


FastZAP™ Filter Tip Refills have been designed to have a lower environmental impact

FastZAP™ Filter Tip Refills represent a significant step forward in sustainability, while maintaining the quality and performance expected from ZAP™ Premier Filter Tips. This latest innovation from Alpha Laboratories Ltd. is the next step in the company’s drive to reduce the environmental impact of laboratory consumables.

FastZAP refills allow laboratories to drastically reduce their plastic usage without compromising on the quality of filter tips, needed for precise applications. Designed to fit into empty pipette tip racks, FastZAP refills bring the convenience and lower environmental impact, of the Fastrak® refills, to filter tips.

The environmentally conscious packaging of FastZAP refills is manufactured exclusively from recyclable and renewable materials. The carton is made of 100% recycled paper that is printed with vegetable-based inks, eliminating the use of ink products that typically contain a lot of heavy metals. The refilling process is easy: lift a single wafer from the refill stack, place it over the re-usable rack, and snap the wafer into place, making this transition to support sustainability initiatives in laboratories effortless.

Manufactured from premium polypropylene with a pure 10 μm pore size autoclavable filter, FastZAP tips ensure reliable performance. They are certified RNase, DNase, and endotoxin-free, meeting the highest standards of cleanliness and purity. Each refill undergoes a rigorous validation process to ensure sterility, providing peace of mind in sensitive applications.
