Good Plastics, Bad Plastics - How tubes, plates and pipette tips can affect your experiments

Sponsored by: Eppendorf, Eppendorf


The live event will start at 8am PDT, 11am EDT, 5pm CEST, 11pm CST.

Substances leaching out of plastic consumables – so-called “leachables” – are still frequently underestimated in laboratory workflows. While possible effects of leachables are routinely taken into account in pharmaceutical or food research, this topic is still underrepresented in the majority of life science applications. Recent scientific evidence shows however that leachables can significantly affect experiments and pose a likely source of error in many assay systems for example, by inhibiting enzyme activities in bioassays or falsifying nucleic acid quantification.  This educational webinar presented by Eppendorf and hosted by LabRoots will provide a comprehensive overview of what are leachables and their role in laboratory workflows as well as give recommendations on how to
•    recognize and to minimize artifacts caused by consumables
•    qualify consumables
•    increase reliability and reproducibility of experiments

A live Q&A session will follow the presentation, offering you a chance to pose questions to the presenter.
