Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Reimagine. The Closed Loop Design Process.
What does it take to be green in a world of plastic? Labcon is committed to developing innovative products that provide the high quality performance you need with the additional benefit of reducing our consumption of the world’s limited resources. We design every product with their full life cycle in mind and incorporate concepts of “eco-efficiency,” using minimalist packaging, recycled plastics, recyclable materials, and reusable products. Every product that goes through the development process is evaluated for environmental impact and sustainable end of life solutions.
The Earth Friendly® Promise
The Earth Friendly® symbol is proudly displayed on our product packaging and literature, but Earth Friendly® is more than just a slogan, it is a promise to the planet. To keep that promise, Labcon has implimented sustainable goals and practices that address the environmental impact of product packaging, waste, and life cycles. Labcon designs and manufactures reusable, refillable, and recyclable products that use less plastic, incorporates more recycled and recyclable materials, revolutionary bioplastics, and minimal packaging. Labcon’s manufacturing plant uses renewable energy and efficient, waste-free machines to manufacture every product.
Sustainable from the Start
Sustainable Product Design
Labcon leads our industry in sustainable solutions. Our IntegraPack® centrifuge tube packaging is 25% smaller than competing products while delivering the same number of centrifuge tubes. Our Patented Eclipse™ pipet tip refill packaging delivers the maximum amount of pipet tips using the least amount of packaging than any other major suppler. Eclipse is over 60% usable product. Most other systems have significantly more unusable packaging. Labcon’s TSS™ Tip Server System uses 97% less packaging than pre-racked tips for robotic pipetting workstations.
