We have steadily built a range of high-quality consumables for most laboratory applications to fit any budget. Over the last few years we have focused on product introductions that offer a sustainable benefit, whether that is through recyclable or recycled packaging, reload and reusable products, or products that use cardboard in replacement of plastic. Our latest innovation is the appCYCLE 2.0, this is a game-changer for laboratory sustainability.

The easiest way to be green in the lab is to use less plastic. The RNA Extraction kits use up to 60% less plastic consumption compared to other extraction methods and no usage of hazardous reagents.

Mutlus Biotechnology ‘Proliferum LSR’ is serum-free and ‘Vitronectin’ is animal free, making them both the perfect choice for those who want to more sustainable in Cell Culture research.
