Greiner Bio-One to launch six new products at Analytica 2014
Greiner Bio-One is showcasing a total of six innovative new products at Analytica 2014 in Munich.
This Austro-German medium-sized company, a technology partner for the diagnostic and pharmaceutical industries, is thus once again underlining the great importance it attaches to research and development.
With the new Cryo.s biobank tubes, Greiner Bio-One which has been developing products for cryogenic storage for 30 years is expanding its product portfolio to include a solution for high-throughput sample storage in automated storage systems. A new box in the standard 133 millimetre square format for the existing 1 ml, 2 ml and 4 ml Cryo.s freezing vials is also being unveiled at Analytica, offering space for 81 Cryo.s vials. Openings on the bottom of the box enable a scanner to read the datamatrix codes without having to remove the vials.
Greiner Bio-One is exhibiting two innovations for the microscopy sector. The 384 well SCREENSTAR microplate can be used for high-throughput and high-content screening and high-resolution microscopy. Another solution for microscopy is the new development from the CELLview product family the CELLview slide. This is equipped with a removable housing that divides the slide into ten round compartments. To start with, ten independent cell cultures can be carried out for processing in a single operation after removing the housing.
In the field of cell cultivation, Greiner Bio-One is introducing the new ThinCert cell culture inserts coated with collagen type I at Analytica 2014. The additional coating with native collagen type I accelerates growth and differentiation processes several times over.
To simplify users' liquid handling, Greiner Bio-One has developed new coloured inserts for Sapphire pipette tip boxes. The customised colouring is designed to help users identify more quickly which size of pipette tips a particular box holds.
"Research and development are extremely important to us as a development-driven medium-sized enterprise," says Heinz Schmid, Managing Director of Greiner Bio-One GmbH. "As the leading trade fair for laboratory technology, analysis and biotechnology, Analytica is a key platform for us to present our new products to customers and other interested parties."
