Introducing FastZAP™ Filter Tip Refills

publication date: Feb 20, 2024
author/source: Alpha Laboratories Ltd.



ZAP™ Premier Filter Tips – Now in Eco-conscious Refill Packs

FastZAP™ Filter Tip Refills represent a significant step forward in sustainability, while maintaining the exceptional 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.

With FastZAP refills, laboratories can now drastically reduce their plastic usage without compromising on the quality of filter tips, needed for precise applications. Designed to fit seamlessly into empty pipette tip racks, FastZAP refills bring the convenience and lower environmental impact, of the renowned Fastrak® refills, to the realm of 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: simply 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 10μm pore size autoclavable filter, FastZAP tips ensure reliable performance in demanding laboratory settings. 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.

FastZAP Filter Tip Refills are now available, in a range of 10 styles/volumes, offering laboratories a cost-effective and environmentally conscious solution for their filter tip needs.
