ECO-TEK reagents enable IVD manufacturers to reduce the environmental impact of laboratory reagents.
Windsor, CT (PRWEB) January 27, 2014
ECO-TEK products, the only commercially available line of environmentally safe immunoassay reagents, are now available exclusively from Rainbow Scientific, Inc., the North Americans partner of Kem-En-Tec Diagnostics. ECO-TEK reagent formulations contain no biological hazards (such as BSA) or chemical hazards (including toxic organic solvents and the toxic preservatives mercury and azide) commonly found in diagnostics assay components. These products address a growing demand to reduce environmental pollution derived from laboratory reagents, including elimination of mercury-containing waste.
The ECO-TEK product line includes ready-to-use substrates, buffers, stabilizers, enzymes and streptavidin for immunoassay applications. These innovative reagents provide assay quality, sensitivity and stability in ELISA, blotting and immunohistochemistry applications. Users can also reduce water use and waste by up to 50% in a normal immunoassay by using WellChampionTM, a dual purpose ECO-TEK plate blocking and stabilization buffer that can eliminate all washing steps in immunoassay plate production.
“ECO-TEK reagents enable individual IVD manufacturers to reduce the environmental impact of their laboratory reagents,” says Peter Mousseau, President. “Rainbow Scientific, Inc. can assist manufacturers with custom formulated products, custom dispensing and bulk orders.”
