Millipore® EcoStand™ Centrifuge Tube Rack Holders for 15mL & 50mL Tubes
Millipore's EcoStand™ centrifuge tube holder is an environmentally responsible alternative to conventional petroleum-based plastics. In addition to being made from a biodegradable corn-based resin, the EcoStand™ also features a user-friendly design for both the 50mL and 15mL centrifuge tube formats. The biodegradable and compostable EcoStand™ is made from a corn-based bioplastic resin. The stand was designed and developed in Millipore's Danvers, Massachusetts facility where the electricity we use is completely offset with green-e certified renewable energy. As a result, it reduces the use of non-renewable energy by more than 95 percent and provides a 200 percent reduction in greenhouse gases. Millipore's logo on the EcoStand™ indicates that the product is biodegradable and compostable.
The plastic resin used meets international standards ASTM D6400 and EN 13432 for compostable plastics, and ASTM D7081 and EN 17556 for biodegradable non-floating plastics in marine environments. It is engineered to fully biodegrade in diverse natural environments, including soil, home compost, industrial compost, and both fresh and salt water. Racks are compatible with standard 50mL and 15mL centrifuge tubes from numerous manufactures. Temperature Tolerance: -80 degree C to 45 degree C.
