Dr D Muruganand, Vice President, Marketing, Eppendorf
Growing trends in the health sector from nucleic acid based rapid detection in clinical diagnostics to the need for Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) technique in the IVF sector has allowed to position our liquid, sample and cell handling portfolio in a much better perspective. The new purity grades of eppendorf consumables are also setting highest standards in this segment. Addition of new pipettes to the existing range and NABL accreditation of our Pipette Calibration facility at Chennai have strengthened our capabilities in supporting and fulfilling customer needs in liquid handling arena.
Aerosol tight centrifuge rotors with IVD conform certification are introduced to minimise the risk for lab personnel towards accidental exposure of samples in the diagnostic facilities. Sample prep equipment like the MixMate and Thermomixer Comfort can comfortably handle low volume sample preparations in multiple formats
For most labs, running a 24×7 Ultralow temperature freezer (-860C) to store precious samples can be the most recurrent expense and we have introduced the High Efficiency Freezer (HEF) from our New Brunswick range which is energy efficient up to 40 percent compared to the regular models available in the market. Ultimately for labs interested in stem cell work our latest additions are the Galaxy CO2incubators with gas control and complementing tissue culture consumables. Knowing that the priority of healthcare industry is quality products and after sale service, we at Eppendorf strongly believe that the solution is with us.
