Grenova, an innovative manufacturer of green technology that makes it possible to eliminate single-use plastic consumables in the lab industry, has launched a new microwell plate cleaner called Purus by Grenova™. The microwell plate cleaner technology is designed to bring sustainable practices into the lab, mitigate supply chain constraints and reduce costs associated with single-use plastics. Purus removes chemical and biological contaminants from 96 well plates so they can be reused safely and efficiently.
“Purus by Grenova is one more step forward for those in the life sciences community who are serious about eliminating needless plastic waste while cutting lab costs and improving supply chain resilience,” said Ali Safavi, founder and CEO of Grenova.
Labs of all sizes can simply insert a used microwell plate into Purus by Grenova™, select the clean cycle, and return later to retrieve clean microwell plates without carryover. By leveraging the new Purus system, smart labs can reuse their clean microwell plates again and again to further reduce plastic waste, save money, and protect their most important lab supplies.
Purus by Grenova™ leverages proprietary PURCS (Pressure Washed, UV, Rotation, Centrifugation, Sonication) technology. Up to four plates that conform to SBS plate format can be cleaned at a time. The SBS-compatible system is designed to avoid high temperatures and corrosive chemicals so that microwell plates are never compromised through repetitive reuse cycles.
“Best of all, Purus by Grenova is automation-compatible and is designed to work as a stand-alone instrument or integrated with automated plate handlers,” said Safavi. “We’re proud to add the new Purus system to our portfolio of innovative products that are transforming the life sciences industry and making it possible for labs to decrease waste, save money, and control the supply of their most important consumables.”
