Grenova Partners with European Distributor

Grenova Inc., a USA based company, announced today an agreement with GC biotech BV for the distribution of their TipNovus product lines. Under this new agreement GC biotech BV becomes the exclusive distribution partner of Grenova Inc. tip washing devices in the EU market.

“At Grenova, we see that high consumption of plastic consumables is an excessive, avoidable operational cost for laboratories and a significant contributor to environmental pollution. Therefore, our passionate and dedicated Grenova team embarked on a relentless mission to create devices that enable labs to recycle and wash consumables in large quantities. Our mission is to enable labs to grow toward sustainability while reducing operational costs associated with plastic consumables globally. We are excited and look forward to partnering and collaborating with the GC Biotech BV team to introduce Grenova devices and its mission into the European market.” said Ali Safavi, CEO at Grenova Inc.

“Since the establishment of GC biotech BV, we have been focusing on the high throughput automation market very strongly. We cover the entire EU market and our highly educated team of Engineers and Applications Specialists are delivering the high standard of service these kind of customers need. Becoming the European partner of Grenova Inc. fits in our Corporate Social Responsibility Policy contributing to a more sustainable and waste-free world. Reusing the washed robotic tips contributes not only to a better environment, but also reduces costs for customers.” Said Glenn Nohar, CEO at GC biotech BV.

The distribution agreement with GC biotech BV is effective immediately and covers all Grenova Inc. products (TipNovus, TipNovusMini and TipLumis).

Grenova was founded in 2014 with a focus on providing high throughput automated devices to wash and dry laboratory plastic consumables for reuse purposes in order to cut down on costs and plastic waste in the life sciences industry. Grenova started with its initial focus on pipette tips, the most common plastic consumable used widely across labs. Currently, Grenova devices have been validated and implemented across all different labs in the industry, such as clinical, genomics, pharmaceuticals, and many others for different assays and sample types. Grenova customers in the US have reported an average savings of over 90% on cost and waste reduction on their annual pipette tips consumption. As of today, and continuously growing, over 62 million pipette tips have been safely washed and reused in highly accredited production labs without any compromise to the samples or the results.
