Pipettes redefining stem cell research in Germany
INTEGRA Biosciences’ VIAFLO electronic pipettes are helping denovoMATRIX in Dresden, Germany, to produce modular, biomimetic coatings for cell culture plasticware that can be tailored to recreate various conditions to test adherent cell cultures.
Chief Scientific Officer Dr Richard Wetzel explained: “We have developed a range of precoated cell culture plasticware – screenMATRIX and myMATRIX – and use the VIAFLO pipettes to prepare and fix the biomimetic coating onto these products.”
“When we started the company, we chose INTEGRA from the outset because of the quality and durability of its products. I had previously worked with INTEGRA pipettes in other laboratories, so I knew first-hand about their usability, and how good the customer service is.
“We have multichannel and single-channel VIAFLO pipettes in a range of sizes, including 100, 300 and 1250 µL. The Repeat Dispense function saves a lot of time compared to pipetting aliquots one at a time, and the automatic Pipet/Mix function is also really handy – it simplifies the process and ensures that your solution is uniformly mixed.
“Quality of results is vital, and we know that we can trust the accuracy of the VIAFLO pipettes; we don’t need to double-check whether the pipette is doing what it should. The GripTips pipette tips are always correctly aligned and locked on, and the GREEN CHOICE refill inserts reduce wastage. We have complete confidence in the quality of INTEGRA products and they will always be the first choice for our laboratory.”
