The advantage of being “green” at the workplace is that it may benefit us all. However, working in the lab can make it difficult to be environmentally friendly. While eliminating waste in molecular biology experiments may not be possible or practical, you can substantially decrease packaging and shipping materials at different stages of the molecular biology workflow. 

Now you can help minimize waste while maintaining the same great results in your nucleic acid electrophoresis experiments. Testing has shown that product quality and long-term stability are unaffected by ambient shipping of Thermo Scientific DNA ladders. Go ambient today and:

Minimize waste

  • Smaller shipping boxes = less cardboard
  • No refrigerant for transport = no cold gel packs or dry ice to dispose of
  • Fewer expanded polystyrene (EPS) coolers

Take advantage of great options
