ABD Laboratory to Tackle Global Lab Consumable Shortage

Equipment purchase is one-time, but consumable demand is repetitive and more than ever.

As the golden standard test for diagnosing Covid-19, the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test has been conducted for millions of people. These results led to a global shortage of laboratory consumables, especially PCR plates, PCR tubes, pipette tips, and other lab products. Having said that, these laboratory consumable production needs to be high on quality as it should not hamper the medical testing or the efforts on scientific research.

The Department of Defense (DOD) even awarded a $33 million contract to Tecan for pipette tips production for Covid-19 testing. The laboratories, hospitals, and research centers have high standards, namely high precision molds to ensure compatibility with high-tech medical equipment. Such premier lab products usually end up in government agencies and world-renowned research institutes. So, what about the rest of the labs and centers? ABD laboratory aims at addressing the issues at a global level by offering high-quality PCR plates, PCR tubes, and filter pipette tips. The filter tips are designed to protect pipettes and samples from getting contaminated, perfect for PCR amplification applications, and essential for any liquid handling in everyday lab procedures.

Unlike one-time purchase of thermal cycler equipment, the demand for consumables is repetitive, such as PCR tubes, which are made up of polypropylene and are ideal for all kinds of PCR protocols. They are compatible with popular and common thermal cycler blocks. The deep seating caps ensure a contamination-free environment. The convenient combo packs of caps and tubes simplifies procedures for bulk procurement. The volume can be as small as 0.1ml, 0.2ml for quick testing. The 8 strips are even more popular than single tubes for high productivity.
