We know that it can be difficult to be environmentally friendly in the lab, where sterility and convenience are of utmost importance. At times, it may seem that sustainability and benchwork are at odds with each other. Although we can’t completely solve this problem, we can make changes to our product design to help move toward the goal of a greener lab, and that’s exactly what we did with the design of our Monarch Nucleic Acid Purification Kits.
Making nucleic acid purification more greenWe asked our customers what could be done to improve upon current nucleic acid purification kits to make them more sustainable. Here are some of your suggestions, and how Monarch Kits address them:
|Reduce material usage
"Smaller kit size

"Reduce plastic waste"

"No need for lengthy
