Bangalore: Eppendorf expanded its tissue culture consumables (TCC) product range with launch of new Easypet 3, cell counting plate and CellRepel TCC in the Indian market. Speaking exclusively to BioSpectrum, a company official said that, "Cell counting plate and CellRepel TCC are launched in India while Easypet 3 has been recently launched worldwide. However, the first two products will be available in neighboring nations of India such as Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh."
The official refused to disclose the price for these products and further added that, "Eppendorf cell counting plate provides a convenient solution for cell counting. The pre-assembled single-use chambers save time and ensures cleanliness. Similarly, Eppendorf CellRepel TCC features our innovative hydrogel-based CellRepel surface and are designed to minimize cell and protein adherence. The CellRepel surface is available for a selection of tissue culture vessels (T-25 flask, 60 x 10mm dish, 6- and 96-well plate)."
New Easypet 3 electronic pipetting aid gives greater accuracy by controlling the speed conveniently and intuitively with the use of the operating buttons. The new Easypet 3 boasts decreased battery charging time to three hours, allowing for increased cordless operation time. Vibrant backlit LEDs highlight the battery status contributing to the user's peace of mind. It is lightweight, well-balanced and extremely easy to use. Being cordless, it enables flexibility in the laboratory allowing the user to freely move around the workplace.
