Labcycle System / Laboratory Equipment

Labcycle System
Labcycle System

It's clear in academic literature and in the scientific community that sustainability in laboratories is a massive, growing, and complex problem. Labcycle aims to reduce the quantity of waste laboratories contribute by helping labs to get 2-5 more uses from plastic items such as pipette tips, eppendorf tubes, and centrifugal tubes. This solution saves labs money, reduces their environmental impact, and helps scientists to target numbers 11, 12, and 13 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Labcylce does this by cleaning equipment and focusing on implementing cleaned equipment seamlessly into a lab professional's workflow.
