3rd Generation Mag. DNA Pure processing cartridges
13-Jul-2020

BIOplastics has, based on severe global shortages of Mag. DNA Pure Processing Cartridges, developed an alternative to these processing cartridges. Started in April 2020 as a copy of its original design we concluded with our, over 20 years IM experience, that its IM (Injection Molding) capabilities were pretty dramatic in relation to process parameters and mold life time. In June 2020 we introduced our first modification allowing casting with less extreme parameters. This 2nd generation Cartridge was developed to comply to global ongoing demands. Meanwhile, our engineers designed a new cartridge. This new 3rd generation design combines consistent and reliable, non extreme, casting without compromising product functionality, performance, yield and usage. Furthermore the amount of plastics used was reduced by 15%. Consequently this 3rd generation cartridge is more environmentally friendly with a lower Carbon (CO2) footprint compare to its original version. The 3rd generation cartridge product has been filed for a global patent (patent pending status).

The Process Plates have been verified on the Mag. DNA Pure extraction platform system by ISO 15189 accredited laboratories.

Available from the 4th of July 2020:

Supply chain (e)quality
14-Nov-2019

We all want to enjoy a wonderful meal and drink a glass of tap water to quench our thirst without having to worry about safety. The same counts for the diagnosis we receive from a laboratory test.

Therefore our commitment to quality is not restricted to our products and services. The highest standards are achieved when the entire supply chain focuses on quality, from manufacturers of thermal cyclers through distributors to end-users. End-users play the most important roll to ensure reliable (q)PCR results. After all: any lack of attention to reliability can have negative implications.

All parties involved comply with certain regulations to combat problems, concentrating on preventing instead of curing them. By doing so, the highest quality level is met.

  • Distributors control the quality of thermal cyclers with MTAS calibration tools to meet specifications
  • End-users control the quality of their thermal cyclers annually - either with Driftcon calibration tools or with accredited on-site calibration service with MTAS system – to fully understand the performance of their cycler
  • Calibration tools are calibrated in an accredited calibration laboratory to make sure that they perform according to international standards
  • (q)PCR consumables are manufactured according to strict specifications for reproducible and reliable results. The characteristics:
    * Composition is always identical so consistent results
    * Low binding: all DNA is available for a reaction
    * (q)PCR is possible in volumes as low as 5µl
    * Pyrogyn, DNA(se) & RNA(se) free

We are extremely proud to have achieved this level of quality with our cooperation partners and are committed to further expand this method.
Better be safe than sorry!

In-tube or in-well thermal cycler calibration method
03-Oct-2019

During the 19th International Metrology Congress in Paris, CYCLERtest presented a comparison between an in-tube- and in-well thermal cycler calibration method. The study - performed with BIOplastics’ tubes - showed that it is feasible to develop an in-tube method with a low measurement uncertainty. However, due to the large impact of the tube-to-well fit on the measurement uncertainty and the large variability between tubes, it is not practical to use in-tube methods for metrology purposes. An in-well thermal cycler calibration method is therefore the preferred option. Read all about the research in the abstract Comparison of temperature dynamics of various thermal cycler methods.




Slippery business
27-Aug-2019

Counting fish is key to ensure sustainable fish stocks and food security across the world. But you can’t ask them to line up can you? So how on earth do you count fish?

To assess population size of fish in the Australian waters - the third largest marine domain in the world - scientists take genetic samples of juvenile and adult fish species and test them. This way they can see if there are parent-child relationships, track where fish are born and where they lived. When there is a good sample size the fish population can be determined.  It seems so simple…

But imagine scientist Tony at sea. The waves are high and the boat is rocking back and forth. He almost loses his balance once he hooks a fish whopper. Then comes the tricky part: cutting a sample of the slippery, frolicking fish. When he finally succeeds, he releases the fish and tries to put the sample in a labeled tube. When Tony is about to throw out his rod again, the waves are splashing over the edges of the boat. Tony trips and accidentally knocks over the box with samples. The tubes lie on the bottom of the boat floating in seawater. Tony tries to save the samples, but most of the identifying stickers on the tubes are soaked through the water. Half of today’s work is down the drain and unfortunately not for the first time.

Desperately seeking for a solution, they ended up with BIOplastics in Landgraaf where they master the technology to laser mark each individual tube. Every tube has an attached cap with a laser marked, unique and non-erasable code. No more sample loss and opening and closure of the tubes can be done with one slippery hand only. “It’s without any doubt, the only plastic we can’t do without”, says Tony.

So next time when you prepare a tuna steak, remember how this particular piece of plastic pays a big role to ensure there is enough fish on your plate.

CYCLERtest gained US Patent for Optical Calibration of qPCR cyclers
11-Dec-2018

CYCLERtest is proud to announce that its patent for the optical calibration of qPCR cyclers is now also granted in the USA. The US patent complements similar patents held by CYCLERtest in Europe and Japan.

Breakthrough
The traceable Optical Calibration tool and service is ‘a major breakthrough for molecular diagnostics and life sciences’ according to CEO Tom Hendrikx. ‘With this advanced technique variables in qPCR are monitored, minimized and become controllable. This gives laboratories a better understanding of the qPCR process and enables them to expand its capabilities. This superior method with new developed hardware supersedes the, so far used, non traceable techniques as biological testing, crystal color changes and others!’

Combination
The innovative technique is based on the traceable calibration of temperature, optical detection and light of (q) PCR cyclers (excitation and emission). A truly unique method since these components are not only detected and generated separately but also in relationship to each other. By doing so, the performance of the real-time thermal cycler is monitored and calibrated like never before.

About CYCLERtest
CYCLERtest - a pioneer and global leader in ISO 17025 accredited (q)PCR cycler calibrations - is headquartered in The Netherlands and represented by qualified distributors worldwide. Its highly accurate calibration tools and services enable laboratories to monitor the performance of their thermo cyclers according to global quality requirements.

New Easy One Hand Opening Closure Screw Cap
17-Jul-2009

Last year we introduced our innovative screw cap tubes, which can be used over the impressive temperature range of – 200 °C to +100 °C.

Due to the fact that some customers prefer “Easy Closure-one-hand opening” of screw cap tubes, BIOplastics has designed an Easy Closure Cap for the Screw Cap tube range. Customers can now opt for either Regular Closure or Easy Closure. For robust applications such as long term storage: >= 3 years below - 60 °C or incubation at >= 95 °C for >= 2 hours, one should opt for the regular closure caps. For less robust applications: <= 3 years higher than -60 °C or less stringent incubation <= 100 °C, <= 1.5 hours, one can opt for the Easy Closure Cap. Both types of caps incorporate BIOplastics’ non leaking Smart Closure Cap Technology.

The Easy Closure Cap is manufactured from a completely different material. All types of Screw Caps and Screw Tubes are available in 10 different colors, DNase, RNase, Pyrogen, Metal and ATP free.
