PLA resin, translucent. These non sterile sampling sticks are made of earth-friendly polylactic acid.
- Green alternative to petroleum-based sampling tools; helps meet sustainability goals
- Comparable in strength and durability to PS, PP and other petroleum-based plastic resin sampling tools
- Disposal options include industrial composting for biodegradability, incineration, recycling and landfill
- Non sterile FDA Grade: safe for food, drug and cosmetic contact
The production of 100% plant-based PLA contributes less greenhouse gasses and uses less non renewable energy from source to resin than its petroleum-based counterparts, and the plants used are an annually renewable resource. The sticks are ideal for mixing samples, handling capsules, scraping containers or positioning solid samples for examination.
