The V design of the disposable laboratory spatula is a trademark of LevGo. LevGo smartSpatulas are economical disposable tools for transferring, collecting, and handling chemical and biological materials. The versatile double-ended design enables use as a spatula, spoon, scoop, scraper, stirring rod, or policeman. The unique hollow core minimizes thermal transfer for effective collection of liquid nitrogen frozen samples or stirring hot liquids. Virgin polypropylene construction is resistant to dilute acids and bases and is autoclavable.
The Antistatic micro smartSpatula features spade-sharpened tip ends, and is ideal for manipulating extremely small volumes of material. Standard spatulas feature a unique spatula/spoon end and a smaller scoop end. The Macro smartSpatula is 50% larger than the standard smartSpatula and features a spatula/spoon end and a clump-busting pick end. The long shaft of the macro spatula eases access to material in larger containers.
Standard Opaque spatulas are sent to a 3rd party processor in the USA for repackaging and sterilization. The products are sterilized to an SAL of 10-6 using ethylene oxide as the sterilant according to the guidelines of ISO 11135. The sterile product is further processed and tested to meet Endotoxin Limits per USP 85 requirements (≤ 0.5 EU/mL or 20 EU/device). These spatulas are for laboratory use only.
EcoSpatulas™ are 99% virgin polypropylene (PP) resin and 1% EcoPure™ organic additive, which helps promote biodegradation of PP. Representative samples of the EcoSpatulas and the standard 100% PP spatulas were tested according to the ASTM D5511 test method (intended to replicate conditions in biologically active landfills). EcoSpatulas biodegraded an average of 29% in the first 586 days of testing compared to 8% for standard 100% PP spatulas. Tests were conducted using 48% solids content, which is not typical; solids content in naturally wetter landfills range from 55% to 65%, while the driest landfills may reach 93%. Actual biodegradation rates will vary in biologically active landfills according to the solids content, temperature, and moisture level of the landfill. EcoSpatulas retain all the original properties and shelf life of the standard PP spatulas: they are autoclavable, resistant to dilute acids and bases, and SGS tested for compliance with US and EU food contact regulations. They will not degrade during use. It is only after extended exposure to the microbes in a biologically active landfill that they begin to break down and eventually turn into inert humus and natural gases.
*Important Notice: Laws in California, Maryland, and Washington prohibit the sale of certain products and packaging that are labeled with the terms 'biodegradable', 'degradable', or 'decomposable' or any form of those terms, or that imply in any way that the item will break down, biodegrade, or decompose in a landfill or other environment. These restrictions apply to all sales in or into these states, including such sales over the Internet. The EcoSpatula product packaging meets the requirements of California, Maryland, and Washington.
