The Hamilton purity concept

To meet the highly sophisticated needs of laboratories in the Genomics, Proteomics, Cellomics, Forensic and Drug Discovery fields, Hamilton has considerably refined the production requirements for sterile/non-sterile disposable products.

The superior biological purity of the CO-RE Tips, tubes, and reagent container is guaranteed by a controlled production process. Skilled personnel, along with automated clean room production, enable contamination-free manufacturing. At regular intervals the production batch is forwarded to a highly sensitive PCR method to secure compliance with the defined purity criteria:

  • DNase-/RNase-free
  • Pyrogen-free (endotoxin-free)
  • PCR inhibitor-free

Specially for forensic applications, Hamilton has introduced a new purity grade to eliminate the residual risk of contamination of clean products. Considering that just one contamination from extraneous DNA at the crime scene or in a forensic laboratory may result in incorrect DNA profiles – rendering evidence worthless – Hamilton’s commitment to purity is of the utmost importance.

Along with the strictest purity requirements during the production process, an additional step is performed during the manufacturing and packing of disposable end products. This treatment ensures the effective removal of contaminants by physically destroying any DNA molecules. In accordance with Forensic Science International (FSI), Hamilton has validated the treatment process to prove the effectiveness of eliminating amplifiable DNA. All products awarded the Biological purityPLUS tested standard meet the following requirements:

  • Human-DNA-free
  • DNase-/RNase-free
  • PCR inhibitor-free
  • Pyrogen-free (endotoxin-free)
  • ATP-free
  • Sterile, according to ISO 11135
