Plastic Laboratory Consumables Custom Made to Your Requirements

Disposable Plastic Liquid Transfer Pipettes


The Alpha brand Pastette® is the leading name for disposable liquid transfer or Pasteur pipettes. It is available in over 50 standard designs, many developed in response to specific customer requirements.

The Dual-Bulb Pastette range is just one example. It is the ideal pipette for inclusion in assay kits or for use in other applications requiring fast and easy delivery of an exact measured volume. This simple solution can readily be used in untrained hands and is available in a range of volumes from 20 to 300µl.

In addition Alpha Laboratories offers a customised design service to develop pipettes specifically to OEM requirements.

Plate Sealing Solutions


Diagnostic assay kits often contain reagents held in microtitre or PCR plates that need to be securely sealed.

Alpha Laboratories provides a range of plate sealing options that can be customised for specific manufacturing and packaging requirements. These include indexed roll formats for automation, speciality materials and adhesives, custom die-cut shapes and sizes, plus custom printing, packaging and labelling.

Stringent QC procedures for all products and certificates of compliance and sterility provide assurance of product consistency lot-to-lot.

UN3373 Compliant Packaging


Our SpeciSafe® mailing packs and other packaging solutions can be developed into custom designed kits that are ideal for clinical trials and diagnostic assays.

They ensure convenience and complete compliance for transporting biological samples between participants and testing laboratories.

Reagent Tubes, PCR and Other Consumables

Screw Cap Tubes

We also offer a wide range of screw cap microtubes, PCR plates and tubes, Universal and Bijou containers etc. that may also be required for kit manufacture.

Kits for Sample Collection & Transport, the Complete Solution

Patients often find it difficult to understand the complex instructions required to ensure Dangerous Goods compliance for return of their samples. With several layers of packaging and sometimes multiple tubes and lancets, diagnostic or health screening kits can present a daunting prospect.


Samples which are incorrectly packaged may be received in a condition where they are unsuitable for testing. This can lead to samples needing to be re-taken which can be costly both financially and in terms of time. Alpha Laboratories' bespoke sample collection and transport kits utilising the unique SpeciSafe® packaging system can make this easier.

Kits can be tailor made to contain everything required for collection of a specimen, plus a simple intuitive solution for sample return. All this can be presented in a small, smart bespoke package, enhancing your company image, and minimising transportation costs.

The range of kits available include:
