Plasticware for PCR, qPCR and pipetting

COVID-19 has caused a huge backlog in supply chains, which has been especially acute in life science laboratories that rely on many of the same consumables used in COVID-19 testing.Products such as PCR tubes and pipette tips have been in short supply.

In response to this shortage, Thistle Scientific have invested in our a line of filter and non-filter pipette tips which are now available. We are also stocking a wide range of PCR plastics for use in PCR and qPCR.

COVID-19 Products from Cleaver Scientific

UV sterilisation cabinets for PCR prep and UV cleaning

Our PCR cabinets use germicidal UV-C lamps, which have been shown to efficiently inhibit replication of SARS-CoV-2, the virus behind COVID-19.

These cabinets can be used to create a contamination free environment for the preparation of PCR and qPCR samples. UV-C irradiation also prevents cross-contamination between runs, helping to reduce the possibility of testing errors.


  • Removing nucleic acid residue left from previous PCR and qPCR setups
  • Surface disinfection of PCR setup equipment and other lab equipment


  • Available in 3 sizes to fit into your workspace
  • 4 x 15W UV-C Germicidal lamps
  • Doors fitted with safety cut-off switches
