How an equivalent match works: Consumables

An equivalent match in Quartzy is a scientifically vetted alternative. Here is an example of how an equivalent consumable product might be offered to you through Quartzy's Effortless Quotes Program.

For consumables like paper towels, gloves, glassware, centrifuge tubes, pipettes, tips, and safety glasses, Quartzy’s science team is making sure the equivalents can do the job, are the right size, and are what you’d expect. The hope is that your lab members will never know you saved bundles on an equivalent with Quartzy!

Here’s an example of how we would match gloves:

Further examples

  • Glassware: We verify the volume, glass grade, and if applicable, that their fittings match.
  • Centrifuge tubes: We match volume, racked/bulk, sterility, RNase/DNase/Pyrogen free, centrifugation max speed.
  • PCR tubes: We check all of the things checked for normal centrifuge tubes plus verify if the caps are domed, flat, optically clear (for qPCR), attached, and if they’re in strips.
  • Petri dishes: We check sterility, volume, and stackable/slippable.

To sum up, our science team is making sure every detail that is important to your experiment and your ergonomic comfort is the same, so rest assured!
