Not only the environment and vessels are important while working in plant tissue culture and seed laboratories. The specific instruments and tools which you use throughout the processes are important too. Many of these tools are available at Lab Associates.

Our Vandersluys forceps are developed solely for plant tissue culture activities. Traditional medical forceps are stiffer to secure a strong grip on organic tissues. However, this level of stiffness is not suitable for handling plant tissue.  It results in more damage to delicate plant material and can also cause hand cramp for lab operators working many hours per day. We embraced customer feedback and turned it into a bonafide product that delivers value. 

These plant tissue culture forceps have the following benefits:

  • They are light weighted;
  • Have a light grip;
  • Very easy to handle during your daily lab activities; and
  • Have high durability.

 Vandersluys straight forceps are available in the following sizes:

  • 1.    30 cm – normal tip
  • 2.   25 cm – normal tip
  • 3.   25 cm – long small tip
  • 4.   23 cm – long small tip
  • 5.   20 cm – normal tip

More sizes and tips are available on request.
