4titude, from research to molecular diagnostics
Our 4titude brand specializes in the design and manufacture of consumables and bench top instrumentation for the life sciences industry. Since its foundation in 2005, the brand continues to grow a range of innovative products, focusing on:
- PCR, qPCR & sequencing tubes, plates and seals for manual and robotic use
- assay plates and seals for imaging, recommended by plate reader manufacturers
- quality polypropylene storage plates of varying volumes for manual and robotic use
- specific adhesive plates seals, including gas permeable and moisture resistant seals
- automated and semi-automated heat sealing instrumentation and materials
The launch of the 4titude FrameStar® range of two-component PCR plates, in 2006, marked the beginning of the ongoing success story of 4titude. This range is now the most comprehensive of 2-component (polycarbonate frame, polypropylene wells) consumables in the life sciences market.
Another area of special expertise is plate sealing solutions. 4titude comprises the widest range of sealing films and foils on the market to meet the highest customer expectations and continues to work on innovative sealing solutions for sealing applications in the life sciences market.
4titude also provides expertise for innovation to customers with specific needs, either under our own brand or as an OEM agreement. This covers all steps from custom tool making, design and injection molding services to barcoding and labware calibration.
The latest developments in lab automation have been embraced by 4titude, who joined the SiLA (Standardization in Lab Automation) consortium, working towards SILA compliance of instruments and consumables.
Thus, all 4titude instruments are compliant with SiLA standards for rapid integration of automated systems. This means they can be “plug and play” connected with other instruments, such as readers, robotic arms and liquid handlers, to give a custom automated system without the need to write expensive custom drivers.
