Single-use systems are made primarily of plastic, and I think most people agree that plastic consumption should be reduced and recycling increased. In fact, the plastic used in single-use technologies is of excellent quality because it has limited or no additives.

To immerse even more young minds in the world of science, MilliporeSigma launched the Curiosity Cube in 2017.
