Pastette® Product Change Notification

Subject: Resin Source Change for Alpha Laboratories’ Pastettes®


At Alpha Laboratories we continually strive to optimise and improve our products to provide our customers with the best possible solutions. Periodically this involves a review of raw materials and their sourcing, to ensure continuity of supply. As a result, please be advised that we will be utilising a newly sourced Low Density Polyethylene resin for the manufacture of our Pastettes.

This new LDPE resin is a similar grade to that currently used and complies with the same regulatory requirements. A comprehensive verification has been completed to confirm all products meet our current specifications. This change will ensure our Pastettes continue to be manufactured to our high quality standards.

We expect to implement the change of low density polyethylene resin during the second quarter of 2018. Stringent source management will be implemented to maintain tight control and traceability. All other materials used in the manufacture of the products will remain the same; therefore, this change is not expected to affect the form, fit or function of our finished products.

The following supporting documents are available through these links:

If you require additional information in relation to this notification, please contact us. Thank you for your continued support of Alpha Laboratories’ Pastettes.

Quick and Simple Measured Transfers at Cwm Taf UHB Clinical Biochemistry (Graduated Pastettes)

The reason we like the Pastettes is mainly due to the graduation marks, which are great for aliquoting liquids to a rough measure in equal quantities.“We have been using the Alpha Laboratories 1ml Pastettes (LW4040) for a number of years and are very pleased with the product.

The reason we like the Pastettes is mainly due to the graduation marks, which are great for aliquoting liquids to a rough measure in equal quantities. They are also very easy to use and to dispose of.”
