California, with its abundance of sunshine, has a long history of support for solar energy. For Bio-Rad — headquartered in Hercules, California — solar power made business and environmental sense when considering clean energy alternatives. Bio-Rad’s solar project has proved to be a step in the right direction, mitigating the environmental impact of the company’s energy use, now and in the years to come.
Bio-Rad recognizes that reducing shipping associated with consumer products is a direct opportunity to slow greenhouse gas emissions contributing to climate change. Bio-Rad supply centers consolidate shipping and packaging. Small steps collectively lead to big change. This is the first installation in a three-part series on sustainable practices developed on the Bio-Rad campus.
Automated supply centers reduce paper and packaging waste, apart from providing convenience. As part of its sustainability efforts, Bio-Rad is increasing the number of its supply center sites. The video describes how the supply center works.
Bio-Rad has long demonstrated innovation in imaging, with the introduction of the stain-free gel electrophoresis workflow, which was rapidly followed by the launch of the Gel Doc™ EZ imager. Now, this progression continues with the release of the ChemiDoc™ MP imaging system.
