Integrity & Compliance
CA Green Business
At Molecular Devices, we are greatly committed to sustainability and conserving resources. We have worked diligently the past few years and achieved major milestones in cutting down greenhouse gas emissions, hazardous waste, and saved energy, water, fuel, and natural gas usage. As a result, we were officially certified as a California green business on October 24, 2018.
Our Quality Management System is compliant to the requirements of ISO9001 International Standard that enhances our ability to design, develop, manufacture, deliver, maintain and support our products according to the highest quality standards continually and consistently.
We are also ISO/IEC 17025 accredited for validation plate calibration and re-calibration processes for microplate readers. All calibration procedures performed at Molecular Devices comply with the ISO/IEC 17025 criteria.
At Molecular Devices, LLC, our products are RoHS compliant and meet material restriction requirements adopted under European RoHS, Directive 2011/65/EU. This legislation restricts the use of Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, Hexavalent Chromium, Poly-Brominated Bi-Phenyls (PBB), and Poly-Brominated Di-Phenyl Ethers (PBDE) in products that are put on the market in EU member countries.
Under the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive and implementing regulations, when customers buy new electrical and electronic equipment from Molecular Devices they are entitled to:
- send old equipment for recycling on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis (this varies depending on the country)
- send the new equipment back for recycling when this ultimately becomes waste
Instructions to both customers and recyclers/treatment facilities wishing to obtain disassembly information are found on the WEEE Information page.
China RoHS Certified
The European Union’s REACH regulation (Regulation No 1907/2006 on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) places obligations as manufacturers, importers and downstream users of chemical substances and preparations. It also places obligations on importers of products. Article 33 of REACH requires suppliers to inform recipients if any article contains more than 0.1% (by weight per article) of any substance(s) on the candidate list of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC). Based on the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruling on September 10, 2015, each component of a complex product is considered an article. The European Chemical Agency (ECHA) periodically publishes SVHC candidate list on their website at URL: http://echa.europa.eu/candidate-list-table. A list of SVHCs present above 0.1% by weight in any article of Molecular Device’s products is available by emailing email@example.com.
Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Proposition 65 also prohibits California businesses from knowingly discharging significant amounts of listed chemicals into sources of drinking water. Molecular Devices products are labeled and meet Proposition 65 requirements. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.
