The Circular Economy of Pods
Pods are at the center of our recycling and sustainability efforts. Learn more below.
Do I need to clean my pods?
Can I still recycle a pod if I threw away my port cover or filter cap?
Yes. The port cover and filter cap prevent spillage if there remains any liquid in the pod post solubilization.
Do recycling bags cost anything?
Bags and shipping labels are provided at no cost to the customer.
Where can I get more bags?
Bags are provided by Nucleus Biologics with every order of media. If you run out, you can request more directly from them or by contacting us.
