Our clients; Our passion.

"We have been using Global Glassine Bags for serveral years now and the quality is excellent. We now have 10,000 bags of Arabidopsis seed and not one has split open or failed in any way. Brian is always a pleasure to deal with, deliveries always arrive when promised and I am sure that the new website will make the process even easier."

Sandie Gray, James Hutton Institute

"I’ve been using Global’s glassine bags for over a decade to store all my Arabidopsis seeds. Put simply, I’ve found nothing better. Unlike eppendorf tubes, glassine bags may be sorted at high density in combination with desiccant and being glassine, have none of the problems associated with electrostatic cling of seeds to tube walls. They’re also easy to write on, partly see-through and don’t leak; all essential properties for long-term and reliable storage of Arabidopsis seeds. I recently ordered several boxes from Global and they reached me in Australia in less than a week."
