Filtered Pipette Tips
These filter tips are the face of pipetting technology. Filtered pipette tips are also referred to as aerosol barrier tips as they are fitted with a filter inside the proximal part of the pipette tip, protecting the pipette from aerosols and aspirating viscous or volatile samples into the shaft. This not only protects the pipette from physical damage that might be caused otherwise but also protects against cross-contamination between samples. These filtered pipette tips are ideal for PCR, qPCR, and sensitive sample pipetting.
Filtered pipette tips are a perfect choice tip to utilize while training new individuals who are using a pipette for the first time. The filter inside of these tips will prevent over-aspiration of sample up into the inside of the pipette shaft, which will damage a pipette creating high costs.
Whether you are operating a university lab filled with students who have never aspirated a pipette before or a laboratory setting training new technicians on proper technique, filtered tips are a cost effective tool that can be used as a preventative measure towards protecting your pipettes longevity. Any laboratory that uses air displacement pipettes puts their samples at risk of carryover for contamination.
Filtered pipette tips eliminate this possibility, preventing subsequent samples from being potentially exposed to aerosols during dispensing. As accuracy and sample sensitivity are ever increasing, filtered pipette tips are becoming more commonplace in the lab setting. Pipette filter tips are made with medical grade plastic and a robotically inserted 10 µm filter to provide precision and ensure protection when handling any sample.
The sophisticated ZAP technology prevents contamination while completely preventing sample-carry over. These tips are innovative and deliver the highest quality sample handling. The precision of the pipette filter tips is unmatched. Pipette filter tips are necessary to provide the most accurate pipetting results. These sterile pipette filtered tips come in a variety of forms including:
Low Retention, Wide Orifice
Sorenson BioScience Filter Pipette Tips
Ideal for PCR, DNA amplification, and radioisotope handling
The inert,hydrophobic barrier prevents pipettor contamination
Over-pipetting will not contaminate valuable samples
Universal fit on research-grade pipettors
The filter contains no leachable additives
Small micron pore sizes,<20 microns
Onetouch Filter Tips
Pipette tip filters offer a liquid-sealing barrier devoid of any contaminates or additives that can cause PCR, molecular, or analytical methodology and protocol issues.
Innovative – Pipetting as you’ve never felt it A revolutionary tip that is manufactured from two resins, OneTouch tips provide a soft color-coded top collar and a rigid,ultra-clear polypropylene body.
Ergonomic – Soft tip requires less pressure to create an optimal seal tips reduce the necessary sealing and reciprocal ejection force felt with traditional single resin polypropylene tips. Tips are excellent for multichannel pipettors and reduce pipettor wear.
Protection- Seals out aerosols and liquid contaminates while preventing cross-contamination and sample carryover.
Improved Accuracy- Design is optimized for maximum consistency in air flow, form, fit, and function across a broad spectrum of pipetting volumes
Filter Tips Usage
Filter tips are most useful when the resins and organic compounds are vulnerable to contamination caused by transferring, or the contamination of pipettes from samples. The filter stops the liquid and aerosols from getting inside the pipette tips when pipetting is done.
