The filter barrier on filtered pipette tips helps prevent sample carryover and contamination. Compared to the non-filtered tips, these ensure more robust results and can be a great training aid for new lab members. The tips can also be disposed of easily, making it easier to dispose of contaminated pipettes rather than having to send the whole thing to the repair shop. Listed below are some important benefits of filtered pipette tips.
The high retention of these filtered pipette tips makes them perfect for a wide variety of applications, including DNA amplification, forensics, tissue culture, and protocols involving radioactive solutions. These tips are also non-self-sealing and have a special inert filter to allow for sample recovery in the event of over-pipetting. The Bio-Cert filtered pipette tips are compatible with a variety of popular micro-pipettors.
Filtered pipette tips are compatible with most types of pipettes and are made of 100% polypropylene plastic without cellulose additives. The tips' pore size is 3-4 times smaller than other filtration techniques, which helps prevent cross contamination for researchers involved in molecular biology. They are sterile, reusable, and available in sterile racks with hinged lids. Depending on the tip size, they are compatible with most pipettor types and are compatible with many different manufacturers. Tip Loader is a fully automatical pipette tip sorting device specially designed for bulk pipette tip refill.
In addition to filter and barrier tips, some pipettes come with a variety of other features. Besides being sterile, non-barrier pipette tips are often used for non-sensitive applications, such as loading agarose gels or separating DNA. In addition to being less expensive, non-filter and barrier tips are available in bulk and pre-racked forms, as well as convenient reloads. Despite the low price and convenience of these products, they may not be sterile. However, you can always sterilize them in an autoclave.
Non-self-sealing filter tips are also available. They feature a PE filter with a sponge-like porous pathway. In the unlikely event of an over-pipet, they block the fluids. The tips are made of clear polypropylene and fit most 1000uL pipette models. When comparing non-filter tips, a single-pore filter tip is about 96mm long.
Low-retention pipette tips are particularly good for PCR experiments, which require high-quality DNA extraction. These tips also reduce the adherence of viscous liquid to the plastic tip's surface. They also feature a hydrophobic plastic additive that prevents liquid from sticking to the tips. They are also ergonomically designed to minimize joint stress injury and other common ergonomic concerns. They are more costly than non-barrier tips, but they are worth the extra money and risk of bacterial contamination.
Designed to provide the most ergonomic attachment and seal possible, Sartorius Optifit Tips are non-filtered and come in a variety of colors. Whether you're using Sartorius Biohit or Optiload pipettes, the Optifit tip is a universal fit. Optifit tips are also compatible with Sartorius Biohit pipettes, making them an excellent choice for labs that use multiple pipettes for a variety of applications.
The Optifit tips feature a patented, leak-tight seal, and a perfect fit on Sartorius pipettes. The resulting precision and reproducibility ensure optimal pipetting accuracy and reproducibility. These tips are easy to match to pipettes thanks to their color-coded trays. The tips are non-sterile and free of RNase, ensuring that they remain safe for use across laboratories and in clinical settings.
Pipette compatibility is extremely important for optimal pipetting results. Sartorius pipettes and Optifit tips must be perfectly compatible with one another, so that you can get the best results possible. If the tips are not compatible, there's a good chance the results will be compromised. In some cases, a bad tip can leak and not meet quality standards. The Sartorius Optifit Tips meet all these standards and more.
Optifit tips ensure leak-tight seal and perfect fit for Sartorius pipettes. These tips are made in an ISO 8 certified cleanroom and are compatible with most pipettes. Optifit tips are sold in a variety of packaging types to suit every need. Choose from a variety of colour-coded tip trays or the universal Optifit tip trays. They are re-usable and are available in a variety of sizes.
The versatility of Sartorius Optifit tips makes them an excellent choice for laboratories of all sizes. Optifit tips are available in both sterile and non-sterile versions. The tips are also made with the highest standards of quality and are backed by an extensive warranty. Whether you're doing research for school or conducting experiments in the lab, Optifit tips are the right choice for your lab. And with so many options available, you're sure to find one that's perfect for your needs.
