When shopping for pipette tips, it's easy to get lost in the variety of options, from bulk tips to boxed tips, micropipette tips to large-volume tips, matching equipment such as manual pipettes and a variety of automated robotic arms, and a range of tips to choose from for each application. To help you sort through the vast of pipette tips, we have compiled a basic list of pipette tips. While this is not a comprehensive list of all pipette tips on the market, it includes the most common pipette tips.


Which pipette tip should I use?

There are a variety of pipette tips currently on the market that meet a variety of requirements and require flexible performance for multi-purpose applications. Here are a few examples to help you decide:


1.Low retention tips. Low-retention tips reduce sample size by 3-5 times compared to traditional tips. The tips are designed with polymer technology that makes the inner surface of the tip more hydrophobic, significantly reducing sample volume.

2.Extended tips. Extended tips are widely used in applications where it is necessary to access the bottom of deep containers without the user touching the side areas. These products can help you minimize sample contamination problems and make it easier to reach the bottom of long, narrow containers while working.

3.Wide mouth tips. Wide-mouth tips are mainly used for handling macromolecules and high-viscosity liquids. At the same time, wide-mouth tips can reduce the shearing force on cells, DNA and RNA, thereby protecting these fragile cell samples, such as macrophages and hybridomas. cells and liver cells.

4.Conductive tips. Conductive tips are mainly used with automated pipetting workstations and have conductive capabilities and excellent antistatic capabilities. They can detect liquid levels and accurately and automatically measure the volume of pipetting, making automatic sample addition more intelligent and precise. In addition, conductive tips can also help detect liquid components and facilitate liquid phase component analysis. Its electrical conductivity capabilities are particularly useful for liquid handling in pharmaceutical testing systems.

5.With filter pipette tips. The filter prevents aerosol transfer, which is critical when performing sensitive testing. The filter prevents particles from being transferred into the sample, thus minimizing contamination. It also protects pipetting equipment from contamination.

6.Sterile filtered tips. Sterile filtered tips are designed for applications with high cleanliness requirements, and sterile pipette tips prevent biological contamination during pipetting. They are considered ideal tip choices for forensic and genetic analysis work.
