A pipette tip is a small, disposable plastic attachment that fits onto the end of a pipette. It is an essential tool for scientists and researchers who need to accurately measure and transfer small volumes of liquid in their experiments. Using high-quality pipette tips can make a significant difference in the accuracy and precision of experimental results. Cheap or poor pipette tips can lead to inconsistent measurements, contamination, or even damage to expensive equipment. Investing in quality pipette tips not only ensures accurate results but also saves time and money by reducing the need for repeat experiments or recalibration of equipment.
How to choose the right pipette tip?
(1) Low adsorption
When pipette tips with low adsorption pipette liquids with low surface tension, the liquid slides from the inner surface of the pipette tip very easily, leaving very little residual liquid in the pipette tip. Low adsorption tips can be applied to PCR, real-time PCR, clone sequencing, other nucleic acid processing technologies such as DNA and RNA, SDS-PAGE electrophoresis and other protein analysis methods, especially suitable for handling liquids with low surface tension, such as detergents and solvents.
The filter is a consumable designed to avoid cross-contamination, and is often used in experiments such as molecular biology, cytology, and virology, which helps reduce the possibility of forming smog and preventing aerosol pollution. For example, bacteria, viruses, volatile, corrosive or viscous chemicals. When pipetting samples, if the force is applied improperly, pipette tips with filter elements can prevent the liquid from entering the inside of the pipette, thereby protecting the parts of the pipette from contamination and corrosion. Therefore, the pipette with a filter is also an important tool for pipetting volatile and corrosive samples.
