Robotic Pipette Tips
Robotic pipette tips are used with a pipetting robot to automate the pipetting process in high-volume labs. Most tips are constructed of polypropylene and are disposable or recyclable. Tips are prepackaged in racks of 96 or 384 tips to facilitate processing and work with a particular robotic pipette system. Sterile tips are used for sensitive testing, cleanrooms, or environments with rigorous environmental requirements. Non-sterile tips are used for applications with less rigorous environmental requirements. Non-pyrogenic and RNase-, DNase-, and DNA-free styles are often used when pipetting biological samples. Other features to consider when selecting robotic pipette tips include the tip volume capacity, material construction, and application.
