SafetySpace™ Filter Tips leave more space between the sample and the filter than conventional
filter tips. This allows pipetting any type of liquid or using any pipetting technique without
the risk of the precious sample absorbing into the filter. In effect, this secures 100% sample
recovery and thus greater accuracy.
The safety space feature is particularly useful in:
• pipetting foaming liquids such as buffers and proteins
• pipetting solvents
• multiple dispensing functions of electronic pipettes
• reverse pipetting
• any other application requiring extra space in the tip
The tips are made of virgin polypropylene and the filter of polyethylene without 'self-sealing' additives to avoid any interference with the sample and the results. The filter barrier helps protect against cross-contamination of the sample and/or the pipette and reduces the need for pipette maintenance. The filter tips are available in multiple volumes from 10 µl to 1200 µl and are packed in colour coded single tray racks. They are DNase, RNase and endotoxin free certified and pre-sterilised.
The filter barrier and the certified purity makes the filter tips ideal for:
• molecular biology
• cell culture applications
• radioactive work
