Still hammering pipette tips instead of nailing your science?

publication date: Sep 18, 2019
author/source: INTEGRA Biosciences AG


INTEGRA Biosciences is dedicated to developing innovative solutions to improve pipetting in any application. It developed its GripTip pipette tips range to overcome the problems experienced by Tina – the star of a new INTEGRA comic – which are all too familiar to scientists working at the bench.

Universal pipette tips require hammering on to stretch the tip, often resulting in a suboptimal fit that can lead to loose, leaking and falling off tips. GripTips are designed to offer a perfect fit on INTEGRA pipettes, effortlessly snapping onto the tip fittings with low attachment and ejection forces. This ensures that all tips are at the same height, guaranteeing the perfect alignment and seal, even when performing side well touch offs. They span a wide volume range – from 0.5 to 5,000 µl – and are available in sterile, non-sterile and filtered options. The portfolio also includes a number of specialty GripTips, such as low retention tips for recovering viscous solutions, wide bore tips for cellular applications, short tips for improved ergonomics and targeting of small wells, and extra long tips for improved access to tubes.

This range is continuously being expanded to ensure that there are GripTips to meet the needs of every customer, for every application. The two latest tips include a 1,250 µl short tip – perfect for ergonomically pipetting large volumes, by eliminating the need to hold the pipette high over the bench, reducing the risk of RSI – and a 300 µl long tip that, at 102mm long, enables you to easily reach the bottom of standard 100 ml tubes. To aid tip selection, INTEGRA has launched its GripTip selector. Simply apply filters to see which tips are most suitable for your workflow in seconds.
