What tips work with Rainin pipettes?
Rainin pipette tips fit most pipette brands, including a pipette tip for Rainin, Gilson, Eppendorf, Sartorius (BioHit), Thermo (Finn), and VWR pipettes.
Do universal tips fit Rainin LTS?
Rainin universal-fit tips provide outstanding performance for non-LTS Rainin pipettes and most other pipette brands, including Gilson, Eppendorf, Sartorious (BioHit), Thermo (Finn) and VWR.
What are LTS tips?
The LTS tips are thin walled and incorporate a small, well-defined seal area and a positive ‘stop’. This ‘stop’ lets you know exactly when the seal is made – so there is no need to ‘jam’ or pound the shaft onto the tip.
Are pipette tips Universal?
Universal pipette tips are disposable and designed to fit multichannel and single pipettes from many manufacturers. Compared to pipette specific tips, universal pipette tips offer high levels of performance and offer versatile uses with many pipette models.
What are low retention pipet tips?
Low retention tips, also called low binding tips, are pipette tips that have been modified to reduce the adhesion of DNA, enzymes, proteins, cells, as well as other viscous materials to the tip surface.
Do all pipette tips fit all pipettes?
In order for tips with hubs made of polypropylene, the diameter of the tip hub must be slightly larger than the barrel of the pipettor and the inside taper of the tip must also match the taper of the pipet barrel. If everyone conformed their pipettor barrel design to the same standard, there would never be a problem.
Do Eppendorf pipettes use universal tips?
200µl Yellow Tips Compatible With Eppendorf Pipettor Universal Tips are designed to fit a wide variety of single and multi-channel pipettors. These polypropylene tips are certified to be RNase-/DNase-free and nonpyrogenic.
How do you clean a Rainin pipette?
Open the pipette, immerse the parts in a detergent solution, such as Deconex® 12 Basic. Rinse well with distilled water and allow to dry. DNA can be eliminated by immersing pipette parts in at least 3% (w/v) sodium hypochlorite for at least 15 minutes (2,3). Rinse well with distilled water and allow to dry.
What is Z factor in pipette calibration?
The calibration of pipette is carried out by gravimetric method. When determining the volume of water, the accuracy of measurements is effected by ambient temperature, atmospheric pressure and relative humidity. These factors are usually combined to give the Z factor, used in calculation of volume of water.
Are all pipette tips the same?
Pipette tips come in three different types including non-sterile, pre-sterilized and filtered tips. The most commonly used type of pipette tip is non-sterile tips. They are often used in laboratory applications where sterility is not important to the experiment or test being performed.
Why are wide bore tips used?
Using a wide bore pipette tip for samples that have particles (e.g., environmental/food-derived samples, beads, etc.) can prevent blockage in the distal end of the tip during pipetting. The user can save time, repeat pipetting, and prevent contamination of sample or pipette shaft with use of a wide bore pipette tip.
