A pipette tip is a laboratory tool commonly used in chemistry, biology and medicine to transport a measured volume of liquid, often as a media dispenser. Pipette tips are used with pipettes to speed processing and reduce cross-contamination. Pipette tips are attached with pipette for taking and transferring liquid. Pipette tips are available in a variety of materials and styles.

What are the types of pipette tips?

Popular pipette tips are universal pipette tips, filter tips,  low retention pipette tips and robotic conductive pipette tips

Universal pipette tip is widely used in labs. In general laboratories, universal pipette tips will be purchased, which are basically suitable for all pipetting. This is the most economical and cost-effective type of pipette tips.

Filter pipette tip is often used in experiments such as molecular biology, cytology, and virology. Filter pipette tip can be used to protect the pipette, prevent liquid back sucking, and avoid cross-contamination during the experiment. However, filter pipette tip is a bit more expensive than universal pipette tips.

Low retention pipette tip is generally used in experiments that require high-sensitive and precious samples or reagents that are. Low retention pipette tip can reduce sample loss and improve recovery.

Robotic conductive pipette tips can be used in a fully automatic enzyme-free workstation and an automatic sampling system with antistatic function, mainly used for liquid distribution and transfer;


How to choose pipette tips?

People are usually very cautious when buying pipettes. However, when buying pipette tips, we don't pay enough attention to them. In fact, the pipette tip is also a key factor that affects the results of the experiment, and even also affects the life of the pipette. Therefore, the purchase of pipette tips is also very important.

The first consideration when thinking about which pipette tips to choose is precision and accuracy. The accuracy of pipette can be affected if the pipette tip does not fit particular pipette properly. If there is a poor seal between your pipette barrel and pipette tip, then the drawn-in air can escape and the correct volume of liquid is not aspirated.



(Servicebio pipette tips can be Adapted most brands of micropipettes on the market  such as Eppendorf, Thermo, Brand, Gilson, Rainin and Dragon, etc. Servicebio pipette tips are designed to fit securely and tightly around all pipette barrels.


You get what you pay for. Invest in good quality pipette tips that have been specifically developed for optimal performance.


What are the safety precautions for using pipette tips?

The basic pipette tip requires applied suction to draw up a solution. In the past, chemists commonly used the pipette tip like a straw. Put their mouth on the open upper end and use lung power to suck up the solution at the other end, which is now considered a definite safety hazard. The danger is that you can draw up hazardous liquids into your mouth, or inhale potentially harmful fumes.

Maintain the correct posture when pipetting. Do not hold the pipette tip tightly at all times. Change hands frequently if possible.

Regularly check the sealing condition of the pipette tip. Once it is found that the seal is broken, it must be replaced in time.

Calibrate the pipette tip 1or 2 times a year.

For most pipette tips, the piston should be coated with lubricating oil before use and after a period of use to maintain the seal.
