Good value!
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area: PCR analysis

"Easy to use. Good customer service. Low retention. However, if very minimal retention is desired I would recommend the extra long filter tip from the same company."

  • Application Area:Molecular cloning

"I didn't like the tip boxes. The static from the tips made the racks difficult to load in these tiny boxes that are flimsy and won't stay open on their own."

Affordable quality tips
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Analyze monoamines, metabolites, mRNA gene expression in tissue

"These are easy to use tips that worked great for consistently dispensing low volumes (2 microliters). They fit Fisherbrand elite pipettes pretty well. The only caveat was that when applying pressure/ a bit of force when putting the tip on the pipette, sometimes the other tips in the box "jumped". Their sales team/ customer service representatives were very responsive and helpful."

  • Application Area:Analyze metabolites in small volumes of whole blood.

"As the Director of Research and Development at a small start up I am always looking for ways to keep our lab costs down with out sacrificing the quality of our results. We work with standards that measure in the nanogram to picogram range and accuracy and precision are a must. These tips passed my personal quality control assays and our company will continue to use them."

"Thanks to X-Resin the Biotix 10µL Extended Length Low Retention Filter Tips had an unbeatable performance. The fit to our pipettes is without problem. The overall design is straight (no 'banana') and perfect for MCH (mean corpuscular hemoglobin) applications!"

The low retention tips are cheap and work fine, but not well for volumes below 2-3µL
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:General pipeting

"The fact that the tips are low retention is great for not having samples stick to the sides of the tip. When used with Rainin LTS pipets, the FlexFit seal nullifies one advantage of using official LTS tips from Rainin, which is low tip ejection force. This could be mitigated by not pressing down as hard on the tip as Biotix trains people to do, but it can result in an inconsistent seal, especially with multichannel pipets. There is also a little more inconsistency in the shape of the tip compared to Rainin LTS tips, which becomes more obvious when used with multichannel pipets. My primary complaint is that when pipetting low volumes (less than 2-3µL), there seems to be inaccuracy as the vacuum created by the air displacement must overcome greater resistance due to the low retention characteristics. If a good price can be found on the tips, then I would recommend Biotix Low Retention Filter Tips featuring X-Resin® for pipetting volumes from 3-20µL."

Great tips/ boxes still need some work....
Rating: 3.3

  • Application Area:Small volume measurements

"Biotix 10µL Low Retention Filter Tips featuring X-Resin® are awesome. After a review of their products they have actually changed the color of the inserts so that you can easily distinguish the size of the tip. Unfortunately, the boxes are still a bit unstable. Hopefully this will be addressed in the future."

New cost cutting design has sacrificed what used to be a good product
Rating: 2.7

  • Application Area:Cell culture in vitro assays.

"About 6 months ago, I left a glowing review for this product. Unfortunately, recent changes have lead me to change my mind. The old version of Biotix were fantastic however the product was recently redesigned. A flimsier plastic has replaced the material for the lid and box and now the lid falls off easily spilling the tips everywhere. The plastic tip holder inside the box is also weakly supported so picking up one tip can lift the whole box. The bottom line is that Biotix has made the decision to cut corners on their product quality in order to save money. It's very frustrating that they would change what used to be a great product"

Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Biochemistry, Moleculer lab

"Biotix Manual filter tips can be used with many kinds of pipettors. The filter tips are popular with customers from universities and hospitals because of the excellent quality (IVE certificated ) . Sometimes, users complained that the filter dropped down after autoclave. I believe more customer will switch to use Biotix."

"Definite value for money. Better priced than other competitors. The low retention tips were excellent for virus manipulation and worked true to its low retention ability, with little loss of virus material during aliquots."

Great tips... not the best rack.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Small volume liquid handling

"These tips are great. The Resin clearly lets you know when you have drawn up too much sample. The value for the price is good. There is very little retention in the tip. The only downside to these tips are the racks. They are pretty unstable and the lids are hard to take on and off. While environmentally friendly, they could be a bit more stable as most labs do recycle these days."

Manufacturer's Response

Susan, thank you for your time and feedback. We’re glad to hear you’re benefitting from our high performance resin. It’s clear you recognize our dedication to our environment as we developed a rack using nearly 40% less plastic than competitor racks. Though our racks are lightweight, they are purposefully designed with a larger base footprint than the rack cover to avoid rack tip-over. The lids are engineered to be both removable and re-attachable. We appreciate your time and would like to understand more about your issue. Please email info@biotix so we can learn more and address your needs. We value our customers and strive for ultimate customer satisfaction.

Manufacturer's Response

Thanks for the great feedback! While we have not made a formal announcement yet, we are happy to share that we are currently adding color-coded snap cards to our new racks. This is a rolling change as inventory moves out, but you should start seeing new colors as well as the new rack soon! The new rack is clear so you can visually see the tip size and inkjet lettering on the top cover states the volume, reorder part number, and lot number for traceability. The new color coded inserts make tip identification even easier: Blue inserts for large tips, green for 300ul and 250ul (xTIP for Rainin LTS), yellow for 200ul, and red for small tips In addition, the new rack has a stable SBS footprint, is “nestable” and has a removable/hinged lid for easy access. The new Biotix rack has even less plastic than before, is 100% recyclable, and can be reused (autoclave up to 100 times) as a manual/automation 96-well reservoir. Stay tuned for more!
