New, ultra-hydrophobic Low Retention Pipette Tips and Filter Tips from BRAND. Through a patented surface treatment, the polypropylene of the tips becomes extremely liquid repellent which reduces costly sample loss during pipetting to a minimum. Since the tip is not coated during the production process there is no sample contamination caused by related impurities. The Low Retention Tips from BRAND are ideal for biological samples that contain detergents such as Triton® X-100, SDS, Tween, etc. The new surface is very resistant to chemicals and thus allows to work with many solvents without loss of quality.
The high transparency of the tips remains unchanged by the treatment. The tips are autoclavable at 121 °C (20 min) without damaging the material properties!
BRAND pipette- and filter tips are manufactured of specially selected transparent PP types, free from the additives di- (2-hydroxyethyl) methyldodecylammonium (DiHEMDA) and 9-octadecenamide (oleamide) and are CE-marked according to IVD-directive 98/79 EC.
Available rack-packed in various packaging types, e.g. Tip-Box N or as space-saving Tip-StackTM refill systems, either non-sterile or BIO-CERT® quality.
