Take a GRIP on your pipetting projects.
Application Area:Tissue culture
"These grip tips do exactly what they are named for; they grip the pipette and make a perfect seal for accurate and flawless pipetting. These tips can be used for all the pipettes from INTEGRA Biosciences, from the manual Evolve pipettes to the Voyager multi-channel adjustable tip spacing pipettes. Every time, with every INTEGRA pipette, the tips go on easy, stay on and pipette accurately. They have a greener option for (sterile) refills once you have their pipette tip boxes which are super easy to use as well."

Great grips with these tips
Application Area:Diluting and dispensing samples in assays
"Integra’s GripTips are excellent in quality! They snap onto the pipettes with a good lock that keep them from falling out or creating inaccuracies in volume due to an air gap between the pipette and the tip. They are less prone to breaking and bending than the other tips that our lab uses from a different manufacturer. I have never experienced having one break or bend when performing Pre-PCR amplification with the purple 20 uL and yellow 125 uL tips, and when using the green 300 uL tips for antibody assays. The tips are made out of a good material, and they feel different when they come into contact with the filter plates used for antibody assays. Unlike the other tips, I have not had any experience with them accidentally puncturing holes in the filter plates. I feel like it may be due to the fact that these tips are thicker (therefore, the force is distributed over more surface area), and this thickness also makes them very sturdy. The only downside is that the 300 uL tips don’t come in STERILE, FILTERED refills (as of yet). I go through AT LEAST one rack per day, and each box only comes with 5 racks (that’s only 5 days = 1 work week). I feel like this generates a lot of waste, and can also get very expensive in the long run compared to the other tips we use in the lab (since I constantly have to order more)."

Good reliable tips and performance.
Application Area:ELISA assays
"The INTEGRA tips come packaged in racks that work exactly with the multi-channel INTEGRA pipettes. We have never had a problem with contamination or fit. It is convenient that the required tip to perform with the multi-channel unit is priced competitively."
The GripTips together with VIAFLO, VOYAGER and EVOLVE pipettes from INTEGRA form an integral system. Pipette tip and pipette were designed to fit perfectly together. As a result, the loading and attachment forces of the tips could be reduced to minimize wrist related stresses. In addition, the system provides a perfect tip sealing and reliably prevents tips from accidently falling off during pipetting. Consistent and safe pipetting guaranteed! Using Low Retention GripTips from INTEGRAwith heightened hydrophobic properties prevents low surface tension samples from spreading out at the inner wall of the tips for a maximum liquid recovery.
Available in five volumes (12.5 µl to 5000 µl) GripTips come in bulk or stackable boxes (non-sterile, sterile and filtered) featuring colour-coded inserts that correspond to the volume ranges of the INTEGRA pipettes. The 12.5 µl and 125 µl GripTips come in 384-fold configuration, so the same tips and boxes can be used with 16-channel pipettes as well.
The GREEN CHOICE is an environmentally friendly packaging of GripTips. Each GREEN CHOICE contains five GripTip inserts of non-sterile or pre-sterilized GripTips to refill the current tip boxes.
