Filter pipette tips
These filter tips are the face of pipetting technology. Filter pipette tips are also known as aerosol barrier tips as they are equipped with a filter inside the proximal part of the pipette tip, which protects the pipette from aerosols and draws viscous or volatile samples into the shaft. This not only protects the pipette from physical damage that might otherwise be caused but also protects against cross-contamination between samples. These filter pipette tips are ideal for PCR, qPCR and pipetting of sensitive samples.
Filter pipette tips are a perfect choice to use when training new people who are using a pipettor for the first time. The filter inside these tips will prevent over-aspiration of sample into the pipettor shaft, which will damage the pipettor and lead to high costs. Whether you are operating a university lab filled with students who have never aspirated a pipette before or a lab environment training new technicians in proper technique, filter tips are a cost-effective tool that can be used as a preventative measure to protect the longevity of your pipettes.
Any lab that uses air displacement pipettes puts their samples at risk of carryover contamination. Filtered pipet tips eliminate this possibility, preventing subsequent samples from being potentially exposed to aerosols during dispensing. As sample precision and sensitivity increase more and more, filter pipette tips are becoming more and more common in the laboratory environment.
Pipette filter tips are made with medical-grade plastic and a robotically inserted 10 µm filter to provide precision and ensure protection when handling any sample. Sophisticated ZAP technology prevents contamination and completely prevents sample carryover. These tips are innovative and offer the highest quality sample handling. The accuracy of pipette filter tips is second to none. Pipette filter tips are required to provide the most accurate pipetting results. These sterile pipette filter tips come in a variety of forms including:
- ultra fine tip
- extended length
- Low Retention Wide Bore

OneTouch Filter Tips Overview:
Filters for pipette tips offer a liquid sealing barrier without contaminants or additives that can cause problems in PCR, analytical or molecular methodology and protocol.
Innovative: Pipetting like you’ve never felt before A revolutionary tip made from two resins, OneTouch tips provide a colour-coded soft top neck and ultra-clear rigid polypropylene barrel.
Ergonomic – The soft tip requires less pressure to create an optimal seal. The tips reduce the necessary sealing and reciprocal ejection force felt with traditional single resin polypropylene tips. The tips are excellent for multichannel pipettes and reduce pipette wear.
Protection – Seals out aerosols and liquid contaminants while preventing cross-contamination and sample carryover.
Improved Accuracy – Design is optimized for maximum consistency in airflow, form, fit, and function over a broad spectrum of pipetting volumes
