Thermo Fisher launches ClipTip pipetting system
An easy pipette to hold on to your tips!
Thermo Fisher Scientific recently introduced the new Thermo Scientific F1-ClipTip pipetting system, enabling users to deliver consistent, reproducible pipetting with higher-quality results. This ClipTip interlocking technology locks tips securely into place to deliver an airtight seal on every channel.
"Researchers are constantly challenged with pipette tips that leak air, loosen or fall off in the middle of their protocols, ruining or contaminating the assay," said Mr Raymond Mercier, liquid transfer product director of Thermo Fisher. "Our new F1-ClipTip pipetting system's breakthrough interlocking design securely locks tips in place, which increases reproducibility, reduces force required to attach the tips and ensures the best possible accuracy and precision."
Available for both single and multichannel pipettes, the Thermo Scientific F1-ClipTip pipetting system is simple but powerful. With minimal force, each tip is clipped securely on the F1-ClipTip pipette using a patented three-interlocking clip design. The pipette and tip form a complete seal to secure the sample volume in each tip for enhanced accuracy and precision. Additional features such as an ergonomic design, comparatively lightweight in nature, an adjustable 120° finger rest, patented super blow-out, patented soft-touch tip ejection and a volume lock adjustment make the pipette truly user friendly.
