Tip Top™ Blood Tube Dispenser
Tip Top® is a convenient alternative to pipetting from an open blood tube, just tilt the tube and squeeze to dispense one drop. And Tip Top® is safe. You don't need to pipet out of the tube so spillage is reduced along with potential exposure to pathogens. Just carefully remove the stopper and replace with Tip Top®.
Tip Top® also helps prevent evaporation, with an available flexible cap to cover the Tip Top® opening so you can store samples in the refrigerator.
Safe Blood Dispensing
The Tip Top® dispenser cap can be used with almost any liquid. Made from chemically resistant polyethylene they can dispense serum, reagents, plasma, whole blood and CSF. The integral porous polyethylene filter efficiently separates serum and can also be used as a reagent blender.
Tip Top® dispenser caps are available in resealable medical grade packaging.
The Tip Top® is a disposable cone shaped cap available in two sizes that fit all standard 13 or 16mm blood collection tubes. A small opening allows you to dispense a sample without removing the Tip Top® cap so you can prepare smears on slides or dispense into reagent wells or microcentrifuge tubes safely. Inside the tip of the Tip Top® is an integral porous filter that removes fibrin from the blood sample allowing for a perfect slide smear.
Tip Top® caps are easy to use. Making the tedious job of making blood smears simple and greatly improving lab safety.
Available in resealable non-sterile bulk bags.
|Endotoxin Free (Non pyrogenic)
Product samples are exposed to endotoxin-free water and the resulting extraction fluid is tested for contamination using the kinetic turbidimetric Limulus Amoebocyte Lysate (LAL) assay protocol and USP guidelines. All products tested must display less than 0.05 EU/ml to be certified free of endotoxin.
|Nuclease Free (RNase/DNase)
Product samples are exposed to nuclease-free water and the resulting extraction fluid is tested for nuclease activity on commercially available 7.5 kb Poly(A) tailed RNA (1µg) and HindIII-digested DNA (1µg) with a one hour 37°C incubation in appropriate buffers. Results are visualized on an agarose gel with appropriate positive and negative controls. Extraction fluid samples must show no degradation of the nucleic acids by the extraction fluid has occurred for the product to be certified as RNase-free and DNase-free
|Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)
Product sample surfaces are tested for the presence of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) using a controlled bioluminescence reaction to detect contamination. Luminescence data is compared to results generated by ATP-free surfaces and surfaces with known amounts of ATP as a positive control. The relative light units result must indicate less than 2 X 10-12 mg/µl of ATP for the product to be certified as ATP free.
