FlexTop™ Pipette Tips

The repetitive work of mounting and ejecting pipette tips can place significant demands on your body and place you more at risk for some types of repetitive strain injuries. FlexTop™ Low Force pipette tips are designed to fit onto most popular pipettes and eject with less than 3Kg of force. This force is shown to help reduce the risk of strain injury. By using these Low Force tips you don’t have to invest in special pipettes to gain all the advantages of low force pipetting.

All our FlexTop™ tips in racks are packed in our trademarked Teal or Purple racks. These racks are made of polypropylene and are autoclavable repeatedly. They have sturdy latch hinges that won't come apart like lesser quality tip racks and a special snap lock designed so that it will not catch on your gloves. You can also get FlexTop™ tips in resealable zip style bags, in Eclipse™ refills, and in racks that have been sterilized using a validated 10-6 process.

These ultimate tips feature a uniquely thin and flexible top that conforms to the pipette barrel unlike any other tips. They also include a non-beveled point that is so precise you can easily expel the tiniest amount of sample. And the top mounting is beveled to ensure that multichannel pipettes are easy to mount. FlexTop™ tips are made of clear 100% virgin polypropylene. Like all Labcon tips these tips are autoclavable along with their racks.


Flextop Tips

Endotoxin Endtoxin 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.
RNase/DNase 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
ATP 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.
Sterilization Validated Sterilization
Labcon products are sterilized by radiation sterilization within a dose range of 12-35 kGy. The dose range necessary for the stated sterility assurance level is continuously audited through quarterly bio-burden and sterility validation studies performed according to the ANSI/AAMI/ISO 11137 standard by an independent laboratory. This dosage is sufficient to guarantee a sterility assurance level of 10-6.
