Sterile vs Non Sterile Pipette Tips

Know the Difference between Sterile and Non-Sterile Pipette Tips

Pipetting accuracy is only useful when pipette tips are guaranteed to not leach biological and chemical contaminants into samples.

Reaction conditions and experimental results can be compromised by organic and non-organic contaminants unknowingly introduced to liquid samples by non-certified pipette tips.

Contaminants can be present as ingredients in certain tip-plastic mixtures, or they might adhere to pipette tips during any stage of the tip molding and packaging process in non-cleanroom environments.

Why use BioClean pipette tips?

Contaminants on pipette tips can inflict adverse, unpredictable effects on enzyme activity and longevity, molecular interaction, spectrophotometric and chromatographic analysis, and more. Simply speaking, a non-sterile tip brings with it a high likelihood of carrying contaminants versus using a sterile pipette tip to ensure guaranteed results.

Learn how BioClean tips are guaranteed to be free of bio-active components and external contaminants.

Manufactured under 100K cleanroom conditions, Rainin BioClean tips are rigorously tested both in-house and by external labs to produce 100% confidence in results obtained through their use.
