ShaftGard 10 µL Pipette Tips

Prevent Cross-Contamination

A ShaftGard™ 10 µL universal-fit pipette tip shields the end of the pipette, protecting it from cross-contamination from tubes and other vessel edges. This reduces the need to decontaminate or sterilize the shaft and tip ejector when working with biological, radioactive or other critical samples. ShaftGard tips are longer than standard 10 microliter pipette tips for easier access into microcentrifuge and PCR tubes. Available as filtered and non-filtered, sterilized and non-sterilized.

Advantages of ShaftGard 10 µL Pipette Tips

10 uL pipette tips

Shaft and Tip Ejector Protection

ShaftGard™ 10 uL pipette tips enclose the pipette's tip ejector and shaft, protecting it from accidental contamination and reducing the need to sterilize the tip ejector when working with critical samples. ShaftGard tips are longer than standard micro-10 tips for easier access into microcentrifuge and PCR tubes. Use with 2 and 10 μL pipettes with universal, conical shafts.

Shaftgard pipette tips

Reduce Pipette Contamination

ShaftGard™ tips reduce contamination by enclosing the tip shaft and ejector. The tip is ejected by pressing on the “shoulder” inside the tip – affording further protection against contamination.

10 uL pipette tips


FinePoint™ tips taper to a fine orifice diameter. Their slender design, in combination with thin, flexible walls, creates an exceptionally supple tip that assists in sample touch-off. The narrow orifice aperture and thin wall surrounding the orifice provides minimal surface area for residual sample to adhere to during sample dispensing. FinePoint tips discharge completely for optimal pipetting accuracy.
