Beckman Coulter's new pipette tips are made with an ultra-clear resin to heighten sample visibility and designed for use on the company’s Biomek liquid handling platforms. Multichannel tips are packaged in new cases that simplify handling and storage and facilitate recycling.
Overall, 31 Biomek Tips will be made with the new clear resin. Available in maximum volumes ranging from 20 to 1000 µL, the non-conductive tips are certified to be free of RNase/DNase and are offered in sterile, sterile-with-barrier, and non-sterile versions. Clear Biomek Tips contain no radiation-blocking resin additives and are processed using efficient and effective ethylene oxide sterilization.
The newly-designed multichannel tip case, which can be completely recycled, is easy-to-open, easy-to-close, printed with biodegradable dyes and made using 30 percent less source materials. The packaging can be flattened for recycling. A 35 percent reduction in size reduces storage requirements and materials usage, resulting in a product that is economically and environmentally efficient to ship.
Each newly designed multichannel tip case holds 10 racks of AP96 or AP384 tips for use with Biomek 3000 tools or with the 96- or 384-multichannel heads used on Biomek FXP and Biomek NXP liquid handlers.
