Pipette Tip Functionalities
Also referred to as a pipet tip, pipette tips are necessary for most pipettes and pipettors to reduce contamination. Complementary to the range of pipettors available, pipette tips come in different shapes, sizes, and materials. Most pipette tips are made of polypropylene and are disposable. Others are made of glass to deal with harsher chemicals, specialized for other tasks like gel loading or to be used with an automated pipetting system. Other common forms are filter tips, which are used to minimize the risk of cross-contamination.
