Conversion of the Pipette Tip Product Range
Conversion of the Pipette Tip Product Range
We offer an extensive range of certified and geometrically optimised pipette tips with and without filters for all common pipettes. The hydrophobic filter material prevents the aerosol, which is formed when pipetting, from contaminating the pipette. Our pipette tips are characterised by their high transparency and accuracy. Compliance according to DIN EN ISO 8655 is tested with the most common pipettes. The pipette tips are available in a bag, box or economical refill system, in three purity grades and as a low retention version.

The following table shows the compatibilities of all common pipettes with our range of pipette tips.
When critical samples (e.g. templates for PCR analysis) have to be completely transferred.
The improved processing properties of the low retention pipette tips mean that a smaller residual volume remains in the syringe, so a more even and more complete transfer of liquid can be achieved. This is important in particular when handling small amounts of nucleic acid (e.g. in the case of PCR and qPCR) when the focus is on the precision of the sample transfer and the reproducibility of the results.
If you are aiming to save reagent costs.
Low retention pipette tips offer the advantage that as a result of the improved processing properties expensive reagents (such as enzyme solutions or growth factors) can be more efficiently transferred and less pipette loss occurs, thereby saving money.
When highly viscous liquids or those which contain detergents have to be pipetted.
The use of low retention pipette tips leads to significantly reduced development of foam when pipetting. The improved processing properties also achieve a significantly improved pipettability of highly viscous liquids.
Our filter tips are offered exclusively in the certified qualities 'PCR Performance Tested' or Biosphere® plus', so it is not necessary to autoclave these tips. Filter tips should not be autoclaved as the filter structure can change, which means the functionality of the filter is no longer ensured.
The economical Tip StackPack refill system is made up of fed-in 96-tip trays which are stacked in one another and can simply be transferred into a Tip SystemBox for use. This reduces the amount of packaging and waste and the storage space required by more than 50%.
Our pipette tips are tested for their conformity/accuracy in accordance with ISO 8655 using the corresponding pipette types and brands. This standard is also used by the pipette manufacturers as the basis for the verification of the combination of pipettes and pipette tips. This means that our tips can also be used to pipette even the smallest volumes with a high degree of accuracy.
If contamination of the samples and the pipettes through aerosols (e.g. acids), biomolecules (e.g. RNA or DNA) or accidental over-pipetting needs to be avoided. This is particularly important in the case of critical applications such as PCR reactions.
To offer you the highest accuracy and precision even with very small volumes, Sarstedt tips, in combination with the pipettes of market leading manufacturers, are regularly subjected to comprehensive conformity tests in accordance with the international test standard ISO 8655, and Deutsche Eichordnung which was replaced by Deutsche Mess- und Eichverordnung (German Weights and Measures Regulations) and came into effect 1 January 2015.
Both regulations provide for a Declaration of Conformity to be issued by the manufacturer of volume measuring instruments made of glass or plastic (Class A/AS only) and volume measuring instruments with a piston used in areas that are governed by statutory provisions.
The conversion from Deutsche Eichordnung to Deutsche Mess- und Eichverordnung does not have any effect on applicable standards or the respective test methods. The only change involved is the identification symbol.
Formerly, this symbol consisted of the letter “H“ and the manufacturer’s logo, while Deutsche Mess- und Eichverordnung has now defined “DE-M“ as the new conformity symbol.
Conformity testing of pipette tips is confirmed by the Declaration of Conformity, the label marking, and in our brochures. Conversion to the new identification symbol will be conducted successively.
