The use of Labcon FlexTop™ Low Force tips, in combination with major brands of pipettors, reduces mounting and ejection forces to levels lower than accepted standards for women and men on all major pipettors.
Labcon FlexTop™ Low Force Tips are developed using our own in-house laboratory and tested on real pipettors. We don't use "pin" gauges or other unrealistic testing methods.
Certificates are on file with us by lot number for all test results and available from the certificates page.
Only 100% Medical Grade virgin polypropylene resins are used in FlexTop™ Tips. No recycled plastics or commodity grade resins.
Labcon is the only major pipet tip supplier to be registered by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
Actual test certificates are available on FlexTop™ tips for download from the certificates download page.
Like all Labcon products FlexTop™ tips are designed from the beginning with sustainability in mind. Our products go far beyond simple recycling to offer real Earth Friendly® solutions.
These pipet tips not only mount and eject with low force, they are made of clear pre-tested medical grade polypropylene and lot certified pure and free of DNase, RNase, ATP, and they are non-pyrogenic. These tips are also available with aerosol filters and low retention versions. And they are also available in validated sterilized versions unlike the non-validated “pre-sterilized” product available from others. Moreover, every rack is labeled with the product number, production lot, recycling code, expiration date, and effective volume range of the tips inside.
FlexTop™ pipet tips make your pipetting experience better. This video shows proper technique when pipetting with FlexTop™ tips. You never need to "jam" or repeatedly "pound" your pipettor to fit these tips onto major brands of pipettors.
The Eclipse® Pipet Tip Refill system from Labcon goes far beyond other reload systems to bring a complete refilling solution to your lab. With a simple lift, place, and snap, you can refill Labcon and other brands* of pipet tip racks with 18 different styles of tips. Eclipse® refill tips are lab certified Rnase/Dnase, ATP free, and Non-Pyrogenic. Sterile refills use a validated sterile process and include an expiration date on every pack.
The Eclipse® is a revolution in pipet tip refills. Far beyond simple recycle coding, the patent pending Eclipse® is a completely designed system with a Low Carbon footprint that includes the first ever use of recyclable bio-plastic (non-petroleum) resin in pipet tip refills. And the Eclipse® small footprint extends to the package, with a reclosable box that helps you maximize storage space in crowded labs.
