ZAP™ Aerosol Barrier Pipette Tips
ZAP™ Aerosol Filter Pipette Tips from Labcon set a higher standard for your lab than ordinary filter pipette Tips. Our aerosol Tips provide you with complete protection from sample carry-over, Incorporating a patented filter that is made from high molecular weight polyethylene. The filters allow the pipettor to draw by venting through a tortuous sponge-like pathway. The pores in this pathway have an average size of 10µm, so even radionucleotides are captured before reaching the pipettor barrel.
All our ZAP™ Tips in racks are packed in our trademarked Teal or Purple racks. These racks are made of polypropylene and are autoclavable repeatedly. They have sturdy latch hinges that won't come apart like lesser quality tip racks and a special snap lock designed so that it will not catch on your gloves. You can also get ZAP™ in Eclipse™ UNO refills.
ZAP™ Aerosol Filter Pipette Tips have been proven in studies to block aerosol contamination. Unlike some leading brands of self sealing aerosol resistent pipet tips they have no cellulose gum , toluene solvent, or colored dyes in the filter to mix with and contaminate your sample. Also, unlike self sealing aerosol tips ZAP™ Tips can be autoclaved in a steam autoclave. And they will not wick fluids like cellulose filled aerosol resistent tips so you don't have to worry about how you hold your pipettor.
Each style of ZAP™ Tips is designed from the beginning to fit precisely the range of pipettors listed in the fit charts. We carefully inspect the fitting with the actual pipettors, not just with measuring gauges. This means you won’t have to worry about leaking Tips and you don’t have to use extra force to mount these Tips.
ZAP™ tips feature a pure 10µm pore size patented filter without any dyes or additives. The pores on this filter are 100% smaller than those in other aerosol tip brands. A smaller pore guarantees that your pipettor barrel will be kept clean of DNA, radionucleotides, and other contaminants. And this filter works to block fluids without any contaminants in the filter so you never have to worry that your work will be spoiled if your sample contacts the filter.
|Endotoxin Free (Non pyrogenic)
Product samples are exposed to endotoxin-free water and the resulting extraction fluid is tested for contamination using the kinetic turbidimetric Limulus Amoebocyte Lysate (LAL) assay protocol and USP guidelines. All products tested must display less than 0.05 EU/ml to be certified free of endotoxin.
|Nuclease Free (RNase/DNase)
Product samples are exposed to nuclease-free water and the resulting extraction fluid is tested for nuclease activity on commercially available 7.5 kb Poly(A) tailed RNA (1µg) and HindIII-digested DNA (1µg) with a one hour 37°C incubation in appropriate buffers. Results are visualized on an agarose gel with appropriate positive and negative controls. Extraction fluid samples must show no degradation of the nucleic acids by the extraction fluid has occurred for the product to be certified as RNase-free and DNase-free
|Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)
Product sample surfaces are tested for the presence of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) using a controlled bioluminescence reaction to detect contamination. Luminescence data is compared to results generated by ATP-free surfaces and surfaces with known amounts of ATP as a positive control. The relative light units result must indicate less than 2 X 10-12 mg/µl of ATP for the product to be certified as ATP free.
|DNA Free (Human)
To confirm the freedom from DNA amplification products are examined by Agarose gel electrophoresis with appropriate positive and negative controls. PCR reactions using extraction fluid must show no PCR- amplified product compared to a positive control containing one picogram of human genomic DNA for the product to be certified as DNA-free.
Product samples are tested and certified to be free of detectable Protease. Extraction fluid is tested for the presence of protease activity by examining test protein degradation in the extraction fluid compared to a negative control and positive control reactions supplemented with 2 nanograms of Proteinase K or Trypsin.
|Heavy Metals Free
Heavy metals have been tested for using the prescribed USP method and confirmed to have levels lower than 1 part per million (1ppm)
Labcon products are sterilized by radiation sterilization within a dose range of 12-35 kGy. The dose range necessary for the stated sterility assurance level is continuously audited through quarterly bio-burden and sterility validation studies performed according to the ANSI/AAMI/ISO 11137 standard by an independent laboratory. This dosage is sufficient to guarantee a sterility assurance level of 10-6.

ZAP™ Aerosol Tip Rack
The same 96 rack that are extremely durable and an ergonomic snap latch that won't catch gloves. Smooth rounded edges and reinforced seal make these racks durable additions to your lab. Strong enough to be autoclaved many times. The separate rack insert includes a beveled top and extra sturdy surface for multi-channel pipetting. A vent in the rack sides allows steam autoclaving to be more efficient and assures your tips are sterile.
