Simple loading with EZ-load tips
EZ-load tips use a proprietary sealing mechanism to create an airtight seal between the tip and pipetting core. Conventional pipette tips rely on either an O-ring coupling or deformation coupling between the tip and a pipette shaft. By contrast, EZ-load tips achieve a robust and reliable seal by clamping the tip head flange directly against an elastomer mat at the bottom of the core. Tips are conveniently arrayed in plastic collars for easy handling and insertion into the head.
The EZ-load tip technology has several key advantages:
- low, even tip load force
- no risk of O-ring degradation/failure
- fixed angle of tip engagement
- fixed tip length
- no space taken up on deck positions by tip boxes
