Non-self-sealing filter tips
from BRAND have a PE filter that is free from chemical additives. Permeability is controlled by the combination of pore size and filter length, so that no aerosols can reach the pipette shaft. These filters function with consistent reliability. On the other hand, liquids can pass very slowly should they accidentally contact the filter. Since the filter does not swell as in the case of self-sealing filter tips, the sample can be recovered from the filter by simply actuating the pipette's blow-out function or by centrifugation if necessary. This is clearly an important advantage of non-self-sealing filters, especially when working with valuable samples. As an added advantage, the absence of filter additives protects samples from this source of contamination.
Bulk packed in reclosable bags, non-sterile. All tips and filter tips are produced under supervised state-of-the-art clean-room conditions and automatically shrink-wrapped in reclosable bags and packaged in cardboard boxes. The batch number is printed on every bag.
