epT.I.P.S. 384 with SOFTattach technology – the key innovation
For the first time, micropipette tips have elastic forming grooves. They allow the tips to stretch as much as necessary to enable a perfect seal while operating forces are reduced to a minimum. Your benefits of using this perfectly coordinated system of pipette and tip are outstanding and reliable tip fit and tightness combined with reduced tip attachment and ejection forces. It couldn't be easier to perfectly hit all 384 wells as the new micropipette tips have an extremely fine tip shape, and an extraordinary coaxiality which enables a perfect tip alignment.
epT.I.P.S. 384 pipette tips for 384-well plates are the latest addition to the premium Eppendorf epT.I.P.S.® family. Both are optimally coordinated to Eppendorf pipettes and, of course, meet EN ISO 8655 requirements. Optimal wetting properties, high transparency and special, certified purity grades are the visible expression of our product and production philosophy.
Tip spacing - epT.I.P.S.® 384 versus epT.I.P.S.®
You want to easily and quickly fill a 24, 96 or even 384-well microplate? With the lightweight Eppendorf Research plus or electronic Xplorer plus 8 and 12-channel pipettes for 96-well plates and Eppendorf pipette tips epT.I.P.S. you get a higher volume of precision work done. To meet the demands of even higher throughput and smaller sample volumes, Eppendorf recently launched new Research plus and Xplorer plus 16 and 24-channel pipettes as well as epT.I.P.S. 384 to even pipette into 384-well plates. Working manually with 384-well plates requires a pipette-tip system that can handle tiny little wells precisely and efficiently.
Easily fill 96-well plates with 8 or 12-channel pipettes. The new 1,200 µL volume is ideal for filling deep well plates.
Choose epT.I.P.S.® for 9 mm spacing:
Choose the new 16 or 24-channel pipettes for applications in 384-well plates. Fill a complete row or column to start 16 or 24 reactions simultaneously in just one step.
Choose epT.I.P.S.® 384 for 4.5 mm spacing
NEW 16 and 24-channel pipettes and tips for 384-well applications
You work with 384-well plates and strive for more efficient manual pipetting methods? The new 16 and 24-channel pipettes from Eppendorf make working with 384-well plates convenient, ergonomic and safe.
› Tedious alternate well pipetting with 8 or 12-channel pipettes is a thing of the past
› Start 16 or 24 reactions simultaneously for equal starting conditions
› Protects from accidental well misidentification and repeating of experiments
› Processing one 384 instead of four 96 well plates improves efficiency as the number of pipetting steps is reduced by 50 %
Fatigue-free pipetting - Ergonomics
To sustainably support the health of our customers, Eppendorf introduced the PhysioCare Concept®. Our philosophy is to continuously listen to scientists’ needs while challenging the status quo of existing tools. Eppendorf has surpassed itself once again with the new system for 384-well plates by combining proven concepts with new innovations:
The already proven features, the spring-loaded tip cone and SOFTeject, were combined with a further innovation – epT.I.P.S. 384 with SOFTattach technology.
epT.I.P.S. 384® with SOFTattach technology for 16 and 24-channel pipettes
A key innovation: The innovative elastic forming grooves allow the tips to stretch as much as the shape of the tip cone predefines. Meanwhile, the tip attachment and ejection forces are greatly reduced. With this continued development of our Eppendorf PhysioCare Concept this system enables a perfect tip seal while operating forces are reduced to a minimum.
› Reliable tip fit and tightness
› Smooth and even tip attachment
› Tip attachment forces reduced by 40 % per cone compared to 8 and 12-channel pipettes
› Reduced ejection forces
› Perfect tip alignment by extraordinary coaxiality for safe plate maneuvering and liquid transfer
› Extremely fine tip shape to perfectly hit all 384 wells
Spring-loaded tip cone for reliable tip fit and low tip attachment forces
The spring-loaded tip cone saves your energy and time. With haptic feedback there is no need for rocking and banging. It indicates a perfect and reliable tip fit. Just one gentle push-down until you receive the haptic feedback and you are done. The spring limits the attachment forces and at the same time guarantees a reproducible and safe tip fit. It provides increased user to user reproducibility for more uniform results among members of the lab. All Eppendorf microliter pipettes up to 1,000 µL are equipped with this spring-loaded tip cone.
SOFTeject reduces tip ejection forces by 50 %
During a single tip ejection stroke, the outside tips eject before the inside tips. You just slightly press the ejection button once, and automatically the tips are ejected successively. You will not notice that at all. But what you will notice is that this technology reduces tip ejection forces by 50 %. Enjoy it in all Eppendorf multi-channel pipettes.
