ART universal pipette tips

Tips that fit any pipette in your lab

ART-Universal-Pipette Tips

Thermo Scientific ART tips have been a trusted tool in the lab for decades. Only ART tips have a self-sealing barrier that seals in aerosols and liquids, eliminating contamination of pipettes and sample cross-contamination during pipetting. ART tips are available in specialty and non-filtered varieties, making it easier than ever to find a tip for every application and virtually any brand of pipette in your lab. ART tips deliver the quality, performance, and reliability you expect.

  • Low retention for maximum sample recovery
  • Self-sealing barrier to completely block contamination

ClipTip pipette tips

Worry-free pipetting


Thermo Scientific ClipTip pipette tips lock firmly in place on F1-ClipTip manual pipettes and E1-ClipTip electronic pipettes. The tips feature “clips” that lock the tips in place with a light touch for a secure seal on every channel. Tips will not loosen or fall off and will only release when ejected using minimal application pressure, making daily pipetting a new experience.

  • Low retention available in ClipTip 20-1250 96-format tips
  • Certified free of RNase, DNase, DNA, ATP, and endotoxins
  • Universal fit for virtually any brand of pipette
  • Color-coded for easy identification

SoftFit-L pipette tips


The SoftFit-L tip was designed for optimal performance with Rainin™ LTS pipettes. SoftFit-L tips deliver the accuracy and precision you expect and maintain the ergonomic benefits of the pipette with a positive-stop collar that reduces tip attachment and ejection forces.

  • Low retention to maximize sample delivery
  • Hinged rack provides easy one-hand access to tips
  • Color-coded inserts allow quick identification of tip volume
