Ensure a secure pipette tip seal with ClipTip

It all starts with our interlocking pipette technology.
Breakthrough Thermo Scientific ClipTip technology makes daily pipetting a totally new experience. The pipetting system locks tips firmly in place so they will not loosen or leak, regardless of application pressure.

What is ClipTip pipette technology?

Friction sealing systems

Pipettes with a friction seal system, rely on a user’s force to attach tips to the pipette, which varies from user to user.

Friction sealing systems
  • Increased tip attachment and ejection forces
  • Loose tips which can drop off or leak air
  • Decreased confidence in reproducibility of results
  • Premature tip cone wear

ClipTip system

ClipTip interlocking technology has an interface between the pipette fitting and tips that seal by clipping into place.

ClipTip System
  • Extremely low tip attachment and ejection forces
  • Complete seal on every channel
  • No loose tips
  • Reproducibility you can count on 

Available ClipTip Pipetting systems

Precise sample volumes in every channel regardless of touch-off

Generic tips (a) and ClipTip tips (b) after dispensing into two 96-well microplates. ClipTip pipette tips have an airtight seal in every channel and 68% less variation in dispensed liquid vs traditional friction based systems. The tip attachment force used was 3.8 kg. See our   application note for more details.

Tips only eject when YOU want them to

When ClipTip pipette tips are on, they are sealed and will not loosen. The ClipTip pipetting system remains sealed until you decide to eject tips, even in the most comprehensive applications, including multiple tip touches and mixing cycles.

Complete the system with ClipTip tips

ClipTip Pipette Tips provide a secure seal for every sample with a unique and innovative interlocking technology that ensures a complete seal on every channel with minimal tip attachment and ejection force.

These pipette tip racks are available in 4 sizes: small for use with ClipTip 20 and 50 pipette tips, medium for use with ClipTip 200 and 300 pipette tips, large for use with ClipTip 1000 and 1250 tips, and CT300 Ext rack for ClipTip 300 Ext length tips.

Adjustable tip spacing allows you to set the distance between tips simply by sliding the scale to expand and contract to your desired setting. The unique equalizer window links the tip spacing scale to the particular application.
