Liquid Handling

MIDSCI has a full line of liquid handling products including laboratory pipettes, pipette tips, pipettors, reagent reservoirs, aspiration systems, and pipette controllers.

Some liquid handling products are known to have safety issues and others are prone to errors that lead to poor results. 
  
Our liquid handling products keep in mind the basics, like price and quality, but also go one step further to solve or pre-empt these and other issues researchers (and even the planet) may face. 
  
For instance, the aspiration systems we stock are known for performance but also for safety. Our pipettor calibration service ensures reproducible results. We carry unbreakable transfer pipettes that avoid glass hazards. And we even have eco-friendly reagent reservoirs!

PR1MA™ Low Retention Graduated Pipette Tips

PR1MA™ Pipette Tips were meticulously designed using a specially formulated NoStick® resin to provide researchers with the highest level of liquid handling performance. PR1MA™ Pipette Tips were created with the belief that when it comes to liquid handling, less is more.

  • Less Fluid Retention
  • Less Sample Loss
  • Less Time Spent
  • Less Plastic Wasted

PR1MA™ Pipette Tips are produced under strict controls and an ISO9001 certified Quality Assurance process. They are manufactured with a state of the art fully automated tip manufacturing, filtering and inspecting which is incomparable in our industry.

LOW RETENTION
The PR1MA™ NoStick tips offer users an even higher degree of fluid confidence and control. The inner surface of our NoStick® tip is considerably more hydrophobic than standard industry tips enabling viscous fluids to be dispensed more completely. Less fluid retention. Less sample loss. PR1MA™ tips prove that less is more when it comes to liquid handling!

CLEAN LIQUID RELEASE
PR1MA™ tips are purposely designed for a much cleaner liquid release. Less time spent waiting for the final drop to fall from the end of a tip. Our thinner walls and more finely tapered tip construction will eliminate the need to touch off. Users will maintain complete fluid control working with smaller Vols, and yet will not have to compromise their pipetting accuracy or precision.

PR1MA™ Low Retention Graduated Barrier Pipette Tips

PR1MA™ Pipette Tips were meticulously designed using a specially formulated NoStick® resin to provide researchers with the highest level of liquid handling performance. PR1MA™ Pipette Tips were created with the belief that when it comes to liquid handling, less is more.

  • Less Fluid Retention
  • Less Sample Loss
  • Less Time Spent
  • Less Plastic Wasted

Filtered tips have a hydrophobic HDPE barrier that won't contaminate or impede airflow.

The Harvest 25mL ASPIR-8 Reservoir features tighter dimensions which make it the ideal reservoir for 8-channel pipettes. The 75mm width of the ASPIR-8 is specially designed to minimize reagent exposure and usage when an 8-channel pipette is used as opposed to the typical design for 12-channel pipettes.

Features:

  • Shorter size - conserves valuable reagents
  • Designed for 8-channel pipettes
  • RNase, DNase, & Pyrogen-free
  • Corner "bump-outs" prevent units from sticking together

Texan reagent reservoirs are reusable -- an environmentally sound alternative to disposable reagent reservoirs. Their extra-large capacity means fewer refills and time saved. The V-shaped basin is compatible with both eight- and twelve-place multiple pipettors with minimal reagent waste. Lids are removable -- attached with ball and socket hinges -- and latch tightly for secure storage of left-over reagents. With lids closed, Texan reagent reservoirs are stackable. A perimeter ridge on the lid prevents sliding. Construction is clear, chemical-resistant, autoclavable polypropylene. Molded graduation marks provide Vol indication at 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, and 150 mL.


Available sterile and non-sterile. Sterile reagent reservoirs are supplied in bags of 5, nonsterile in bags of 10, both within outer packages of 100.

Innovative Design Saves Space and Reduces Plastic Waste

The new "Green" Reagent Reservoirs from MIDSCI incorporate several innovative design features that reduce plastic waste, save storage space, and enhance performance. This reagent reservoir system consists of disposable, clear polystyrene inserts that fit within a rigid base. Because the skirt on the inserts has been eliminated, this significantly reduces the amount of plastic waste that is experienced when using standard one-piece reagent reservoirs.

  • Innovative design reduces plastic waste and saves space
  • Saves 75% in storage space
  • Easy-to-see, bold, black Vol graduations eliminate costly overpours
  • Pour-spout corners provide easy, spill-free pouring
  • Unique trough within a trough design for complete sample retrieval
  • 2nd reservoir can act as a lid to prevent evaporation and contamination

MIDSCIs multi-channel solution reservoirs are designed for use with all multichannel pipettes. Standard 4 channel, 8 channel, 12 channel and various special purpose pipettes are all compatible with these disposable, polystyrene reservoirs. To facilitate easy, dripless pour-off of unused reagents and solutions, all versions have indented spouts in each corner. Bottoms are formed with a sharply tapered V shape to minimize waste and reagent consumption.
 
Whether your application calls for bulk packaging, packs of 5, or individually wrapped reservoirs, MIDSCI reservoirs are supplied sterile and are packed in environmentally friendly packaging, within biodegradable bags and recycled cardboard boxes.
