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!

There is much more to liquid handling than measuring and transferring samples from one container to another. Using the right instruments should:

  • Reduce waste
  • Eliminate contamination
  • Save storage space
  • Maximize sample delivery
  • Enhance comfort for the user
  • Reduce costs

At MIDSCI, we carry a full line of pipette tips, pipettors and accessories, including:

PR1MA Pipette Tips: Offers maximum sample volume recovery in aspiration and dispensing applications throughout the PCR, qPCR, Western, ELISA and other application processes. 

Alphapette: The #1 pipettor for sub-microliter pipetting and eco-friendly reagent reservoirs that reduces plastic waste and saves storage space, without sacrificing performance.

LTS Tips: A great quality and more cost effective option, compared to others on the market. Filter versions are available in racked and refill. Non-filter versions are available in racked, racked and sterile, refill, and in bulk.

“Purple Racked Tips,” a solution that comes in almost any configuration you can imagine. The only differences in the products we carry are the catalog number and color. Our racks are teal. 

MIDSCI can help you select other liquid handling products, including: pipettors, gel loading tips, wide boar tips, 5 mL and 10 mL tips, Expell Plus tips, One Touch Tips (filter and non-filter), repeat pipettors, and Combi-Syringe tips. For performing repeat pipetting under 1 mL, we recommend electronic pipettors.

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.

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.

TPP Serologicals were uniquely designed to be shorter and more ergonomic to permit access into vessels of all shapes and sizes, while providing the end user significant advantages in liquid handing and overall usage. The single piece construction of TPP serologicals 1-25mLs eliminate media drip post-aspiration.

  
Key features:
Standard serological pipettes: TPP 1mL, 2mL, 5mL, 10mL & 25mL Serologicals

  • Accurate Vol 1 - 25 ml
  • Highly visible, bidirectional (ascending, descending), and over-Vol graduations
  • Single piece construction prevents "pipette drip"
  • Smooth interiors, prevent cell hang-up or clumping inside the pipette
  • Shorter length reduces arm/back strain of end user
  • Excellent optical transparency
  • Color coded cotton plugs and dispenser boxes for easy identification
    • (25mL - Red, 10mL - Orange,  5mL - Blue, 2mL - Green, 1mL - Yellow)
  • Convenient, stackable TPP dispenser box
  • Single wrapped in lint-free paper/plastic blister

Serological pipettes with reservoir: TPP 25/40mL & 50/70mL Serologicals

  • Manufactured with highest grade PS, extremely break resistant and robust
  • Reservoir offers large capacity Vols in a compact, ergonomic design. It augments the total Vol capacity without adding proportionate length to the pipette
  • Slender and short form enables ergonomic working conditions in the sterile hood
  • Small outside diameter of the tube at the tip results in an excellent accessibility of the large pipettes even in small tissue culture flasks
  • 40mL and 70mL max Vols enable larger media aspiration
  • Optimized form of the mouthpiece preserves the rubber of the pipette aid

The serological pipettes with reservoir from TPP are molded with highest grade polystyrene. They fit in all commercially available pipette aids with rubber inserts.


Convenient Packaging Design

  • Individually wrapped in lint free paper / plastic blister
  • Color coded, convenient stackable TPP dispenser box
  • Single dispense or convenient opening for dispensing larger number of pipettes

 

Quality Assurance for all TPP Serologicals:

  • Manufactured with the highest grade of polystyrene for greater break resistance
  • DNAse/RNAse-free, low endotoxin level <0.1EU/ml
  • Sterilized by gamma irradiation
  • Individually wrapped in peel-off paper/plastic wrapper
Item#:
ASTPPSERL3
  • Improved design
  • Vol graduations to 150 mL
  • a reinforced base that won't wobble on the counter, preventing spills
  • a new easy-to-open latch that can be manipulated with one hand
  • greater clarity for improved visibility of contents
  • manufactured by Excel Scientific

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.
