New Video Demonstrates Magnetic Pipette Tip Revolution

Apr 01 2019 Read 287 Times

Integra Biosciences is revolutionising handheld pipetting with the introduction of the MagneTips system. Complementing the company’s popular GripTips, the ground-breaking MagneTips technology eliminates the need to pick up pipette tips, simply wave the pipette over the tip box, push the button and tips will snap on automatically. You can see this incredible technology in action by visiting the Integra website and watching footage of the system in testing.

The unique MagneTips system will soon be available as an option for all Integra electronic pipettes, completely replacing the standard tip ejector mechanism. The disposable MagneTips have superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles embedded into the rim of each tip, allowing rapid tip pick-up and disposal using miniaturised superconducting electromagnets fitted to each pipetting channel. The system is controlled via a thumb-operated toggle switch, saving up to three seconds per tip pick-up action. This truly innovative system ensures tips are always correctly sealed and perfectly aligned, and has been developed specifically for high throughput environments where every second counts.

Visit the Integra website to watch the magic of the preliminary footage from the test lab.
