Pipette tip magnetic revolution

Integra Biosciences has introduction the MagneTips system. Complementing the company’s popular GripTips, the 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. This technology can be seen 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 innovative system ensures tips are always correctly sealed and perfectly aligned, and has been developed specifically for high-throughput environments where every second counts.
