Thermo Scientific* PocketTips feature a unique capillary pocket within the tip's internal surface to deliver nanoliter amounts of a sample or to leave 50, 100, 250, or 500nL of your sample in the tip. Drawing your destination sample into the tip automatically mixes the sample into your destination liquid. These user-friendly PocketTips are compatible on multiple workstations allowing flexibility of use and the external dimensions of the tip and rack are the same as standard automation tips requiring minimal modification and set-up. Eliminate timely pipetting steps, reduce lab ware usage and accelerate assays such as PCR primer dilutions. Ideal for a variety of applications including cell-based or low DMSO tolerant assays, selectivity assays (P450), potency determinations (IC50), compound storage and delivery from compound libraries, protein and enzyme aqueous based assays, automated clinical diagnostics and kinetic read (FLIPR) assays. Simple, economical assay miniaturization preserves compounds and reduces reagent costs.
A broad range of pocket volumes are compatible with many industry standard 96- and 384-channel automated liquid handling platforms to allow existing equipment to implement new innovative pipetting procedures. Transfer samples directly to the assay plate Combine sample and assay material with soft in-tip mixing—thorough mixing without damaging sensitive material Consistent accuracy and precision; coefficient of variation of less than 6% can be achieved for any pocket size
