Thermo Scientific PocketTips
Achieve nanoliter dispensing on existing liquid handling equipment
Jump to Ordering Guide
Thermo Scientific PocketTips disposable automation tips feature a unique capillary pocket on the internal surface to allow delivery of nanoliter amounts of sample using existing liquid handling robotic systems. Simply drawing liquid into the tip, and immediately dispensing leaves 50, 100, 250, or 500 nl in the tip. Drawing your destination sample into the tip automatically mixes and the sample into your destination liquid.
Benefits
  • Allows easy, economical assay miniaturization that preserves compound and reduces reagent costs
  • Eliminates timely intermediate pipetting steps reducing labware usage and speeding up assays
  • Improves data by eliminating compound precipitation and pipetting errors
  • Mixing occurs in tip and will not damage sensitive cells or other materials
  • Works on existing equipment allowing flexibility of use, with minimal setup or changes required
  • Minimal amount of source sample (1-2 µl) and dilution/assay buffer (5 µl) needed
  • Variety of formats and pocket sizes available

Internally Molded Pocket
Depending on the tip chosen, the pocket holds 50-500 nl of sample, and accurately delivers sample with less than 5% CV’s. Since the pocket is open, it will not clog even when used with greasy or sticky compounds, and since mixing occurs within the tip, cells or other sensitive samples are not damaged.

Ease of Use
PocketTips are easy to use on almost any liquid handling instrument and are available with 50, 100, 250, and 500 nl pockets in 96 or 384 formats. Since the external dimensions of the tip and rack are the same as standard automation tips, PocketTips require very little modification and setup and our highly skilled Automation Specialists are available to assist with setup and validation of your instrument with PocketTips.

PocketTips can be used on the following instruments:
- Beckman FX, NX, 2000, 3000, Multimek
- Perkin Elmer PlateTrak, MiniTrak, Evolution P-3, Janus
- Caliper Sciclone ALH, Zephyr, RapidPlate
- Molecular Devices FLIPR
- Hamilton Star, Starlet
- Tecan Aquarius, Genesis, GenMate, TeMo
- BioTek Precision XS
- Apricot Personal Pipettors
- Many 200 µl handheld pipettes

Application Flexibility
Improves throughput and lowers cost for a variety of applications, including:
- Kinetic Read (FLIPR)
- Cell-based or low DMSO tolerant assays
- Selectivity Assays (P450)
- Potency Determinations (IC50)
- Assay Miniaturization (1536-)
- PCR Primer Dilutions
- Compound Storage and delivery from compound libraries
- Protein and enzyme aqueous based assays
- Automated clinical diagnostics
- Any application that requires small volume precise pipetting

Impeccable Quality
Like all Thermo Scientific Automation tips, PocketTips are produced on the highest quality equipment and undergo a rigorous quality inspection process to ensure that every tip is straight and free of defects. PocketTips are also certified free of DNA, DNAse, RNAse, and other contaminants.
