Do you hammer on pipette tips?

Universal tips require hammering on, which stretches the shape of the pipette tip rim. The stretched pipette tip rim immediately starts moving back to its original shape away from the tip cone. This can cause leaking, misaligned tips and even pipette tips, that completely fall off the pipette, which will negatively impact the results you achieve.

This will never happen with a VIAFLO electronic pipette grip tip combination. INTEGRA's unique multi lobe tip fitting ensures pipette tips snap into place, gripping the pipette you no longer have to hammer your pipette tips on, or worry about pipette tips falling off. A positive stop ensures, that every tip attaches the same way each and every time.
