Eco-friendly tip solution
Tired of your recycling bin overflowing with empty tip racks? ECO Racks significantly reduce the amount of plastic used in your lab, and are easily stacked and compressed to take up less recycling bin space.
- ECO Racks contain 60 % less plastic than alternative racks.
- The innovative rack design can be used with all single and multichannel INTEGRA handheld pipettes.
- For the sturdiest and most convenient GRIPTIP® pipetting experience, ECO Racks can be paired with our one-of-a-kind, reusable PopTop Base.
- For an even greener option, the PopTop Base is compatible with our GREEN CHOICE refill inserts.
- Also available as Low Retention GRIPTIPS® for improved results when pipetting certain liquids.

How it works
By designing our GRIPTIPS® in tandem with INTEGRA pipettes, we have created a unique, integrated system that offers the securest pipette tip connection. Without hammering, the GRIPTIPS® snap onto the pipette’s tip fitting, which prevents tips from loosening, leaking or falling off.
60 % less plastic
Molded from virgin polyethylene terephthalate (PET), ECO Racks use 60 % less material than standard GRIPTIP® racks.
Occupy less space
ECO Racks easily nest inside each other, and can be compressed to minimize the recycling bin space required.
To mold the Low Retention ECO Rack GRIPTIPS®, INTEGRA uses a unique polypropylene blend with heightened hydrophobic properties. Using Low Retention ECO Rack GRIPTIPS® prevents low surface tension samples from spreading out and “wetting” the inner wall of the tips, allowing them to bead-up for a maximum liquid recovery. The Low Retention ECO Racks are designed to work with our standard 12.5 to 1,250 µl GGRIPTIP® volumes and all handheld INTEGRA pipettes.
WIDE BORE ECO Rack GRIPTIPS® reduce cell fragmentation caused by shearing and flow resistance. Wide Bore GRIPTIPS® are specifically designed to have bigger orifices to allow for the smooth non-disruptive transfer of viscous liquids.
Innovative rack design
ECO Racks feature an innovative rib design to support GRIPTIP® loading from single, four, six, eight, twelve or sixteen channel INTEGRA manual and electronic handheld pipettes.
ECO Racks can be paired with our optional, reusable PopTop Base for sturdier, more convenient GRIPTIP® loading. Simply insert any ECO Rack into the PopTop Base to allow one-handed operation, plus lid opening at the press of a button, so you don’t have to put down your pipette while working.
GREEN CHOICE insert compatibility
Use even less plastic! The PopTop Base is compatible with our GREEN CHOICE inserts, so you can make your lab even more environmentally friendly.
