The micropipette tip


A micropipette tip is a conical tube made of plastic.

They come in different shapes (more or less tapered), sizes and colors (white, yellow, blue).


The tip is placed on the adapted micropipette, to allow a small volume to be taken with high precision and transferred to a container, solution or sample according to the application.

For more details on the description and use of a micropipette tip:
