Abstract

In case of accidental over-pipetting, self-sealing filter tips provide additional protection against contamination by forming a sealed barrier upon contact with the sample liquid, preventing it from passing through the filter. The ability to recover the sample as much as possible thereafter is questionable. An investigation was carried out to determine the sample recovery rate of self-sealing filter tips following over-pipetting of water. Results show that nearly complete sample recovery is achievable using ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. SealMax with regard to water. It has the highest recovery rate and reproducibility irrespective of the filter tip size when compared with two other manufacturers of self-sealing filter tips. Similar recovery rates may be expected when working with other aqueous solutions having physical properties like water. Read more
