Mettler Toledo is a specialist manufacturer of industrial instruments, weighing solutions (retail), and laboratory instruments from the United States. In laboratory fields, Mettler Toledo produces RAININ pipettes with variety of functions, sizes, and specifications or other features that keeps up with the trend. Its focus on developing pipettes for laboratory research needs makes Mettler Toledo the most prestigious pipette provider in the world. As a proof of its high dedication in serving wide-range customers and showing the quality of its big name in laboratory researches, now Mettler Toledo also has many official branch providers in several countries such as Germany, Britain, Switzerland, and the People’s Republic of China. Therefore. Therefore, it is not surprising that many researchers around the world are really familiar with the trademarks “RAININ Micropipette” or “Mettler Toledo Micropipette”.
Research needs in this era are and will always increasingly shifting towards modern laboratories with more complex demands. So, no wonder sophisticated liquid handling system are always needed, added with additional equipment or other complementary accessories that can support laboratory activities from time to time. This makes almost all of the Mettler Toledo RAININ Pipette are equipped with unique features and settings, and are very user-friendly, so that it can make researchers monitor and adjust sample volume smoothly. On the other hand, Mettler Toledo also provides advanced semi-automatic pipetting instruments that are compatible with more types of liquid samples such as RAININ BenchSmart 96.
As a leading pipette manufacturer, Mettler Toledo also provides many different types of tips that can be purchased in bulk (1000 tips) or even equipped with particular racks. Mettler Toledo also offers many different types of tips based on every research needs: the universal pipette tips (commonly used in most research) and the LTS pipette tips which are specially made by RAININ, and also can be found at Mettler Toledo RAININ Pipet-Lite XLS+ Single Channel Micropipette, Mettler Toledo RAININ Pipet-Lite XLS+ Multichannel Micropipette, Mettler Toledo RAININ E4 XLS+ Single Channel Micropipette, and Mettler Toledo RAININ E4 XLS+ Multichannel Micropipette. Meanwhile, the universal tips can only be found at Mettler Toledo RAININ Pipet-Lite XLS+ Single Channel Micropipette and Mettler Toledo RAININ E4 XLS+ Single Channel Micropipette.
RAININ Universal Tips consist of three types: The Specialty Tips, The Standard Tips, and The Low Retention Tips. The Specialty Tips are universal pipette tips made for specific research needs, while Nomal Tips are pipette tips that commonly found in general pipettes. The Low Retention Tips are pipette tips that can help minimize residual volume in viscous samples with low surface tension.
The RAININ Specialty Tips consist of three types: The Wide-Orifice Tips, The ShaftGard™ 10 µL Tips, and The Gel-Well™. Each of them has different features according to different applications. The Wide-Orifice Tips has 1.5 mm diameter tip which allows it to take samples that are classified as “fragile” such as mammalian cells or high-molecular-weight DNA. The ShaftGard™ 10 µL Tips can easily take or remove difficult samples such as biological, radioactive, and other critical samples smoothly without having to fear about any contamination thanks to its protected shaft and tip ejector. On the other hand, there is also Gel-Well™ with super-pointed tip and is ideal for DNA-sequencing and protein separation.
Last but not least, RAININ Standard Tips and Low Retention Tips. Both are distinguished by the ability to hold the sample in the pipette. The RAININ Low Retention can restrain the viscosity of the sample so that it will not drip easily, something that RAININ Standard cannot do. However, both of them can collect as much as 10 µL of liquid samples, so just use it best according to your research needs.
