Reuse

How do you clean and reuse a pipette? They used to put them in soap for a couple of hours, then wash them abundantly with tap and distilled water, boil them for 2 minutes and dry them at 37C. For basic rules of safety and possible cross contamination pipette tips should not be re-used. This pipette tip washer is a one step solution. You walk away and come back to clean tips. Instead of discarding the tips after use, scientists just eject each tip back into an empty rack. The racks go into TipNovus. Depending on which system, Tipnovus can process 4 racks every 10 -12 minutes. Conical tubes and even pipette tips can be washed and/or autoclaved and reused. Pipette tip boxes can be repurposed to hold other lab supplies or as containers for Western blots.

For basic rules of safety and possible cross contamination pipette tips should not be re-used. Can you reuse plastic pipettes? Composed of polypropylene, a highly recyclable plastic, pipette tips can now be reused multiple times with the integration of Grenova tip reuse technology in laboratory workflows. If you literally can’t work without reusing them, then I suppose this might work, but you’ll definitely want to autoclave them before reusing after your washes. However, I still would recommend pretty much literally anything else since tips are not designed to be reused.
