Vyon® Pipette Tip Filters

Specifically designed to prevent sample carryover and aerosol bypass, our expertise in porous plastic manufacturing enables us to offer a range of pipette tip filters that are produced with precise specification, optimal air flow and laboratory grade materials that ensure a clean and contaminant-free liquid handling system.
 

Superior Liquid Handling Properties
  • Greater optimised airflow for improved pipetting precision and accuracy. Obtain consistent and even target draw volume every time. Perfect for manual and automated pipette systems.
  Robust Filters for High Volume Assembly
  • The inherent strength and hardness of Vyon® pipette tip filters means they are able to withstand up to 70% more compression than conventional porous plastic materials making them ideal for hardwearing automated assembly.
  Cut-to-Seal
  • Manufactured to tight tolerances (+/- 0.1mm) ensures a sealed fit, every time. This prevents fine aerosol passing through the filter into the liquid handling system.
  Pure & Clean Materials
Vyon® porous plastics is made from clean* materials and are designed with purity in mind. 
  • Free of Heavy Metal Interference
  • FDA Approved Raw Materials
  • USP Class VI Approved
  • Manufacture with NO release agent
  *Internal and 3rd party testing data is available on request.  


Vyon® Materials
Designed specifically for use as pipette tip filters, our Vyon® materials are designed to prevent aerosol bypass and any sample carryover. Optimised to be the perfect fit in your tip, our Vyon® porous plastic filters can be manufactured in a wealth of sizes to meet your exact requirements.    While our core business is bespoke engineered products, we offer a standard range of pipette tip filters materials. Help cut down on development time and tooling costs by using one of our standard Vyon® materials available in 2.95mm, 3.25mm, 3.55mm & 4mm thickness'.

Deep Well Storage Plates

Deep well polypropylene microplates are commonly used for sample storage in life science laboratories. An essential aspect of the manufacture of these plates is the selection of clean raw materials for injection moulding.

Polypropylene is an inert and heat resistant material, ideal for sample storage. However, all grades of polypropylene are not the same, for example, injection moulding grades of polypropylene often have high concentrations of chemicals to aid the moulding process. This allows rapid production of plates and lower costs, but may compromise the integrity of samples or compounds which are stored in such plates for extended periods. The problem is particularly acute where compounds are stored as solutions in solvents such as methanol or DMSO, as these excellent solvents have a tendency to extract from the polypropylene base material any added extractable compounds such as mould release agents or polymer flow improvers.

Porvair Sciences has published detailed analysis of its own and other manufacturer’s plates, with MS traces, so that you can compare good and bad performers.
