To overcome this issue Accumax has developed a unique diamond finish Swiss Mold produced from pure polymer which creates a superhydrophobic internal surface that prevents any adhesion and ensures maximum recovery of sample yield.
Our manufacturing process involves no additives of chemicals such as slip agents or biocides and is made from USFDA-approved virgin polypropylene resins without any trace of heavy metals
Strict quality testing assures the absolute purity of Accumax low retention tips. Each tip is tested free from DNase, RNase, Pyrogen, Human DNA and PCR inhibitors. Concentricity of the flow of liquid is homogenous and are produced aseptically with stringent quality standards in an automated facility
APPLICATIONS OF LOW RETENTION TIPS:
Accumax Low retention tips are specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of molecular biology techniques. These techniques often involve highly sensitive detection methods that require extreme reliability and reproducibility in pipetting. In addition, the reagents and samples used in DNA and protein analysis methods often contain detergents. By minimizing sample retention and improving pipetting reproducibility, Accumax Low retention tips ensure accurate and precise results even when working with the most difficult samples like,
MATERIALS AND METHOD
In this study liquid retention of various tips were determined from different major manufacturing brands.1000μl low retention tips from Accumax was compared with three other competitors’ tips and were used for UV-VIS Spectrophotometry analysis for checking retention of residual liquid in the tip. The green dye solution was prepared as per below standard concentration range. The standards were scanned in the UV-VIS range from 200-800nm to identify absorbance maxima of the colored dye. Absorbance maximum was observed at 430nm for green color dye.
The retain volumes are illustrated in figure above and are summarised in the table below

Accumax low retention tips shows best retention capacity compared to Competitor E tips which is almost two times more than Accumax tips. whereas tips from Competitor J and Competitor T show retention capacity of 8x and 3x less respectively compared to Accumax low retention tips.
