Safe-Cone Filters

These unique and replaceable polyethylene (PE) filters prevent any fluids and liquid vapours from reaching the internal components of the pipette.


  • Reduce the risk of contaminating the internal components of our pipettes
  • Prolong the pipette’s lifetime
  • Reduce maintenance intervals
  • Are cost-effective compared to filter tips

When Should You Use them? The ultimate pipette protectors are available in two types:

  • Plus Filter: For more demanding applications such as radioactive work, cell culture, bacterial and virological work and molecular biology.
  • Standard Filter: For general applications. Can be used in same type of work as the Plus filter, but needs to be changed more frequently.

How Often Should You Change? The interval of changing the filter depends completely on the application and the sample. However, according to studies, the filter is recommended to be changed daily (after 50 to 250 pipettings) and immediately in case of over-aspiration.

How to Change? To ensure that the user is protected from contamination, tweezers should be used when removing used filters from the pipette tip cone. The Tacta and the mLINE feature a built-in filter ejectors, so tweezers are unnecessary. In addition, the tip cone should be cleaned with ethanol (70%) prior to the insertion of a new filter.
