All our filter tips are made in Japan. Quality control is one of the highest priorities. This ensures that our tips are free of faults, such as misplacement of the filter, broken tips, missing tips, etc.. All of our tips are free of RNase, DNase, genomic DNA and proteins.
All of our filter are equiped with an anti-aerosol filter. Cross-contamination between samples is avoided, ensuring you the confidence you need in your results.
Precision for lowest volumes
The FastGene® Filter Tips come in three different versions for the lowest volumes:
- FastGene® Filter Tips 10 µL short: Ideal for taking minimal volumes out of 96-well plates or 0.2 ml PCR Tubes. The smaller size guarantees easier handling in such small wells.
- FastGene® Filter Tips 10 µL long: Very useful to avoid contamination of the pipette with samples stored in larger tubes.
- FastGene® Filter Tips 20 µL: The best option for larger volumes with a small tip.
Precision for normal and large volumes
The FastGene® Filter Tips 200 µL and 1000 µL are transparent, so that one can always control the liquid aspirated inside the filter tips.
Best volume control
All FastGene® Filter Tips are transparent, so that you can always control the liquid inside the pipette. For even easier observation of the volume aspirated, the smallest and the largest FastGene® Filter Tips (10 µL (short and long) and 1000 µL) come with volume marks.
No DNA adsorption
FastGene® Filter Tips are made of tested polypropylene plastic. As has been proved by several tests, there is no DNA adsorption of the plastic. Thus no concentration fluctuations will occur.
Paper Refill System
The FastGene® Paper Refill System is much more ecological, when compared to standard refill systems. The packaging is secure enough, so that no pipette tip is damaged during transport or storage. However, the ecological footprint of the refill is much less when compared to a complete filter tips box or other refill systems.
The standard FastGene® Filter Tip Racks can be found here.

Do the FastGene Filter Tips have 20 µL and 200 µL marks? The 10µL and 1000 µL have a volume mark?
The 20 µL and 200 µL do not come with a mark.
What kind of polypropylene is used? What material is the filter? Are the tips free of elasticizing materials?
The tips are produced from high quality diamond finish mould using special medical grade virgin polypropylene with very high transparency. – Produced in a fully automatic, human touch free, clean production room with heating ventilation air systems (HVAC) with High Efficiency Particular Air system (HEPA of 0.3 micron) . Free from DNase, RNase, Human DNA, Pyogen and PCR inhibitor. Free of Lubricants and heavy metals and Silicon additives. Therefore, there are no interaction with biological samples- Specially developed PE filters (Porex™) stops aerosols and contamination from entering into the pipette and thus lessens the risk or cross contamination. Free from chemical additives and heavy metals.
What is the expiring date of the FastGene Filter tips?
The expiry date refers to the duration of sterilization and is around 3 years.
