Biomek Tips

Use Biomek tips for proper fit and performance
Biomek tips from Beckman Coulter are the only tips designed, validated and approved for use with Biomek liquid handlers. Tip definitions, pipetting techniques, templates and color-coded tip racks are further integrated into Biomek software to facilitate method development and protect sample integrity. 

Don't compromise the quality of your data by using “compatible” tips.  If it's not from Beckman Coulter, your results may be at risk.
