Frequently Asked Questions

[fa icon="plus-square"] Are Biotix tips autoclavable?
All of our products are certified to be free of detectable RNase, DNase, Nucleic Acids, Endotoxins and PCR inhibitors. If an additional level of purity is required we recommend purchasing our pre-sterilized product. If your procedures require autoclaving please use the following recommended settings:
  1. Set Autoclave for 121 degrees celcius, 15 psi (1 atm) for 15 minutes
  2. Do not use a dry cycle as this may distort the tips
[fa icon="plus-square"] What is the shelf life of Biotix products?
The shelf life of Biotix products is 5 years from the date of manufacture. This expiration date is found on the label located on the pack box. It is represented by an hour glass and in year month format.
[fa icon="plus-square"] What is “Pre-Sterile”?
Biotix “Pre-Sterile” tips undergo electron beam radiation post manufacturing. Electron beam radiation is the bombardment of high energy electrons causing a cascade through the target material (in our case tips and tubes). These loose electrons destroy DNA and reproductive capabilities of microorganism.
