The History

1998 2004 2009 2014 2015 2016 2018
  • TipOne® was first introduced in May 1998. TipOne® tips were the first pipette tips fitting all popular pipettes.
  • The TipOne® system included a convenient refill system from the beginning.
  • TipOne® RPT (Repel Polymer Technology) tips added to the range.
  • In awareness of ongoing automisation in liquid handling, STARLAB introduced TipOne® tips for Tecan liquid handling workstations.
  • STARLAB introduced the ErgoOne® pipette, the perfect pipetting partner for TipOne®.
  • 2013 saw the start of the introduction of our next generation tips. Our newly designed, state of the art pipette tips have flexible thin-wall tip collars for a perfect fit. They are greener too – using up to 50% less material during manufacture.
  • 2014 Following customer feedback, colour-coded wafers were introduced to provide fast, visual identification of tip volume.
  • 2015 Our newly designed modern-looking rack provides stability and is robust enough to be used over and over again. You can see the quality of the perfect rack for yourself!
  • 2015 The new clever refill provided benefits such as an even more compact design, plus all components are now made from easy to recycle polypropylene.
  • 2015 Launch of our unique sterile filter tip refill to the TipOne® system. The new refill provides an economical and eco-friendly alternative to racked filter tips.
  • 2016 saw the introduction of the new TipOne® bags that conveniently stand up on the bench. The zip lock protects your tips for safe, contamination free storage.
  • 2017 The new design Stack Rack is on the horizon. It will still have a wide base for stability but will feature a convenient transparent lid and layers. The new TipOne® system will then be complete.
