Microtips are thin, high intensity probes which are designed for processing small sample volumes. Microtips screw into the threaded end of the standard ½″ probe (#4220). The stepped microtip and coupler assembly can be used to process 0.5-15ml volumes in short narrow sample vessels. The probe tip remains 1/8” in diameter for 48mm.

Microtips are only recommended for short bursts of sonication. Small volumes heat up very quickly and when a microtip is run continuously both the liquid sample and probe tip will increase in temperature. Microtips should be used in pulse mode and samples chilled for optimum results.

Processing volumes less than 200ul is not recommended with a microtip. A microtip cannot be properly submerged in such small volumes and will cause foaming, aerosols and overheating. If processing volumes less 200ul is required please contact us for information on a Cup Horn accessory.
