The process of making a pipette tip can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, however, the basic principles remain largely the same. The process of manufacturing a plastic pipette tip with a long capillary in front involves the following steps:
- Injection molding of a pipette tip in a mold.
- Opening of the mold and drawing the plastic section into a capillary.
- The unsolidified plastic section is selectively heated.
- The tip is drawn vertically, and the tip is shaped using a molding element.
