What is LTS?
Smart Scientists are switching to Rainin Lite Touch Tip Ejection Pipetting System (LTS™)

Rainin single channel pipettes are available with the option of LTS. All Rainin Multichannel pipettes feature LTS.
The unique LTS system dramatically reduces high tip ejection forces decreasing or even eliminating the risk of laboratory Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI).
Cylindrical design reduces tip ejection forces
Low force means freedom from tired hands
Tips seal reliably and consistently without excessive force
LTS Reduces Tip Ejection Forces by 85%
With traditional conical tip/shaft designs, tip ejection forces can be as high as 10kg, with an average of 4kg.
Tip ejection force is only 0.6kg with LTS.
Consistent seal without excessive force
The LTS cylindrical design produces a reliable, consistent seal without excessive force.
LTS tips are thin walled and incorporate a small, well-defined seal area and a positive ‘stop’. This ‘stop’ lets you know exactly when the seal is made – no need to ‘jam’ or pound the shaft onto the tip.
LTS Pipettes Solve Common Multichannel Problems
The LTS cyclindrical tip system brings particular advantages when using multichannel pipettes.
The tips mount and eject easily, creating a reliable seal with minimum force (only 2.5kg for 8-channel pipettes).
Consistent sample loading
Leak-free and reliable seal without hand tightening- first time, every time
NO nozzle o-rings: no breakage, no maintenance, no sample contamination, no problems
LTS pipettes must be used with LTS tips
