Our standard tip to elbow length is 550µ for V and W type pipettes, and 750µ for H type pipettes.  Tip to elbow length in 1mm and other lengths may be manufactured after order is received.

The last two digits in the catalogues represent tip bended angle.  For example, if you need 35 degree angle the last two digits should be changed to 35.
