Tubes made of polypropylene
Caps made of polyethylene
Designed for the simple and safe processing of medium-sized sample volumes. Up until now, for samples larger than 2.0 ml, the only choice was to use large conical screw-cap tubes (15 ml for example) which were both impractical and prone to contamination.
The potential pipettor shaft contamination is greatly reduced since the 62.5 mm total tube length (vs. 120 mm for 15 ml tubes) is short enough for standard 1 ml or 5 ml tips to reach the tubes's conical bottom
The 16 mm tube diameter is identical to the diameter of standard 15 ml tubes, ensuring further compatibility with centrifuge rotors, etc.
Smooth bottom has no sharp points hurting your fingers. Ultra clear resin gives you a better view. Slim design fits high capacity rotors.
