MTC Bio MacroTube Five-O Screw Cap Tubes.
5 mL Five-O screw cap tubes are much more convenient to use than 15 mL tubes when working with smaller volumes. Reduces plastic waste, saves storage space (60% less storage space required) and shipping costs. Use of short 5 mL conical tube (60 mm) reduces chance of contamination from pipettor shaft compared to use of 15 mL tube (120 mm). Easily remove screw cap with just one complete turn.
Certified DNase and RNase free. Low binding. Made of high clarity virgin polypropylene. Temperature use range of -86°C to 110°C. Graduated at 1 mL, 0.5 mL and 0.2 mL increments.
5 mL MacroTubes withstand force up to 25,000 x g (when properly cushioned in centrifuge rotor). 16 mm tube outer diameter (OD) is the same OD as standard 15 mL conical tubes, allowing centrifugation in centrifuge rotors designed for 15 mL tubes (cushion adapters for 15 mL tube rotor available for purchase). 20 mm cap OD.
Available sterile with attached caps, racked in styrofoam (50 tubes/rack, 10 racks/case, 500 tubes/case) or non-sterile with loose caps, bulk packed (100 tubes/bag, 5 bags/case, 500 tubes/case).
Good choice for making high dilutions of antibodies during Western blotting, for example (e.g. 1/10,000 dilution).
Custom workstation rack, freezer boxes and minicentrifuge to fit 5 mL Five-O screw cap tubes, and opaque Five-O screw top tubes also available for purchase.
