Opaque black 5 mL MacroTube screw top Five-O centrifuge tubes.

Black 5 mL macrotube Five-O™ screw cap tubes from MTC Bio.  Perfect choice for protecting samples and reagents from light.

Opaque black 5 mL MacroTubes 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.  Sterile.  Low binding.  Made of high clarity virgin polypropylene.  Withstand temperature 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.

Light protective 5 mL conical tubes com with caps attached, racked in styrofoam (50 tubes/rack, 10 racks/case, 500 tubes/case).
