  • The duckbill cap reduces the pressure required to open the tube with a wider contact surface yet ensures the cap will remain closed during centrifugation
  • Low retention properties are not achieved by a coating or plastic embedding processes ensuring that samples will not be contaminated from these additives
  • Tubes will remain closed during centrifugation yet open easily with one hand as needed
  • Tubes are available in Amber to protect your light-sensitive samples
  • Graduation marks on the microcentrifuge tube allow for effective sample reference
Color/Packaging  Options
  • A variety of packaging options are available to help with contamination control in the lab
  • For stringent sterility requirements, individually wrapped sterile tubes are available
