The ILP micro-centrifuge tubes protect your samples with a positive lock sealing system that virtually eliminates evaporation, leakage, and accidental opening. Designed for easy one hand operation, these tubes have a locking latch that hooks the rim of the tube on closure ensuring it will stay closed during boiling, freezing, and centrifugation. This broad cap design makes for more comfortable handling while the extended cap flange produces a greater sealing surface area to resist sample loss due to evaporation or cap deformation. The tube thickness is optimized for optical clarity and strength.
Made of 100% virgin polypropylene co-polymer to provide the highest clarity, and sample recovery. There are no processing additives used in manufacturing (e.g., releasing or antistatic agents); these tubes are certified free of detectable RNase, DNase, DNA and pyrogens.
