Eppendorf® DNA LoBind™ Microcentrifuge Tubes improve recovery by reducing sample-totube binding—without the use of any coatings or additives. A combination of specially developed technology and the purest, select polypropylene ensures nearly 100% recovery of DNA/RNA from the tube. Free of DNA, DNase, RNase and PCR inhibitors. Rated to 30,000 x g (except 2.0 mL). 

Significantly reduced DNA loss:
– < 0.3% less at standard reaction conditions
– < 1% less at high-salt concentratons (e.g., for precipitation)

Eppendorf® Protein DNA LoBind™ Microcentrifuge Tubes are specifically designed for use in proteomics or other fields of protein research (antibodies, cell biology, peptide drugs etc.), where samples tend to be very small and sample recovery is vital. LoBind tubes improve recovery by reducing sample-to-tube binding—without the use of any additives or coatings. A combination of specially developed technology and the purest, select polypropylene results in tube binding that ensures minimal loss (<3%). Enzymes remain active, and they are not denatured by any tube-surface interactions.

Eppendorf® Biopur Safe-Lock™ Centrifuge Tubes provide the highest biological purity category. This is achieved by a fully automated production process under clean room conditions and the subsequent environmentally friendly ß sterilization. The patented hinged lid on these tubes eliminates any danger of leaks. Safe-Lock Tubes ensure absolute safety when working with expensive or toxic samples, radioactive substances, or DNA. The 0.5 mL, 1.5 mL, and 2.0 mL test tubes have volume graduations and etched marking surfaces. All tubes are individually sealed.

These premium quality general purpose centrifuge tubes are available with molded-in graduations, or for exceptional reading ease, printed graduations. Large writing area on printed tubes makes identification simple. Molded in seal-ring ensures a leakproof seal without the contamination problems associated with cap liners. 15 mL tubes are available in polystyrene or polypropylene. Polystyrene offers glass-like clarity and can withstand 1800 RCF. Polypropylene has excellent chemical resistance and can withstand 6400 RCF.

These 12mL heavy duty PYREX® conical centrifuge tubes are made to the same O.D. and length specifications as No. C1880, but with increased wall thickness for greater mechanical strength. In order to conform to outside diameter and overall length limitations imposed by centrifuge rotors and supports, it has been necessary to reduce the capacity these heavy duty tubes.

Bio Plas® brand G-Tubes are virtually transparent and far exceed the toughness of any microcentrifuge tube. When the G-Tube cap is closed there will be an audible "snap" that indicates a secure closure has been formed. Made of tough, clear, specially formulated polypropylene, the 0.6mL, 1.5mL and 2.0mL G-Tubes™ have the same chemical resistant quality as standard tubes --- but they're sturdier and virtually transparent to give a better view.
