5ml Flip Cap Macrotubes, non-sterile
Pharma Product Consultants
If you don't need a 15mL tube, why pay for it?
Our 5mL MacroTube™ family of products takes the conveniences of 1.5mL and 2.0mL tubes and scales them up for larger volumes and throughput applications. These tubes are helpful in various applications where replacing 15mL tubes will make sense, they dramatically reduce plastic waste, make storage spaces more efficient, and help lower overall shipping costs. Additionally, the 56mm length (vs. 120mm for 15mL tubes) greatly reduces the risk of contamination of pipettor shafts, allowing 1mL or 5mL tips to easily reach the tube bottom.
The tubes are made of high clarity, low-binding, virgin polypropylene and are certified RNase and DNase free. The 16mm diameter is identical to standard 15mL tubes, ensuring compatibility with existing centrifuge rotors. Other equipment, specially designed for 5mL tubes, is available from Benchmark™ (USA) and German-based equipment manufacturers (eg. dry blocks, tube racks, and thermal shakers/vortexers).
Snap Cap Tubes come with an attached cap that provides a tight, leak-proof seal, and can be effortlessly opened with one hand. It provides a secure seal from -86°C to +80°C. In heated applications, it may be "boiled" for up to 10 minutes. At temperatures above 80°C, the use of the CapLock Clip™ is recommended to maintain seal integrity. The center of the cap also has a thin "membrane" area, for easy access by a syringe/needle.
