Centrifuge tubes deliver high quality and faster speeds

Extended range also includes DNase, RNase and human DNA-free options

Sterilin extends its range of sterile centrifuge tubes

Sterilin’s extended range of sterile polypropylene centrifuge tubes for general laboratory applications offer increased speeds of up to 12,000 x g.

The Newport, Wales-based company also offers a premium range, which is certified free from DNase/RNase/human DNA and non-pyrogenic to 0.5EU/ml for the demanding requirements of molecular biology and clinical laboratories.

Sterilin says the standard centrifuge tubes are in high clarity polypropylene to ensure excellent transparency and chemical resistance. Available in 15ml or 50ml volumes, they have clearly printed graduations and a writing panel for ease of use. Both have a conical base, which offers a high rcf value of 12,000 x g, but the 50ml standard tube is also available as a self-standing, flat-bottomed tube, which offers an rcf value of 6,000 x g. They are supplied in cases of 500 tubes, containing re-sealable inner packs of 25 for convenient and secure storage of unused tubes. Alternatively, the conical based tubes can be supplied in recyclable cardboard racks, which offer excellent upright support and can be recycled with regular paper and cardboard waste, the company says.

All Sterilin centrifuge tubes offer leak-free performance and are gamma irradiated to ensure sterility.
