Eppendorf Tubes are the benchmark for simple and safe sample preparation from 0.5 to 2.0 mL. Now Eppendorf introduces a 5mL tube.
When working with medium-sized samples, researchers often have no choice but to use tubes designed for larger volumes. With medium sample volumes you may face an issue: they need to be processed with large conical screw cap tubes - impractical, inconvenient and often prone to contamination.
Eppendorf now offers the "missing link": the Eppendorf Tube 5.0 mL. This product fills the gap between existing tube versions and enables the simple and safe processing of sample volumes up to 5.0 mL!
Eppendorf Tube® 5.0 mL Features:
Same diameter and bottom shape as a 15 mL conical tube—allows for use in existing adapters and racks
Made from a unique highly transparent polypropylene for easy visibility of pellets
Precise lid sealing for minimized sample evaporation during storage and incubation
Hinged lid prevents accidental lid opening from -86°C to 80°C. For higher temperatures, use the Tube Clip to eliminate the risk of lid opening. g-Safe™: Exceptional centrifugation stability of up to 25,000 x g prevents tube breakage
Manufactured without the use of slip agents, plasticizers and biocides—substances that have been shown to leach from plastic consumables into the sample and negatively affect bio-assay results
Large frosted lid and surface on the side for easy labeling
Graduations provide an easy volume reference
Autoclavable when open (121°C, 20 min)
Available in batch-certified Eppendorf® PCR clean, Sterile and Biopur® quality for guaranteed purity
