"The 5 ml tube is ideal to prepare solutions in a slightly bigger volume but not too big like a 15 ml tube. It works perfectly as a normal eppendorf tube and is ideal to use with 1000ul pipette too. "

"The 5 ml tubes give you a lot more flexibility of manipulations of samples in a tube. For example, if you have to use a tissue homogenizer on a small volume, such as 3 ml, the 5 ml tube has enough volume to accommodate this. They fit in tube racks made for 15 ml conical tubes, which is convenient. The price seems high, since they are the same approximate price as the 15 ml conical tubes, but they have different uses. My only complaint is that the way Eppendorf has manufactured them with an outline of their logo underneath the cap, it can be hard to see what you wrote on the top."
Eppendorf Tubes are the benchmark for simple and safe sample preparation from 0.5 to 2.0 mL. For larger volumes, 15 mL and 50 mL conical tubes are available.
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!
