"Highly recommended, easy to use and ideal for those medium sized sample volumes where a 1.5ml tube is too small and a 15ml way too big. The availability of snap cap and screw cap 5.0 ml size enable the optimal choice for different requirements in sample preparation, incubation, storage, or other applications."

"What a life saver. It’s a brilliant product. perfect size for bit bigger dilutions as always had to rely on 15ml falcon tubes before. Lid locks are an advantage as well. I am using the Protein Lo-bind 5ml tubes and had no issues yet. A must to have consumable in Lab "

"This product works great. The tubes are sturdy and well made....they won't crack in the centrifuge like some products from other companies have done."

"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."
