Application Note: Applications of the New Eppendorf 5.0 mL system
14 November 2013

The new Eppendorf Tube 5.0 mL is a practical alternative for sample volumes in the range between 2 and 5 mL. It provides comfortable and ergonomic handling, combined with a lower risk of contamination. Compared with aliquoting the sample into several smaller tubes, considerably less work is required. Owing to its conical shape, which is akin to that of a 15 mL tube, it can be easily integrated into many existing workflows. Simultaneously, an extensive collection of accessories is now available, providing the basis for safe performance of standard applications such as pipetting, centrifugation, mixing, temperature control and storage.
