A good product to prolong the specimen viability, with good reproducibility. Messy.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area: T cell subsets

"The tubes are glass, which is a slight drawback. The caps are the old stopper like tops, not the newer pop off tops. They are messy to recap. BUT, the specimens are viable for up to 7 day at room temp, and the results are reproducible."

Manufacturer's Response

Thank you for your business. Streck relies on glass tubes because of its integrity and longer shelf-life than plastic, more information on streck.com. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our Product Manager, Rebecca, at rwilshusen@streck.com

Great product.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Hematology of body fluids

"I love the product, we have never had an issue with using it for our quality control assessment of our body fluid testing and differentials. The one thing I wish it had was a dropper so we did not have to take off the top and use a pipette every time we needed it."

  • Application Area:Preservation of whole blood for extended immunophenotyping assays

"Consistent and highly reproducible results. Use of this product improves overall laboratory operations by reducing the potential loss of samples which may be subjected to delays in transport."
