The introduction of this new screw cap container represents the latest significant innovation within the Eppendorf Tubes® 5.0 mL system.
This tube will complement the application spectrum of sample processing in the medium volume range: in addition to sample processing the 5.0 mL screw cap tube is ideally suited for secure transport, long term storage at temperatures as low as -86 °C as well as sample incubation at up to 100 °C. In addition to a secure seal, the grooved and multi-surface side contours of the newly designed screw cap ensure a slip-free grip.
To accommodate the demands of individual laboratory protocols, the Eppendorf Tubes® 5.0 mL with screw cap are available in the certified purity grades “Eppendorf Quality”, “PCR clean” and “Sterile”.
