Microcentrifuge tubes are made from high quality of virgin polypropylene by ABDOS

Day to day laboratory works require many equipment’s, instruments, plastic wares, consumables, etc. Microcentrifuge tubes are one of those consumables which are like staple of laboratory research. They are widely used in molecular biology and biochemistry to store minuscule amounts of liquids.

Abdos Lab manufactures microcentrifuge tubes which are of highest quality of polypropylene and hence ultra-clear. They are created in such a way that maximum sample is recovered due to highly polished interior tube surface. These tubes are DNase, RNase and Pyrogen free produced under aseptic or germ-free conditions with high sterility control and further exposed to gamma radiation for better sterilization. This, they are safer to be used in molecular and biochemical experiments. Also, amber-coloured tubes are used for light sensitive samples which do not allow light to penetrate through the samples.

Microcentrifuge tubes have flat caps to avoid popping; also pierce able and with integral snap caps making it efficiently leak-proof. Caps are such that can be handled with one hand i.e. easily opened or closed. Cylindrical plastic ware with conical bottoms makes them idle choice for centrifugation in microbiology, biochemistry, immunology experiments, etc.

As a product of polypropylene, they can be used for storage or procedures at low temperatures and also with various organic solvents like chloroform. The tubes are autoclavable and with frosting on the tube’s surface makes writing easier. All the tubes have large graduations making the identification easier. The tubes can resist maximum 20,000 RCF.

Microcentrifuge Tubes can be reused after sterilization or disinfection but there arises difficulty in cleaning as it has plastic surface. Rather being inexpensive, it can be daily replenished.
