Conical-Bottom Centrifuge Tubes, 5 ml, Argos Technologies
The Argos graduated 5 ml prep tubes offer a convenient alternative to 15 ml conical tubes for applications involving volumes less than 5 ml.
- Certified Rnase-, Dnase-, and Pyrogen-free
- Made of polypropylene
The 5 ml prep tubes can withstand autoclaving to 120 °C (248 °F) for 15 minutes at 15 psi, and are suitable for freezing to –90 °C (–130 °F).
All tubes can be centrifuged in a FlexiFuge Mini Centrifuge, or in the same centrifuge rotor that spins standard 15 ml tubes. Tubes are rated at speeds up to 14000 rpm. Easy to read graduations and a frosted marking area on the tube wall and cap are provided for sample identification.
For applications that require boiling or harsh chemicals, the T2075A CapSafe tube features a specially designed cap with a locking feature that securely snaps the tube shut. The CapSafe tube provides the same temperature range and certifications as the standard 5 ml tubes.
The smaller tube size allows for only the pipet tip to be inserted into the tube, rather than the entire pipet barrel.
