Benchmark's 5 mL centrifuge tube takes the conveniences of standard 1.5 mL tubes and scales them up for larger volumes. These polypropylene tubes come with an attached cap that provides a tight, leak-proof seal. They can also be effortlessly opened (or closed) with one hand. The cap is designed to provide a secure seal from -86°C to +80°C. CapLock™ Clips are available to maintain the integrity of the seal at extreme temperatures. In heated applications, the tube may be "boiled" for up to 10 minutes. At temperatures above 80°C, the use of the CapLock is recommended.
