The SnapTwistTM Micrewtube® provides all the advantages of a modern microcentrifuge tube with screw cap but the closure is a true time saver. The SnapTwistTM Micrewtube® has a multitude of applications around your lab. It is ideal for freezer storage, boiling application, centrifugation etc, and will fit most standard microcentrifuge rotors.
The tubes can be securely sealed by simply capping the closures on. Removal of caps requires an easy 1/4 turn (twist). The ease with which these caps can be manipulated eliminates the danger of spillage associated with other push-on/pull-off caps. The deep internal lip of the cap fits snugly against the interior wall of the tube preventing the contents from coming in contact with the threads, thus reducing the chances of sample contamination. The quality of the sealing system is such that it is not necessary to tighten the closure with pressure to achieve a leakproof seal.
This series of tubes is not available with graduations. Caps cannot be autoclaved since they are made of high density polyethylene. Conical bottom tubes can be centrifuged up to 20,000g. Temperature range: -90 °C to +100 °C. Skirted tubes can be centrifuged up to 17,000g.
All microcentrifuge tubes in the SnapTwistTM Family have a super clear highly polished surface for better viewing of contents.
These new tubes have molded ridges matching serrations on racks such as the Simport® T360 OneHandTM Rack.
Certified RNase-, DNase-, Pyrogen- and DNA-free.
