ASPR1MASCREWCAP

5mL Snap-Cap MacroTubes®

  • Compatible with standard equipment
  • Easy-open flip top
  • Syringe port in cap
  • Unsurpassed Clarity
  • Dual graduations at every 0.2mL and 0.5mL

5mL MacroTubes® scale up the conveniences of standard 1.5mL tubes for larger volumes. These polypropylene tubes come with an attached cap that provides a tight, leak proof seal, and can also be opened (or closed) with one hand. The cap is designed to provide a secure seal from -86°C to +80°C.

They have the same diameter as standard 15mL tubes for compatibility with centrifuge rotors, etc. In many applications, they have replaced 15mL tubes, reducing plastic waste, storage space and shipping costs. Contamination of pipettor shafts can be eliminated because the tube length is short enough for standard 1mL and/or 5mL tips to reach the tube's conical bottom.

Dimensions: 16.5 x 54mm (not including rim and cap)

Maximum Centrifugal Force: 25,000 x g (when properly supported in appropriate rotor)

AS5MLSNAPTUBES

5ml Microcentrifuge Tubes with Screw Cap

Our new 5mL MacroTube has the convenience of a 1.5mL tube but scaled up for larger Vols. In many cases, these can replace 15mL tubes, dramatically reducing plastic waste, storage space and shipping costs. Additionally, the 56mm length (vs. 120mm for 15mL tubes, greatly reduces the risk of contamination of pipettor shafts, allowing 1mL or 5mL tips to easily reach the bottom.


The tubes are made of high clarify, low binding virgin polypropylene and are certified RNase/DNase free. The 16mm diameter is identical to standard 15mL tubes, thus ensuring compatibility with existing centrifuge rotors. Other equipment, specially designed for 5mL tubes is available.


The MacroTubes are suppled with 20mm(OD) caps that seal smoothly and completely with a single 360° turn. Useable from -86 °C to 110 °C, they are a valuable vessel for boiling and low temperature sample preservation. Choose from non-sterile bulk packaging, or sterile rack packaging (upright in foam racks with caps attached).

Specifications:

  • Compatible with standard equipment
  • Withstands up to 25,000 X g
  • Dual graduations (at every .2mL and .5mL)
  • Unsurpassed clarity
  • RNase and DNase free
Item#:
AS5MLTUBES

New and Improved 5mL centrifuge tubes from MIDSCI. These polypropylene tubes come with an attached cap that provides a leak proof seal and can be effortlessly opened with one hand. The cap is designed to provide a secure seal from -86°C to 180°C. In incubated, heating applications, the tube may be boiled for up to 10 minutes. A cap lock is available for temperatures above 80°C (C1005-T5-CAP). The tubes are made of maximum clarity, low-binding virgin polypropylene and are certified RNase and DNase free. Sterile tubes are also available and packaged in bags of 10 tubes.


The 16mm diameter is identical to the diameter of standard 15mL tubes, which ensures further compatibility with centrifuge rotors and other applications. Compared to 15 mL tubes, the threat of pipettor shaft contamination is greatly reduced as the 56mm total tube length (compared to 120mm for 15 mL conicals) is short enough for standard 1 mL tips to reach the 5mL tubes conical bottom.

The syringe port in the cap is not only useful for needle and syringe access, but also can be useful for venting internal pressure that has built up due to incubation at higher temperatures.

  • Easy flip open top
  • High clarity, virgin polypropylene
  • Syringe port in cap
  • Compatible with standard equipment for 15 mL conicals
  • Dual graduations (at every 0.5 and 0.2 mL)

5.0 mL SuperClear® Centrifuge Tubes with Attached Caps

  • Attached flat snap caps
  • Molded graduations
  • Writing surface
  • Centrifuging to 25,000 x G
  • Autoclavable (122°C) and freezable (-80°C)

5mL SuperClear® snap cap centrifuge tubes are an efficient alternative to 15mL tubes. Designed to fit the same rotors as our 15mL centrifuge tubes, you can use these tubes in procedures that require smaller sample volumes.

The interior surfaces are ultra-smooth with low retention characteristics. Lab testing confirms the superior performance of SuperClear® tubes in light transmission compared to other brands. SuperClear® tubes are more than twice as effective at transmitting light than other brands of 5 mL centrifuge tubes.

SuperClear® tubes feature an extra-thick and durable wall that can withstand centrifugation to 25,000 x G, more than twice some other brands. The ultra-clear polypropylene resin gives you a clear view of the pellet as well as correct color rendition. Designed with ergonomic caps and smooth surfaces.

Tubes have flat, pierceable caps and a side writing surface and are packaged In resealable bags.
