Rino 1.5ml Screw-cap Tubes & Bead Lysis Kits


RINO™ tubes have a screw-cap so they seal more tightly and provide an extra layer of protection against sample loss. A molded rubber gasket in the lid can help prevent the release of aerosols that may form during homogenization.


What model Bullet Blenders can I use with RINO™ tubes?

RINO tubes can be used inin BB24-AU (Bullet Blender Gold) and BBY24M(Bullet Blender Storm) models.

What do I need to use RINO™ tubes?

Use of these tubes in a snap-cap style homogenizer requires a RINO lid gasket. All BB24-AU and BBY24M model homogenizers will arrive with a labeled RINO lid gasket installed. These instruments will still come with a labeled Eppendorf® gasket so you have the option of using Safe-Lock™ tubes. For customers who only have an Eppendorf®gasket, we will provide the replacement lid gasket free of charge with the first order of RINO tubes or kits for a limited time.


Please contact our customer service team to request a RINO gasket (1-800-227-9997).

How do I change the gasket on my Bullet Blender?

Switching back and forth between lid gaskets is easy – just remove the three screws with a Phillips head screwdriver and gently lift off the gasket. Place the second gasket in the correct orientation on the lid and insert the screws. Do not overly-tighten the screws when installing a gasket.

How do I know which RINO™ kit to use?

Our bead selection chart will aid your decision based on sample and sample size.

What protocols should I use for RINO™ tubes?
