You should know that you will find in our catalog two models of microtubes. The first one is the one that has a snap-cap. There is to know that these microtubes have a flat cap with a beveled edge, which makes it more comfortable for opening and closing. In addition, they have a conical shape in the bottom, so you must keep an eye on that, remember they are the ideal option for centrifuge process.  In the case of the labeling aspect, these microtubes have a frosted writing area on the tube so that you can write on it and is easier for you to identify and store them. Another great feature is the clear molded graduations on tube for the 0.5ml, 1.5ml and 2ml models. Moreover, they also have a flat top with a writable surface, which means you have more identification room. To avoid any evaporations during storage these microtubes have a precise lid sealing. 

On the other hand, the safe-lock microtube models have a flat cap with a beveled edge, which makes it more comfortable for opening and closing. In addition, the 0.5ml and the 1.5ml models, have a conical shape in the bottom, meanwhile the 2.0ml have a rounded bottom, so you have to keep an eye on that.
