Know more about the medical tubes

Among your laboratory equipment, you need to have the right instruments in order to perform tests, research experiments and a large of procedures that you can do in your lab. Some of those important and ideal instruments are tubes. But not just any kind of tubes. You need to have special laboratory tubes. These instruments are especially conceived to hold small quantities of substances that need to go under some kind of tests or experimentation.

Tubes are traditionally made from glass with different sizes and purposes. However, we are offering you a very important amount of polypropylene tubes. This material is a good choice for containers because polypropylene’s melting point is 130 degrees Celsius. There is an almost infinite variety range of tubes. You may find in our catalog:

  • PCR tubes.
  • Centrifuge tubes.
  • Microtubes.
  • Transport tubes.
  • Urine tubes.
  • Culture tubes.

Medical tubes

You can find tubes in many fields of science. For example in chemical labs, tubes are usually glass-material because they have better resistance to heat and corrosive chemicals, providing a longer life. Since they are a very common and fundamental item in any laboratory, they come in different measurements such as 10 to 20 mm wide and 50 to 200 mm long. In biosciences having culture tubes are a also a fundamental item to have in your laboratory. These tubes are for handling and culturing al kinds of live organisms such as molds, bacteria, seedlings, plant cuttings, among others.

In this case, these tubes are made from polypropylene or polystyrene trough the injection molding technique. These tube types are disposable after use. In clinical medicine there is also a variety of tubes used to collect and hold samples of physiological fluids such as blood, urine, pus and synovial fluid. In addition, tubes are sometimes put to casual uses outside of lab environments, e.g. as flower vases, glassware for certain weak shots or containers for spices.

Centrifuge tubes

Centrifuge is the process where any specimens get their components separated in order to perform the required exams. The process is a spinning machine and one of its main device is a centrifuge tube. We are offering you 50 ml centrifugetubes come with High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) caps, a petroleum thermoplastic, resistant to high temperatures such as 120 degrees Celsius or 248 degrees Fahrenheit. This material has a high resistance to heat and diverse chemicals products. It is also very resistant to impact and it is very light weighted. Besides, these caps come in two different models: one is a flat cap and the other is a plug shaped cap.

These centrifuge tubes have another important feature. When it comes to storage and labeling process, it is very important to have tubes that come with space for that. This model has a large white marking strip so that it is easier to identify the samples inside the laboratory.  Another important feature is that the tubes come with white printed graduations. All of these facts make the 50 ml centrifuge tubes made from Polypropylene the ideal choice for the centrifuge process in any kind of laboratory.

You can find different kinds of tubes in our catalog. HERE
