There are different types of tests that can be performed in a laboratory. From blood-samples to centrifuge process, those are common procedures.  Experiments with flies are becoming regular in labs due to the researches that are trying to find cures for different diseases. The reason is that drosophila flies are a very easy species to handle, test and reproduce. That is why we are presenting you with this drosophila vials. The ideal containers for transport, handling and flies conservation. This is a mandatory item among your lab ware.

Drosophila is a genus of flies that belongs to the Drosophilidae family and they are often known as the “fruit flies”.  These flies are laboratory-cultured animals because they are easily cultured in masse out of the wild, have a short generation time and mutant animals are readily obtainable. Drosophila flies are widely used in studies of genetics, embryogenesis, and other areas that have helped in the past to discovery cure for important diseases. That is the reason why flies studies are becoming an important deal inside a lab, especially the research ones.


Drosophila vials

These vials are the item you need to have in your lab when it comes to drosophila research. The materials these vials are made from are polystyrene and polypropylene. This last material is a thermoplastic that is very common in a wide variety of applications such as packaging for consumer products. Actually, is one of the most commonly produced plastics in the world. This material has the chemical resistance this type of tubes need. On the other hand, polystyrene is a thermoplastic polymer, a very common material in laboratory ware due to its transparency and ease of sterilization.

In the case of polystyrene vials, they have a glass-like clarity, which gives them excellent visibility when they have a sample inside, being this a great feature inside your lab. On the other hand, polypropylene drosophila vials are autoclavable, with the non-breakable feature, they offer a good visual of the sample and they save you money. Both of these model designs have a flat bottom and straight walls.

You should know that these drosophila vials come in two different measurements 28,5x95mm and 25x95mm. About the packaging, you have the option of getting them in a bulk or in a convenient tray pack with a 25 vials capacity.
