Draw Volume and Shelf Life Changes

 

To address these potential risks with precautionary measures, some changes have been made in the draw volumes and shelf life of selected gel tubes. It has therefore been decided to change the draw volume in all our 13x75 4ml gel tubes to a 3.5ml draw, while the new shelf life will be 15 months for these tubes.

This change will increase the amount of headspace in our tubes thereby increasing the overall robustness of the tubes. This is also in line with tubes from competitors, as these specific tubes generally offer a draw volume of 3.5ml.

Affected products are:
