Two mini all-rounders

New 5 ml reaction tubes

Greiner Bio-One GmbH, technology partner for the diagnostic and pharmaceutical industry, is unveiling its product innovations at Analytica 2018, the leading international trade fair for laboratory technology, analysis and biotechnology, in Munich.

This year’s exhibits include two new 5 ml reaction tubes. They are fitted with either a snap cap for fast opening and closing or a screw cap for secure sample storage. The external diameter and shape of the conical tubes correspond to standard 15 ml tubes, thus making them compatible with the respective laboratory equipment.

Reliable handling
The key advantage of this tube size is that the tube interior can be accessed without risk of con-tamination when pipetting standard volumes of samples. The tubes are made of ultraclear poly-propylene and also have frosted, writable surfaces, thereby ensuring reliable sample identification in day-to-day laboratory work. Sample integrity is ensured by using tested, resistant polypropyl-ene, and the user-friendliness is rounded off by resealable bags.
