Greiner Bio-One offers a comprehensive range of tubes and multipurpose beakers for various applications.
The products are available in different materials, with and without caps and with labelling options.

Our tubes are made of different materials: Polystyrene (PS) is ideally suited for optical measurements as a result of its high clarity. Polypropylene (PP) is recommended for the storage of chemical and biological samples due to its thermal, mechanical and chemical resistance.

Our wide range of laboratory tubes and multipurpose beakers

Greiner Bio-One tubes without closure are available with round bottom. In addition, it is possible to order appropriate closures in the form of grip stoppers.

  • With round bottom
  • Available in polystyrene or polypropylene

Greiner Bio-One tubes with closure are available with round or with conical bottom as well as with or without skirt. They are available in sterile or non-sterile versions. The product range is completed by tubes with a two-position cap. This special cap enables ventilation or an airtight closure of the tube, depending on the position of the stopper.

Different separation techniques can be used to enrich and subsequently investigate certain components (DNA, RNA, proteins, cells etc.) specifically from complex biological mixtures such as cell and tissue homogenates, blood or urine. The separation of cells by density gradient centrifugation is one of the most often used methods. Leucosep has been developed for optimal separation of lymphocytes and other peripheral blood mononuclear cells (so-called PBMCs) from human whole blood and bone marrow by means of density gradient centrifugation. The key feature of Leucosep is the porous barrier incorporated into the centrifuge tube made of highly translucent polypropylene. The porous barrier allows rapid sample loading over the density gradient medium, saving significant time during sample preparation. Similarly, OncoQuick® is a simple-to-use, rapid and efficient system for the enrichment of circulating tumour cells that are released into the blood by a solid epithelial tumour or malignant melanoma. OncoQuick® combines the advantages of cell separation by density gradient centrifugation with recovery rates that are comparable with immunobead methods.

  • Leucosep for the separation of lymphocytes/mononuclear cells from blood/bone marrow
  • OncoQuick® for the enrichment of disseminated, circulating tumour cells from peripheral blood

Multipurpose containers or beakers can be used for a variety of different applications. They can be applied universally for academic and non-human medical purposes. Multipurpose containers are made of polystyrene or polypropylene and are available in different sizes. They feature either plastic or metal caps and can be supplied with or without plain or printed label. Containers for plant culture are made of a very clear material which ensures maximum light transmission and thus rapid and successful growth of plant cultures. These culture containers are not only suitable for the proliferation of plant cultures but can also be used as transport containers and are available with or without lids. Our drosophila containers are ideally suited for the cultivation of Drosophila melanogaster. The lower part of the container is made of polystyrene. Drosophila containers can be supplied with a ceaprene plug that can be ordered separately. This stopper is gas-permeable and made of water-repellent material.

  • Polystyrene containers for plant culture
  • Polystyrene drosophila containers

Workflow & application purposes

In the laboratory, the efficiency of sample handling and preparation can make a difference. Tubes and multipurpose beakers are essential products that play a pivotal role in a wide range of applications, facilitating sample preparation, centrifugation, and storage.
Greiner Bio-One tubes are engineered to resist various temperature conditions and experimental requirements, ensuring the safety and integrity of your samples. The compatibility with various centrifuge models and rotor types streamlines sample processing, reducing experimental time. Precise volume markings and transparency of materials enable easy monitoring of sample levels and accurate measurements. With labeled and color-coded options, our products facilitate easy sample identification and organization within the laboratory.
