Tubes are made of the following materials:
- Polystyrene: Is ideally suited for optical measurements as a result of its high clarity.
- Polypropylene: Displays high thermal, mechanical and chemical resistance. It is therefore recommended for the storage of chemical and biological samples.
- Polyethylene: Is characterised by high thermal and chemical resistance.
The range of tubes available:
- with round or conical bottom
- with or without skirt
- in sterile or non-sterile version
In addition, it is possible to order appropriate closures in the form of grip stoppers and screw caps.
The product range is completed by tubes with a two-position vent stopper. This special stopper enables ventilation or an airtight closure of the tube, depending on the position of the stopper.
