SnapTec® - Single-handed operation for fast and safe sample handling

SPONSORED BY: Eppendorf

The new Eppendorf Conical Tube SnapTec 50 offers all the advantages of classic conical tubes 50 mL. The decisive, innovative detail is the SnapTec closure. A snap-on lid that can be opened and closed with one hand and is firmly attached to the vessel so that it does not come into contact with the laboratory bench. The risk of cross-contamination is reduced and confusion with other lids is eliminated. In addition, the SnapTec 50 vessel is autoclavable, which opens up further application possibilities. Its precise dimensions ensure maximum compatibility with centrifuge rotors, mixers and shakers.

Typical applications for conical tubes are mainly found in cell culture, bacterial culture, and protein or DNA/RNA extraction. Most important in these applications is contamination-free handling and a smooth workflow. Fast and safe opening and closing as well as autoclavability of such vessels contribute significantly to meeting these requirements. Less can be more sometimes. The guaranteed nominal volume of the Eppendorf Conical Tubes SnapTec 50 is - due to technical reasons - 45 mL which covers more than 75 % of all its main applications. This new tube is available in Eppendorf Quality™, PCR clean and Sterile (free of pyrogens, DNase, RNase, human and bacterial DNA). More information on Eppendorf conicals click here.
