Glass and plastic tubes designed for use in centrifuges; available in a variety of volume capacities, materials, configurations, RCF ratings, and closure types; may be sterile or non-sterile; may have graduations indicating volume on the tube.
Tested to withstand centrifugation of 16,000 RCF in a fully supported rotor with room temperature water. Corning™ Falcon 50mL Conical Centrifuge Tubes are ideal for cell centrifugation; pelleting; separation by density gradients.
Use these tubes for centrifugation up to 2980 RCF. KIMAX™ Conical-Bottom Glass Centrifuge Tubes are plastic shrink-wrapped in modular trays for cleanliness and safety. Manufactured from 51 expansion, low extractable borosilicate glass.
Tested to withstand centrifugation of 12,000 RCF (polypropylene) or 1,800 RCF (polystyrene) in a fully supported rotor with room temperature water. Corning™ Falcon™ 15mL Conical Centrifuge Tubes are ideal for cell centrifugation; pelleting; separation by density gradients.
Features CentriStar™ caps with an easy-on/easy-off flat top and offers advanced ergonomics with wider knurls and roll-over edge design for easier gripping. Corning™ Centrifuge Tubes with CentriStar™ Caps leak-proof design comes with a revolutionary plug feature that virtually eliminates all seepage when used under recommended conditions.
KIMAX™ tube used in the determination of water and sediment in crude mineral oils, fuel oils and petroleum products; of precipitate formed by centrifuging definite quantities of steam cylinder stocks, black oils and lubricating oils; and in testing for acidity of distillation residues or hydrocarbon liquids of gasoline/petroleum solvents.
KIMAX™ tube used for the determination of small quantities of solids in large volumes of liquids. Recommended for the determination of free water and sediment in diesel and other distillate fuels, as a pass-fail indication of product quality (ASTM D2709).
