Dual Position Aspirating Closures
Our dual position tube closures are designed to seal Labcon SuperClear® round bottom tubes and allow you to set the cap in either an aspirating position or a liquid tight position. These caps are useful for culturing since the caps will allow gas exchange when set to aspirate. These closures are made from 100% virgin Class VI medical grade resin so you can be sure there is no contamination from the use of commodity grade plastics.
Unlike other closures these caps are medical grade and are lot tested and certified free of detectable Nuclease, Endotoxin, and ATP contamination.
Secure Closures for More Tubes
These closures are made from a USP class VI resin to ensure your work is safe and repeatable. And like our fluted plug style caps and overfit caps these closures will fit most brands of plastic and glass tubes.
Our aspirating dual position closures are packaged in Loose bags for ease of use or are available in packages with our SuperClear® round bottom tubes.
Dual position aspirating closures feature a Class VI polyethylene resin that wil seal on most plastic and glass tubes. These caps include a unique stepped design that gives you two options in one cap. You can set the cap to cover the tube but allow for gas exchange. Or you can push the closure all the way onto the tube until it seats and creates a liquid tight seal.
Available in 12x75mm and 17x100mm sizes that fit all standard glass and plastic tubes. These polyethylene closures are not autoclavable.
|Endotoxin Free (Non pyrogenic)
Product samples are exposed to endotoxin-free water and the resulting extraction fluid is tested for contamination using the kinetic turbidimetric Limulus Amoebocyte Lysate (LAL) assay protocol and USP guidelines. All products tested must display less than 0.05 EU/ml to be certified free of endotoxin.
|Nuclease Free (RNase/DNase)
Product samples are exposed to nuclease-free water and the resulting extraction fluid is tested for nuclease activity on commercially available 7.5 kb Poly(A) tailed RNA (1µg) and HindIII-digested DNA (1µg) with a one hour 37°C incubation in appropriate buffers. Results are visualized on an agarose gel with appropriate positive and negative controls. Extraction fluid samples must show no degradation of the nucleic acids by the extraction fluid has occurred for the product to be certified as RNase-free and DNase-free
|Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)
Product sample surfaces are tested for the presence of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) using a controlled bioluminescence reaction to detect contamination. Luminescence data is compared to results generated by ATP-free surfaces and surfaces with known amounts of ATP as a positive control. The relative light units result must indicate less than 2 X 10-12 mg/µl of ATP for the product to be certified as ATP free.
|Heavy Metals Free
Heavy metals have been tested for using the prescribed USP method and confirmed to have levels lower than 1 part per million (1ppm)
|Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy-Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy
These products contain resins that are processed under conditions proven to exceed the European Union standard as listed in the 22nd Commission Directive EC 98/16/EC of March 5th, 1998 as annexed to council Directive EC 76/768/EEC and further Amendment 419 Annex II of 12 June 2001.
|Medical Grade (USP)
