PerformR® Large Format Tubes

PerformR Large Tubes

PerformR® Large Tubes

Our large centrifuge tubes give you more performance and convenience than other brands of large centrifuge tubes. Made from a medical grade resin that is far cleaner and durable than commodity grade resins used in most other brands of tubes. This high quality resin is radiation stabilized so you can spin these tubes to 8,000 RCF. PerformR® large format tubes feature our exclusive elastomeric molded-in sealing caps that can be autoclaved.


PerformR® large format tubes were designed to give you the convenience of a disposable tube with the performance of a reusable tube.

Disposable Convenience. Reusable Performance.

PerformR® tubes are available packed in our exclusive 2 tube packs. This lets you use only what is needed. Each 2 tube package gives you a perfect balanced set for your rotor. Available in non sterile and sterile versions. All our sterile products use medical grade packaging and are radiation sterilized following a validated ISO 11137 method to a sterility assurance level of 10-6.

PerformR® large format centrifuge tubes are made from a medical grade resin that is far more clean and durable than commodity grade resins. These tubes are packaged two per bag in balanced user packages so you don't have to worry that they are non-sterile or contaminated when you want to use them. They feature molded in graduations, a labeling spot, and our exclusive flat cap with elastomeric sealing ring. And both 175mL and 225mL volumes are designed to fit common rotor adapters.


Large Format

Both 175mL and 225mL sizes are available in Sterile and Non-Sterile medical grade packaging and are radiation sterilized following a validated ISO 11137 medical grade process to a SAL of 10-6. So you don't have to limit use of these tubes to research applications.

Endotoxin Endtoxin 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.
RNase/DNase 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
ATP 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.
USP Metals 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)
Sterilization Validated Sterilization
Labcon products are sterilized by radiation sterilization within a dose range of 12-35 kGy. The dose range necessary for the stated sterility assurance level is continuously audited through quarterly bio-burden and sterility validation studies performed according to the ANSI/AAMI/ISO 11137 standard by an independent laboratory. This dosage is sufficient to guarantee a sterility assurance level of 10-6.
BSE/TSE 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.
USP Medical Grade (USP)
U.S Pharmacoepia Methods and Guidelines (U.S.P Class VI) are used if applicable. We only use medical grade resins and pre-test all resins for contaminants prior to use. Resins are compliant with FDA CFR title 21-177.1520, 178.3295, 178.3297.
Prop 65 California Prop 65
