SuperClear® Microcentrifuge Tubes
Our SuperClear® snap cap microcentrifuge tubes feature an extra thick and durable wall that can withstand centrifugation to 20,000 x G. And since these tubes use one of our pre-tested resins you don't have to worry about extractables in the resin that can interfere with your ability to detect DNA.
SuperClear® tubes feature a higher spin rate and USP class VI resins to ensure your work is safe and repeatable. Labcon SuperClear® Snap Cap Micro Tubes were developed using our own in-house laboratory and tested in real labs.
Real Tubes, Real Safety, Real Performance
The ability to extract DNA from samples and then amplify that DNA with reliable results is an important part of lab work. SuperClear® tubes were designed with this in mind. They can be trusted to spin at high rates. They can be opened and closed easily many times to add or remove reagents. The interior surfaces are ultra-smooth with low retention. They are clear enough to be used in a spectrophotometer and have no extractables at the wavelength ranges you use to detect DNA.
Lab testing confirms the superior performance of SuperClear® tubes in light transmission compared to popular brands. SuperClear® tubes are more than twice as effective at transmitting light than most brands of micro centrifuge tubes.
SuperClear® tubes feature an extra thick and durable wall that can withstand centrifugation to 20,000 x G. The ultra clear polypropylene resin gives you a clear view of the pellet as well as correct color rendition. Designed with ergonomic caps and smooth surfaces that make this tube easy to open and can help reduce the potential for repetitive strain injury. The cap also includes a special 90° hinge that self-aligns the cap and makes it easier to close while one-handed pipetting.
Available in 0.5, 1.5mL, and 2.0mL sizes that fit all standard and high capacity rotors. Tubes have flat piercable caps and a side writing surface. Autoclavable and freezable. In resealable medical grade bags. Graduated.
|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)
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.
|Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy-Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy
