Microcentrifuge Tubes Size Guide

Microcentrifuge Tubes Size Guide


Micro-centrifuge tubing refers to small tubes used in micro-centrifuges for various laboratory applications, particularly in the fields of molecular biology, biochemistry, and microbiology. These tubes are designed to withstand high centrifugal forces generated during centrifugation while safely containing and preserving the samples.

Key features of micro-centrifuge tubing include:

  • Size: Micro-centrifuge tubes are typically small in size, with capacities ranging from a few hundred microliters to a couple of milliliters. They are designed to accommodate small volumes of liquid samples, such as DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, or cell suspensions.
  • Material: Micro-centrifuge tubes are commonly made of polypropylene, a durable and chemically resistant plastic material. Polypropylene tubes are compatible with a wide range of chemicals and biological substances commonly used in laboratory experiments.
  • Cap: These tubes usually come with tight-fitting caps or lids to seal the contents securely and prevent leakage or contamination. The caps may have various designs, including screw caps, snap caps, or push caps, depending on the specific application and user preferences.
  • Graduations: Many micro-centrifuge tubes feature volume graduations or markings on the side, allowing users to accurately measure and dispense liquid samples directly into the tubes. These graduations help ensure precise sample volumes and minimize the need for additional measuring devices.
  • Centrifugation Compatibility: Micro-centrifuge tubes are designed to withstand high centrifugal forces generated by micro-centrifuges without deforming or breaking. They are often rated for specific maximum centrifugation speeds (in revolutions per minute or g-forces) to ensure safe operation during centrifugation.
  • Temperature Stability: Micro-centrifuge tubes are typically capable of withstanding a wide range of temperatures, including both freezing and elevated temperatures. This makes them suitable for various sample preparation and storage applications, including cryogenic storage and thermal cycling.
  • Sterility Options: Some micro-centrifuge tubes are available in sterile formats for applications requiring aseptic handling and storage of biological samples. Sterile tubes are often individually packaged and sterilized using methods such as gamma irradiation or autoclaving.

Overall, micro-centrifuge tubing plays a crucial role in sample preparation, processing, and storage in laboratory settings. They provide a convenient and reliable means of handling small volumes of liquid samples for a wide range of molecular and cellular biology applications.
