Designed for storing biological material, human or animal cells, at temperatures as low as -196 °C (but should be used only in the gas phase of liquid nitrogen). The cap features a long skirt for one hand aseptic methods, and a super fast thread design that allows tightening or removal with a mere 11/4 turn, and an inside thread design that will not contribute to possible contamination. A specially designed lip inside the cap ensures a leakproof seal even at very low temperatures.
Closures and tubes are both made of polypropylene having the same coefficient of expansion, which further enhances the leakproof qualities of these vials at various temperatures.
Tubes are provided with a white marking area for sample identification and can be color coded by the use of a CAPINSERT™ (Series T312).
T309-2 can be centrifuged up to 17,000g.
Vials are sterilized by gamma radiation and are packaged in unique tamperproof, resealable, safety-lock bags of 100. Autoclavable.
Some models are freestanding with a lockable base, allowing opening and closing with one hand when the bottles are used on the Simport T315 work stand. The others have a round bottom which makes it possible to empty their contents completely and very easily.
