Cat. No. 2007, 1.8 ml stainless steel (type 305) microvials. Polyethylene flange caps are included. Package size: 100 pieces
Stainless Steel Microvials have the same outer dimensions and weight as standard 2 ml microvials. They can be sealed with polyethylene flange caps, silicone rubber stopper caps or crimped septa caps.
NOTE! Special Silicone Rubber Caps are required when beadbeating dry or hard frozen samples using steel beads in these Stainless Steel Microvials, or when grinding tissue samples at liquid nitrogen temperatures.
The silicone rubber caps are specifically designed for use with the 2 ml stainless steel microvials. Due to the high shaking energy of the Mini-BeadBeater series of cell disrupters, steel beads can break though the standard polyethylene flange caps that are supplied with the stainless steel vials.
