- Available with standard caps for low-speed work and sealing caps for high-speed applications. Sealing caps have a built-in gripper to facilitate removal from the rotor.
- Extra thick walls for durability resistance to most chemicals
- Wide mouth design makes filling and decanting easier
These precision-molded centrifuge bottles are available in polycarbonate or polypropylene. For low speed applications, the bottles provide excellent value for large volume/large batch centrifugation procedures. Bottles with standard caps provide reliable performance up to 8250 xg (7400 xg for the 1 L size) in swinging bucket and fixed angle rotors. For high-speed work, the easy-to-use Noryl® sealing caps with silicone 0-rings enable leak-free processing at high centrifugal forces over long durations. Bottles must be filled to 80% of capacity.
Centrifuge bottles may be autoclaved at 121°C at 15 psi for 20 minutes. Caps should be placed on the bottles without engaging the threads. Bottles are qualified to the rated g-forces using Sorvall® and Fiberlight® high-speed rotors, tested at 20°C, with bottles filled to 80% of capacity.
Failure to use the correct rotor cushion or adapter will shorten the life of the bottle and may prevent achievement of the maximum rated RCF and/or bottle failure. Prolonged autoclaving and reuse may cause stress cracks, crazing or bottle discoloration.
