Our 2.0 mL, screw cap with o-ring seal, microcentrifuge vials are made of inert polypropylene and have straight walls with a sharp conical bottom. This vial shape is required for the Mini-Beadbeater-1 and recommended for the Mini-Beadbeater-8 and Mini-Beadbeater-96. These vials are available sterile or non-sterile.
For extraction and cell disruption of larger sample volumes which cannot be accommodated in a 2 mL microvials, we also offer 7 mL polypropylene vials. These vials include screw caps and, when combined with the appropriate adapter, can be used with the Mini-Beadbeater-8, Mini-Beadbeater-16, or Mini-Beadbeater-96.
