Falcon® Plastic Round Bottom Culture Tubes are the most widely referenced tubes. Falcon's industry leading high-quality plastic round-bottom culture tubes exceed researcher's requirements for ease-of-use, reliability, and versatility. These plastic culture tubes are manufactured in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility to meet rigorous quality standards. The tighter dimensional tolerances provide assurance for consistent reproducible performance in your assays.
Patented dual snap-cap enables both culturing and storage in the same tube. Leave it loose to allow for aerobic culturing while keeping your sample clean and sterile. When a tight closure is required, simply push down on the cap to obtain a leak-proof seal. This prevents leakage of your sample during handling and storage. It also prevents your sample from evaporating.
Use with Flow Cytometry
Tubes with more consistent inner tolerance, such as the Falcon 5 ml round-bottom tubes, reduce maintenance and wear of the Bal Seal® O-Ring resulting in less down time and costly repairs of valuable instruments.
Available in either crystal-clear polystyrene or chemical-resistant polypropylene
Choose cap-less, screw cap or dual-position snap cap
