Convenient, ready-to-use, and designed for labs using solvents incompatible with polycarbonate (e.g., Trizol and TRI Reagent), our 24 Well Polyethylene Vial Sets with Lined Caps are a practiced alternative. Resistant to many solvents that melt polycarbonate, cost-effective Polyethylene Vial Sets are suitable for high throughput homogenization of most small seeds and animal tissue. Polyethylene-Lined Polypropylene Caps are recommended for wet grinding with buffers or solvents.
NOTE: Polyethylene Vials are relatively pliable compared to Polycarbonate Vials and are not as effective when used on large, hard samples (e.g., corn kernels). Polycarbonate Vials are also preferred for cryogenic grinding.
Each vial has a working volume of 4 ml and is suitable for homogenizing up to 200 mg of sample.
Each 24 Well Polyethylene Vial Set contains:
24 4 ml Polyethylene Vials
24 Lined Polypropylene Screw Caps
24 pre-cleaned 3/8" 440C stainless steel grinding balls
1 foam vial holder in SBS format
1 polyethylene storage box
To use, simply detach the lid from the storage box, remove the caps, add sample and buffer (if desired) to the vials, tighten the caps, and place the storage box, without lid, onto the homogenizer platform for ambient processing.
Sold in cases of ten vial sets (equal to 240 pre-loaded vials). Replacement vials may be purchased separately.
