Our 4 ml Polycarbonate Vials with Unlined Polypropylene Screw Caps are designed for high throughput homogenization of hard materials, such as seeds, lyophilized plant tissues, pills/tablets and similar dry samples. Unlike softer plastics, polycarbonate retains its rigidity and strength during bead beating. Extremely durable, polycarbonate vials can be submersed in liquid nitrogen and immediately used for cryogenic grinding. NOTE: Vials should be placed in Cryo-Blocks for cryogenic grinding.
Each vial has a working volume of 4 ml and is suitable for homogenizing up to 200 mg of sample. Recommended for use with 3/8” Stainless Steel Grinding Balls and 5/16” Stainless Steel Grinding Balls (not included).
Sold in cases of two hundred forty (240) 4 ml Polycarbonate Vials with Unlined Polypropylene Screw Caps.
