Our convenient, ready-to-use, 15 ml Polycarbonate Vial Sets with Lined Caps are intended for researchers who require pooled samples for analysis and those homogenizing larger samples. Solvent-resistant polyethylene-lined polypropylene caps are recommended for researchers wet grinding with solvents or buffers. The vials are extremely durable and can be submersed in liquid nitrogen and immediately used for cryogenic grinding, making them ideal for homogenizing several grams of tissue and other difficult-to-grind samples.
Each 15 ml Polycarbonate Vial Set contains:
5 15 ml Polycarbonate Vials
5 Lined Caps
10 pre-cleaned 7/16” 440C stainless steel grinding balls (2 per vial)
1 foam holder
1 polyethylene storage box
To use, simply detach the lid from the storage box, remove the caps, add sample and buffer (if desired), replace the caps, and place the entire storage box, without the lid, onto the homogenizer platform for ambient processing. (NOTE: Vials should be placed in Cryoblocks for cryogenic grinding).
Sold in cases of ten vial sets (equal to 50 pre-loaded vials). Replacement vials may be purchased separately.
