Biomedical Polymers Centrifuge Bottles
* Available with standard caps for low-speed work and sealing caps for high-speed applications
* Sealing caps have a built-in gripper to facilitate removal from the rotor
* Extra thick walls for durability-resistant to most chemicals
* Wide mouth design makes filling and decanting easier
These precision molded centrifuge bottles are available in polycarbonate or polypropylene. For low speed applications the bottles provide excellent value for large volume/large batch centrifugation procedures. Bottles with standard caps provide reliable performance up to 8250 xg (7400 xg for the 1 L size) in swinging bucket and fixed angle rotors. For high-speed work, the easy-to-use Noryl® sealing caps with silicone 0-rings enable leak-free processing at high centrifugal forces over long durations. Bottles must be filled to 80% of capacity.
Centrifuge bottles may be autoclaved at 121°C at 15 psi for 20 minutes. Caps should be placed on the bottles without engaging the threads. Bottles are qualified to the rated g-forces using Sorvall® and Fiberlight® high-speed rotors, tested at 20°C, with bottles filled to 80% of capacity.
