Real Performance. Real Tubes

We designed our SuperClear® centrifuge tubes to successfully meet your needs every time you use them. We test every lot of these tubes at a much higher g-force than we rate them to ensure that you can spin them safely. Our quality control team tests the seals with chloroform. So these don't just look like centrifuge tubes, they really are.

SuperClear® tubes are not only better when you use them, the process used to make them is better, helping reduce their environmental and social footprint. Patented.
