Foil Saving. UV Blocking

Our Amber UVSafe™ centrifuge tubes block 100% of UV wavelengths. You can use them instead of wrapping tubes with foil. We also designed them to pass visible light so you can still see your samples.

We developed these tubes in our own lab to block ultraviolet light. You can still see the sample inside unlike some other black tubes.
