PerformR® Centrifuge Tubes
Our PerformR® centrifuge tubes combine reliable performance in major centrifuges. Spin rates higher than most popular brands. And high quality lab certified non cyto-toxic medical grade resin. With PerformR® you don't have to compromise your work with low quality tubes. Our PerformR® Centrifuge Tubes are developed using our own in-house laboratory and tested in real labs in most basic centrifuging procedures.
PerformR® tubes are available in packaging styles for all your needs, including our reusable polypropylene racks, sterile bulk bags, and non-sterile bulk bags. All our sterile products use medical grade packaging and are radiation sterilized following a validated ISO 11137 method to a sterility assurance level of 10-6.
PerformR® Centrifuge tubes are designed for your everyday centrifugation and storage needs. These tubes include large white solvent resistant labeling areas and black easy to read graduations. They are available with either a flat cap that is easy to label or a plug style cap for horizontal applications. All package versions are sterilized with a validated and approved ISO 11137 medical grade method to an SAL of 10-6. So you aren't restricted to research use only like many lesser tubes. Racked tubes are packaged in a reusable, autoclavable, and freezable (-80°C) polypropylene rack that inter-locks to allow you to create a workstation.
You can order these tubes with a flat cap that can easily be labeled or a plug style cap that includes a very deep sealing area. The flat style caps are designed to allow you to seal them to an evaporation seal with ¾ turn for one-handed operation. And then a final ¼ turn will seal them liquid tight.
PerformR® tubes are available in packaging styles for standard lab needs, including our reusable polypropylene racks, sterile bulk bags, and non-sterile bulk bags.
|Endotoxin Free (Non pyrogenic)
Product samples are exposed to endotoxin-free water and the resulting extraction fluid is tested for contamination using the kinetic turbidimetric Limulus Amoebocyte Lysate (LAL) assay protocol and USP guidelines. All products tested must display less than 0.05 EU/ml to be certified free of endotoxin.
|Nuclease Free (RNase/DNase)
Product samples are exposed to nuclease-free water and the resulting extraction fluid is tested for nuclease activity on commercially available 7.5 kb Poly(A) tailed RNA (1µg) and HindIII-digested DNA (1µg) with a one hour 37°C incubation in appropriate buffers. Results are visualized on an agarose gel with appropriate positive and negative controls. Extraction fluid samples must show no degradation of the nucleic acids by the extraction fluid has occurred for the product to be certified as RNase-free and DNase-free
|Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)
Product sample surfaces are tested for the presence of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) using a controlled bioluminescence reaction to detect contamination. Luminescence data is compared to results generated by ATP-free surfaces and surfaces with known amounts of ATP as a positive control. The relative light units result must indicate less than 2 X 10-12 mg/µl of ATP for the product to be certified as ATP free.
|Heavy Metals Free
Heavy metals have been tested for using the prescribed USP method and confirmed to have levels lower than 1 part per million (1ppm)
Labcon products are sterilized by radiation sterilization within a dose range of 12-35 kGy. The dose range necessary for the stated sterility assurance level is continuously audited through quarterly bio-burden and sterility validation studies performed according to the ANSI/AAMI/ISO 11137 standard by an independent laboratory. This dosage is sufficient to guarantee a sterility assurance level of 10-6.
|Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy-Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy
These products contain resins that are processed under conditions proven to exceed the European Union standard as listed in the 22nd Commission Directive EC 98/16/EC of March 5th, 1998 as annexed to council Directive EC 76/768/EEC and further Amendment 419 Annex II of 12 June 2001.
|Medical Grade (USP)
U.S Pharmacoepia Methods and Guidelines (U.S.P Class VI) are used if applicable. We only use medical grade resins and pre-test all resins for contaminants prior to use. Resins are compliant with FDA CFR title 21-177.1520, 178.3295, 178.3297.
