There are many benefits to using a cryotube for scientific purposes. This article will inform you about how to use cryotubes, provide information about the advantages of using them and offer usage safety tips.
Cryogenic storage vials provide high quality and reliable sample storage options for research, cell culture, biobanking and many other samples. You can choose from a wide variety of options including internal or external thread. Self-standing vials have a special design that allows them to be locked into 5151K49 and K53 workstations. The easy-to-use system is ideal for freezing bacterial cultures that you can retrieve and use later. Details about the many benefits of using cryotubes are below.
•They are reliable.
•They are convenient.
•The system for storing and preserving is less expensive compared to other methods.
•Unique storage boxes are available.
•There is an organism reference grid printed on each lid for easy indexing.
•Cryotubes are suitable for all microbiology labs that deal with bacteria.
The vials are designed for ease of use and sample integrity in extremely low temperature storage. The closure seals do not have gaskets or O-rings so that contamination is minimized. They have deep skirt closures which allow you to perform a single-handed aseptic technique without exposing your fingers to the content of the vial. The Ribs around the bottoms interlock with wells in the Cryovial Racks to prevent turning. Another great feature is the vials and their closures are pre-assembled and sterilized with radiation. They have a white marking area, a fill line and graduations that are printed on the side. These vials are designed for storage of biological material as well as human or animal cells at temperatures as low as -196 °C. The specialized caps are made of an exclusive silicone washer that is fitted inside the cap. You can use an autoclave rack to store up to 50 cryogenic vials. There is an innovative universal locking system in which the vials will lock into each well securely and each position is identified by an index. The rack has sturdy handles that make it easy and safe to carry. It is stackable and other features include anti-skid rubber feet and three colors.
A cryotube is just one of many clinical and diagnostic- products that help laboratories to increase their capacity to analyze and manage workloads that are constantly changing. Cryogenic vials are designed for research ranging from crime labs to field investigations. Appropriate safety equipment is very important when working in a lab. Never use cryogenic vials for storage in the liquid phase of liquid nitrogen. Always use gloves, a face shield, biological safety cabinets and hoods in the lab. Keep in mind that even with gloves, contact with cold liquids should be for a very short period of time. Another safety precaution is to make sure that your storage apace is in a well-ventilated area.
