Plastic Tubes

  • Made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET)
  • Provide a safer work environment for all personnel by (1) reducing risk of tube breakage during handling; (2) eliminating breakage when tubes are centrifuged at higher speeds; and (3) eliminating breakage or chipping of tube rims when stopper is removed and reinserted
  • In addition to reducing potential injuries, fewer tube breakages result in less workflow interruption and fewer patient redraws, thus providing smoother day-to-day operation
  • Documented reliability in hospital, commercial and research laboratories
