SnapStrip® & UltraFlux® PCR Tubes

  • Angularly attached caps on the UltraFlux® i and SnapStrip® strip tubes prevent cap lids and hinges from interfering with each other, allowing for easier operation in an SBS format rack.

Ultra Thin Walls

  • Ultra thin walls ensure efficient thermal transfer and maximum yield, yet are strong enough to prevent crushing. SSI wall thickness is 0.25mm, similar to most brands.

Tube Color and Clarity

  • Clear tubes provide high clarity for visualizing contents.
