Thermo Scientific Sterilin containers are suitable for molecular biology, genomic and forensic applications

Thermo Scientific Sterilin containers For the rigorous requirements of molecular biology, genomic and forensic research facilities, new universal containers are specifically lot tested and certified to be free from RNase, DNase, human DNA and pyrogens.

Thermo Scientific Sterilin quality-assured containers are aseptically manufactured under controlled, automated cleanroom conditions. The containers are designed for the safe handling of valuable or potentially hazardous samples, reducing the potential for contamination that could adversely affect analytical results.

“With the tremendous growth in molecular biology, genomic and forensic research applications to support clinical diagnostic developments, laboratories are under increasing pressure to ensure safe, contamination-free handling of specimens,” said Eric Roman, president, laboratory products, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “This is why we’ve developed these new containers with sample safety, versatility and ergonomics in mind. Even the most sensitive samples can now be handled with maximum safety using the irradiated sterile variants of the innovative new Sterilin range of containers.”

The new clear containers are manufactured with robust polypropylene and are compliant with 95kPa pressure requirements at ambient temperatures specified for the transport of diagnostic specimens. In addition, the containers are designed for excellent leak-free performance in accordance with BS EN 14254 Annexe D leakage test requirements, potentially minimizing sample loss and the associated costs.

The Sterilin containers can accommodate a convenient working sample volume of up to 25 mL, ideal for a broad range of general laboratory applications, from sample handling to centrifugation. They are suitable for use in general purpose and small bench centrifuges and can be centrifuged to a maximum relative centrifugal force of 9,500 x g, depending on the specific rotor type, temperature or reagents.

The new containers are also ergonomically designed, featuring a convenient self-standing conical base and a practical half-turn Quickstart cap for easier handling. Each container has a unique lot number for traceability.
