The possibility of extractables being leached out of polypropylene tubes by aqueous or organic solvents is a major concern to many organizations looking to safeguard their valuable stored samples from contamination.
In the tests, samples of Micronic polypropylene sample storage tubes were extracted with 10% absolute ethanol in ultrapure water and the extract was then analysed using highly sensitive GC-FID and GC-MS instrumentation. Results, included in the report, demonstrate a complete absence of organic contaminants in the samples extracted from the Micronic polypropylene sample storage tubes.
Manufactured from only the highest purity virgin polypropylene in a certified Class 7 cleanroom production facility, Micronic sample storage tubes are completely free from extractible contaminants often found in lower grade storage tubes. As a consequence, the integrity of your stored samples, over even extended periods of time, is assured.
