micronic tubesA new technical study from Micronic reports on tests done to demonstrate the absence of extractable organic contaminants in their polypropylene sample storage tubes.

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.
