Eppendorf Tubes - standard ~ overview
Known to some as Eppendorf's Standard Micro Test Tube 3810X, the successor to Eppendorf's renowned Micro Test Tube 3810 continues to define PCR tube standards of excellence in the laboratory.
Known throughout the industry as as Eppendorf Tubes these combine the tried and tested features of the classic Eppendorf tube with new, invaluable features.
Excellent chemical stability
Optimal construction materials
Guaranteed better resistance to centrifugal force.
Eppendorf Tubes - standard ~ features
Flat, frosted lid and writing surface on body of tube offer generous labeling area
Easy to open and close thanks to improved lid geometry
Graduation from 0.1 ml to 1.5 ml on body of tube
Autoclavable when open (121°C, 20 min)
Can be centrifuged at up to 25,000 x g in fixed-angle rotor (up to 70,000 x g possible in swing-bucket rotor)
Eppendorf Tubes - standard ~ ordering
We have endeavoured to provide Australian catalogue numbers; however it would be prudent to verify any catalogue numbers taken straight from our site with POCD Scientific before using them to place an order.

The Tube Rack is ideal for sample processing and the short or medium-term storage of samples. As it can withstand temperatures as low as -80C, the rack can also be stored in a freezer. Tube racks are available for 0.5 ml test tubes as well as for 1.5 m-2.0 ml test tubes. Tube Racks can be stacked even when fully loaded and can be coupled to other racks on all sides. They are also UV-resistant and fully autoclavable and have labelling surfaces to assist identification.
Product features of Tube Rack
Capacity: 2 rows of 12 tubes

Eppendorf Tubes - standard ~ Frequently asked questions from Eppendorf
From what material are your micro test tubes manufactured?
All of our tubes are manufactured from polypropylene. The polypropylene we use fulfils the specifications of the FDA for the use of plastics for foodstuffs. No metal-based dyes are used.
Can the lid of the Standard Micro Test Tube 3810X be pierced as easily as that of the Safe-Lock micro test tube?
No. It is more easy to pierce a Safe-Lock Tube because of the thin membrane in the middle of the lid.
Can the Micro Test Tubes 3810X be stored for 3 months at 90 Â°C?
"Yes. The tube material could shrink somewhat, but this should have no negative effect on the tube seal. "
Do you offer siliconized micro test tubes?
"Our tube assortment does not include coated or siliconized tubes. In order to keep sample loss caused by the adsorption of sample material on the tube wall to a minimum, we recommend using the Eppendorf Protein LoBind Tubes or Eppendorf DNA LoBind Tubes. These are made of a special type of polypropylene and are manufactured under optimized process conditions. " POCDS also recommends Simport low retention low binding 0.6ml 1.5ml 2.0ml Microcentrifuge Tubes which have a low adhesion surface which reliably gives optimum sample yields.
What is the life expectancy of Eppendorf micro test tubes?
At least 5 years at a storage temperature of +5 to +35 Â°C.
Do your micro test tubes contain heavy metals?
Lead, cadmium, mercury, etc. are well below the prescribed limits of the DIN norm. In the course of the production process it is impossible to avoid the smallest quantities of metal resulting from machine friction.
Can Eppendorf micro test tubes be sterilized with ethylene oxide?
"Yes, this is possible. Please note that the micro test tubes have to be taken out of the packaging for sterilization.
In addition, please note that some ethylene oxide will remain in the material after sterilization. "
Can your micro test tubes be frozen at -80 Â°C?
Yes. Please refer to the operating manual.
Can your micro test tubes be coated with acrylic resin within the framework of a UV polymerization?
"Yes, the tubes can withstand UV polymerization. However, we cannot give you any instructions for the procedure."
Can contamination of micro test tubes by bacterial endotoxin be inactivated by autoclaving?
"No. Bacterial endotoxins (lipopolysaccharide, LPS) are very stable and withstand normal autoclaving at 121 Â°C. To inactivate LPS, the objects have to be baked at 250 Â°C, which, of course, is not possible with plastics."
Which Eppendorf micro test tubes are free of DNA?
"All micro test tubes designated with "PCR clean" are free of human DNA, DNase, RNase and PCR inhibitors.
Our Safe-Lock micro test tubes are also available in the "Eppendorf Biopur" purity standard. Due to the special manufacturing processes and the individual blister-packaging, Biopur products are certified "DNA free"."
What level of protein binding affinity do your micro test tubes demonstrate?
Our micro test tubes are used both in the proteomics area and for storage and transport of many different protein solutions. If you work with low protein concentrations, we recommend using the Eppendorf Protein LoBind Tubes. These tubes are made of a special type of polypropylene and are manufactured under optimized process conditions. In comparison to standard polypropylene tubes, these tubes therefore demonstrate a considerably lower affinity to proteins.
How do you define the temperature entry "RT", for example, as a storage condition for your micro test tubes?
"Definition of RT (room temperature): +5 to +35 Â°C."
What is the best way to label Eppendorf micro test tubes?
"The micro test tube should be clean and free from grease and only labeled on the space provided. Water-resistant felt pens from Steadtler S and F, in black, are the most suitable for this. The writing should be left to dry for at least 2 min."
