Culture Tube Closures and Caps

Caps & Stoppers

T401 Caps & Stoppers

Plug type push-in caps and 2-position snap caps are made of polyethylene for test tubes with outside diameters from 12 to 17mm.

Dual position caps offer two possibilities: the closed but unsealed position where samples are maintained aerobic for microbiological procedures; and the fully sealed position where the cap is pushed tight to seal the tube for anaerobic use or for storage, transfer and centrifuge applications.

17mm plug type caps (Series T401-10) are also for use with the Simport 15mL centrifuge tube series T408.

Packed in bags of 1000 caps.

T402 VACUCAP™ Tube Closures

An economical way to recap blood drawing tubes, disposable glass test tubes and plastic culture tubes. Flexible VACUCAP™closures protect from aerosols of highly infectious microorganisms. They guard samples against cross-contamination and laboratory work areas against infection and spillage. Precision molded from low-density polyethylene, with a double-flanged seal, VACUCAP™ clamps firmly on the tube. VACUCAP™ holds fast under most rigorous procedures, including centrifugation. Not suitable for autoclaving.

Designed for easy-on, easy-off use, due to the exclusive Dual Thumb Tab. Cap removal is simple and quick . VACUCAP™ closure is ideal for recapping most 13mm, OD and 16mm evacuated glass blood collection tubes. 13mm style can also be used on most 12mm plastic test tubes.

Seven colors give you at-a-glance sample identification and enable you to match original stopper color. Packed in bags of 1000 closures.

T407 Pierce-It™ Closure

These disposable closures produce a firm, leak-resistant seal for glass and plastic tubes.  They will protect samples from evaporation and contamination.  They can be easily applied and removed with one hand.  They can be punctured to allow through-cap sampling via closed-tube instrumentation systems.  Will not interfere with most common chemistry, coag, and drug monitoring methodologies.
They can be stored in the refrigerator, in the freezer, or at room temperature.  They even withstand agitation in a test tube Vortex mixer.  Two sizes, 12-13 and 16 mm fit a variety of tubes including glass evacuated blood drawing tubes.  Available in 8 colors for easy identification.
