Designed for storing biological material, human or animal cells, at temperatures as low as -196ºC but should be used only in the gas phase of liquid nitrogen. The cap features a long skirt for one hand aseptic methods, a super fast thread design that allows tightening or removal with a mere 1¼ turn, and an inside thread design that will not contribute to possible contamination. But this cap also features an exclusive silicone seal fitted inside of the cap to ensure a positive seal at any temperature, even the lowest of cryogenic temperatures.A specially designed lip inside the cap ensures a leakproof seal for the CRYOVIAL® even at very low temperatures.
The closures and tubes are both manufactured of polypropylene having the same coefficient of expansion, which further enhances the leakproof qualities of these vials at changing temperatures. Tubes are provided with a white marking area for sample identification and can be color coded by using a CAPINSERT™ (Series T312). However, please note that no CAPINSERT™ is available for model T310-10A.
The Simport CRYOVIAL® is compatible with most storage systems. Only the round bottom vial can be centrifuged, and up to 17,000g. Vials are sterilized by gamma radiation and are packaged in unique tamperproof, resealable, safety-lock bags of 100.
