Centrifuge Bottles

Available with standard caps for low-speed work and sealing caps for high-speed applications-sealing caps have a built-in gripper to facilitate removal from the rotor.

  • Extra thick walls for durability resistant to most chemicals
  • Wide mouth design makes filling and decanting easier

These precision molded centrifuge bottles are available in polycarbonate or polypropylene. For low-speed applications the bottles provide excellent value for large volume/large batch centrifugation procedures. Bottles with standard caps provide reliable performance up to 8250 xg in swinging bucket and fixed angle rotors. For high-speed work, the easy-to-use Noryl® (Noryl® is a registered trademark of General Electric Company) sealing caps with silicone O-rings enable leak-free processing at high centrifugal forces over long durations. Bottles must be filled to 80% of capacity. Centrifuge bottles may be autoclaved at 121ºC at 15 psi for 20 minutes. Caps should be placed on the bottles without engaging the threads. Bottles are qualified to the rated g-forces using Sorvall® (Sorvall® is a registered trademark of Kendro Laboratory Products) and Fiberlite® (Fiberlite® is a registered trademark of Piramoon Technologies Inc.) high-speed rotors, tested at 20ºC, with bottles filled to 80% of capacity. Failure to use the correct rotor cushion or adapter will shorten the life of the bottle and may prevent achievement of the maximum rated RCF and/or bottle failure. Prolonged autoclaving and reuse may cause stress cracks, crazing or bottle discoloration.
