Microtubes

Microtubes

Argos offers a complete family of products to keep your samples, reagents and solutions safe. Unlike amber tinted tubes, these products are completely opaque, therefore protecting even the most light sensitive compounds. Argos LiteSafe tubes eliminate the inconvenience of fitting tubes with aluminum foil to protect samples. Ideal for use with fluorescent probes or ethidium bromide.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Black Centrifuge Tubes

0.5mL and 1.5mL microtubes are RNase and DNase free.

0.5 & 1.5mL Microcentrifuge Tubes
Made of medical grade polypropylene, LiteSafe microcentrifuge tubes can be stored at temperatures down to -100°C and spun up to 15,000g’s. Click-fit cap provides tight seal to prevent accidental opening during centrifugation. Autoclavable.

15 & 50mL Centrifuge Tubes
Disposable polypropylene tubes with recessed HDPE lid to prevent leaking. Frosted writing surface allows for permanent identification and labeling. Tubes are sterile and RNase/DNase free. Can be stored in freezers to -100°C.
 
 
 
 
5mL Microcentrifuge Tubes

Manufactured in polypropylene, this tube will withstand autoclaving (120°C for 15 minutes at 15 psi), boiling and centrifuging to 5,000g. The 5mL tube can be spun in the same centrifuges that accommodates a 15mL tube. It is also suitable for freezing to -90°C. A frosted marking area on the tube cap is provided for sample tagging and identification.

Inoculating tubes & needles

Inoculating Needles

DISPOSABLE INOCULATING LOOPS & NEEDLES

High impact polystyrene loops and needles are smooth and flexible to facilitate uniform and smooth streaking without damaging the gel surface. Needles are straight and suitable for removal of specimens of single colonies. Packed sterile in safe, tamperproof, zip-seal re-sealable bags.

Disposable inoculating loops and needles do not need flaming and therefore eliminate the risk of infection due to aerosol formation of pathogenic substances. Cross-contamination due to improper sterilization is eliminated. They can be used under hoods without danger, and are color-coded for ease of size identification.

Spreaders

Cell Spreaders



Disposable, L-shaped, cell spreaders are ideal for spreading bacterial cultures evenly; the L-shape allows application on the entire petri dish or plate surface.
Smooth spreading surface with slight upward return reduces the risk of damaging agar sample.

 


Spreaders are manufactured of polypropylene and pre-sterilized, eliminating the need for flaming or autoclaving.
Packed in bags of 10 or individually in a peel back pouch.

Freezer Labels

Freezer Labels

MICRYO LABELS ROLLS and MICRYO LABELS FOR LASER PRINTERS

Micryo Dots and Labels are made from chemically inert polyester with a unique adhesive formulated to adhere to laboratory glass and plastic ware. These unique labels will not only withstand conventional freezing (-80°C) but can also be used for most cryogenic storage applications (vapor & liquid phase nitrogen storage at (-196°C). No need for separate labeling solutions for your cryo-preservation units and your ultra low freezers. The labels can even be used in incubators.

No need for separate labeling solutions for your cryo-preservation units and your ultra low freezers. The labels can even be used in incubators.

Micryo Labels do not require self lamination to be effective. The sleeker labels mean your tubes will still fit most storage systems without the label not sticking or being torn off. The wide range of sizes allows you to permanently label your whole experiment, from micro-centrifuge tube to cryovial; microtiter plate to storage boxes.

Freezer Boxes

Freezer Boxes

100 PLACE CRYO STORAGE BOX

Manufactured in translucent polypropylene, these freezer boxes can accommodate 0.5, 1.5 and 2.0mL microtubes as well as most manufactured brands of cryogenic vials. The boxes are slightly taller than most competitive freezer boxes and can store tubes up to 53.5mm in height.

The Cryo Storage Boxes can withstand harsh conditions (-80°C - +121°C) and will not degrade like card board storage boxes. A lock & seal triple hinge and locking clasp on the front keeps your samples secure while the box is closed. Each box has a dual alpha-numeric grid (inside & outside); impressed rings for stacking and a matte surface for printing or labeling.

Lid available in four fluorescent colors, natural or in a mixed pack; box bottom is clear for visual inspection. Dimensions: 140 x 140 x 60mm

Autoclave Deodizer

Autoclave Deodorizers


A new line of Autoclave Deodorizers that will remove unwanted odors from your facility by chemically absorbing odor causing molecules rather than masking them. Unlike similar products on the market, these are true deodorants. Instead of trying to overwhelm odors produced by the autoclave, the Deodorizers capsules neutralize odors and leave a subtle clean scent of Lemon, Apple or Heather.

 



To use, simply place one capsule into your autoclave or incubator with each load. The heat and moisture will dissolve the capsule and release a clean fresh scent. Argos Deodorizer capsules will make your laboratory a pleasant place to be in once again.

Available in Lemon, Apple or Heather.

Pestle Mixer

Pestle & Mixer

PELLET MIXER
The Pellet Mixer is a lightweight battery powered instrument that can be used with disposable pestles, mixers and micro tubes. Cell tissue and pellets are completely homogenized within seconds by means of a high speed vortexing action. Greatly reduces hand fatigue. Comes complete with 2 “AA” batteries and Pestle/Mixer adapter.
