Microcentrifuge tubes are made of a polyethylene resin or an ultra-clear polypropylene that allows for easy viewing of contents. They are also fitted to most common rotors for universal usage. The flat top snap caps of the tubes protect the contents and ensure a secure seal. They are easy to open and close and can also withstand repeated use. Microcentrifuge tubes are ideal for different sample preparations, storage, and centrifugation tasks. Micro centrifuge tubes can manage high stress during the denaturation of samples in boiling water and are favorable for use under thermal demands. The small hook of the lid clips around the rim of the tube, offering trouble-free heating and holding. The lid closure on the microcentrifuge tube protects accidental opening of the lid. Lids can be easily opened with one hand. The tubes can be autoclaved at 121°C for 20 minutes. Autoclaving micropestles are used for re-suspending pellets. They always have a guaranteed sterile, RNase-free, DNA-free, pyrogen-free, DNase-free, ATP-free environment. They have a high graduation scale. Harmful bio-hazardous substances can be removed and be made free of aerosols with the help of a thin membrane in the center of the lid with a cannula. They can be centrifuged at up to 23,500xgr.There is a roughened writing surface on the side and the lid.
Microcentrifuge tubes are made of various materials. Polystyrene is ideally suited for optical measurements as a result of its high clarity. Polypropylene displays high thermal, mechanical, and chemical resistance. It is therefore recommended for the storage of chemical and biological samples. Polyethylene is characterized by high thermal and chemical resistance. The cap of the tube has a 90° attached hinge that aligns automatically to the cap. It makes easier to close during one-handed pipetting. The tubes are available in sizes that fit all standard and high capacity rotors. They are designed with smooth surfaces. Ergonomic caps make the tube easy to open and reduce the spill of the sample in it and decrease potential for repetitive strain injury. The tubes have flat and easily pierce able handling caps and a side writing surface. They avoid the use of any plasticizers, biocides, which can contaminate samples and negatively affect bioassay results during manufacturing. They reduce the risk of chemicals leaching into samples. A variety of tubes of different sizes are available in each segment mentioned with different labels. There is an external graduations for easy identification of tube fill level. A clear, non-colored tube is ideal for protocols where clear and easy viewing of samples is necessary. It has a high centrifugation limit. Flat tube cap surface is applicable for easy labeling of sample numbers. The advantages offered by microcentrifuge tubes are likely to propel the microcentrifuge tube market during the forecast period.
However, factors such as the mechanical failure of equipment caused due to the release of harmful chemicals and improper maintenance of rotors in the centrifugation of certain substances are expected to hamper the microcentrifuge tube market in the coming years. Moreover, microcentrifuge tubes are well maintained and can be used again for non-sterile work. This can lead to saturation in the sectors of centrifuges due to their long lifespans, thus restraining microcentrifuge tube market growth.
The global microcentrifuge tube market can be segmented based on product, end-user, and region. Based on product, the global microcentrifuge tube market can be classified into non-sterile and sterile. Sterile microcentrifuge tubes are in high demand in laboratories and forensic sectors. In terms of end-user, the global microcentrifuge tube market can be categorized into laboratory use, industrial use, forensic, and others. Laboratories include research laboratories and hospital labs. The demand for microcentrifuge tubes in these settings is high.
Based on region, the microcentrifuge tube market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominates the microcentrifuge tube market, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.
