With ever changing user needs, the Sterilin range incorporates a variety of products to suit the increasing demands of microbiologists and life scientists.
Sterilin offer a choice of polystyrene containers from 7ml to 250ml, some of which are specific to the clinical sector. The flagship Sterilin 30ml universal container with its leak free cap is, as its name suggests, for universal use. It is free standing with a conical base and thick wall construction - ideal for centrifugation, a valuable addition for all laboratories.
The 7ml bijou is ideal for small volume samples. It is available both empty and pre-filled with boric acid for the preservation of urine samples. For Chlamydia trachomatis studies the 7ml bijou is also available with the addition of a removable coverslip.
In addition, Sterilin also has a range of non-pyrogenic containers, certified in house, endotoxin free to levels below 0.01EU/ml. These containers are ideal for the storage of samples, formulation work, sterility testing and endotoxin testing.
As these containers will, in most instances, contain valuable and in some cases hazardous samples, it is imperative that there is no leakage. Consequently, the Sterilin range offers a choice of either plastic or metal flow seal cap that has undergone stringent leak testing to BS5213 ensuring a leak free performance first time and every time.
For maximum safety, all relevant containers are CE marked and clearly labelled in accordance with the European directive 98/79/EC.
