Problems Storing Light Sensitive Reagents? We have a Solution

Most laboratories are familiar with storing valuable photosensitive reagents and solutions in natural PP tubes simply wrapped in tin foil to “protect” them from light.


Camlab offers an alternative to this.  The Blackline Plastics range of products keeps your light sensitive samples, reagents and solutions safe through the effective elimination of light. Unlike amber tinted tubes, these products are completely opaque therefore protecting even the most light-sensitive compounds.

0017207Blackline tubes and boxes are ideal for use with fluorescent probes or ethidium bromide.
The entire range is autoclavable and features storage/freezer boxes, 0.5 and 1.5ml centrifuge tubes, 5ml preparation tube as well as standard 15 and 50ml conical centrifuge tubes.

The light-sensitive freezer boxes can be customized to fit different size tubes through the option of separate grids (packs of 16) that you build up yourself to divide your containers in any format you wish.
