For more detailed information see our Product information page.Made from reinforced polypropylene they are incredibly durable and have a very long life span. Laboratories continue to report that they are recycling the famous red racks through gas and steam autoclaves as well as freezers for many years. Some of the original racks are still being used in laboratories today. This makes the Tetra Racks incredibly cost effective and especially when you buy them in bulk. For a full list of prices visit our Price page.
The racks are suitable for both gas and steam autoclaving with a temperature range of +150C to – 20C. The racks are not damaged by most biological chemicals and are suitable for applications where samples are stored directly in the rack, as they will not contaminate most serums or chemicals.
The solid block design makes them physically stable and their low centre of gravity makes them very resistant to tipping. Tetra racks are commonly used for both the handling and storing of test tubes. They are particularly useful for large volume operations or mechanized experiments requiring standard and stable test tube holders.
