Centrifuge Tubes

A wide selection of premium centrifuge tubes are just a click away at MIDSCI!

We have the centrifuge tubes you’re looking for.
If you need to keep your light sensitive compounds nice and safe, turn to our Litesafe centrifuge tubes. Unlike amber tinted tubes, these ones are fully opaque and eliminate the hassle of using aluminum foil to protect your samples.
If you’re looking for high-quality, made in the U.S., centrifuge tubes for standard benchtop storage and mixing of liquid, then we highly recommend the conical Tornado Tubes we carry.
And if it’s sterile centrifuge tubes that won’t buckle during spins or crack at -80C that you need, then you’ll want to purchase the TPP premium centrifuge tubes we stock.

Midsci 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. Midsci LiteSafe tubes eliminate the inconvenience of fitting tubes with aluminum foil to protect samples. Ideal for use with fluorescent probes or ethidium bromide.

15 & 50mL Centrifuge Tubes

Disposable polypropylene tubes and caps with recessed lid to prevent leaking. Frosted writing surface allows for permanent identification and labeling. Autoclavable to 122°C and can be stored in freezers to -100°C.

RCF values: 15mL, 8,400g / 50mL, 10,000g


The 5mL Five-O MacroTubes take all of the conveniences of standard 15mL conical tubes and scales them down for space efficiency and decreased natural resource consumption. Useful from -86°C to 110°C, these tubes are a valuable resource for boiling and for sample preservation at very low temperatures. Additionally, the 56mm length (vs. 120mm for 15mL tubes, greatly reduces the risk of contamination of pipettor shafts, allowing 1mL or 5mL tips to easily reach the bottom.

The foam racks are similar to the packaging normally associated with 15mL tubes (upright with caps attached), but they require about 60% less storage space.

    • Opaque Black Tube
    • Compatible with standard equipment
    • Centrifuge at up to 25,000xg
    • RNase, DNase & pyrogen free
    • Unsurpassed Clarity
    • Dual graduations at every 0.2mL and 0.5mL

15mL and 50 mL screw cap centrifuge tubes that are now available in individual sterile packets. Individual packets eliminate the worry of whether or not tubes in an already opened bag are still sterile and creates an ease of not having to fumble around with open bags or racks of 50 tubes. These are sterile right up until the time you open the convenient easy peel package.

The conical 15ml and 50ml centrifuge tubes are made of premium polypropylene for clarity and centrifugal strength. Tubes and caps may be frozen at temperatures as low as -86°C. The maximum centrifugal force is 12,000xg for the 15ml tubes and 15,000xg for the 50 ml tubes*. Caps have a flat top surface for easy marking and labeling.

  • Sterile, individually wrapped
  • RNase, DNase, and Pyrogen free
