ABgene® Twist-Lock Tube Racks are ideal for sample collection and storage of precious samples including DNA, blood, cell lines, and tissue.

The racks are suitable for storage at -20ºC, -80ºC and in vapour phase liquid nitrogen+ as the tubes feature a unique dual seal that "locks in" with the cap in two distinct positions. The caps are moulded out of an inert polymer that actually increases the strength of the seal at low temperatures.

Twist-Lock tubes and caps can be easily handled and accessed using either the Twist-Lock Cap-It or the Twist-Lock Tool.
