Vials and Microplates
This tube holder is machined out of a 1.5 lb aluminum block and has the dimensions of a standard 2ml deep well microplate. It is used with the MiniBeadbeater-96 cell disrupter. One or two 50 ml screw cap centrifuge tubes are placed completely inside the cold block and the contents shaken in the "wall to wall" direction. The block can be pre-cooled in a deep freezer or, at cryo-temperatures, with dry-ice or liquid nitrogen.
Included with each vial block are 25 sterile, polypropylene 50 ml screw cap tubes (Stockwell brand, part # 3252).*
*Important note: To maximize the efficiency of heat transfer, this aluminum tube holder was designed to fit with close tolerance to the Stockwell-brand 50 ml tube. Other brands of 50 ml centrifuge tube may not fit properly. If you prefer to use a different brand tube, please check with us for compatibility.

A pack of five polypropylene microvial vial racks. The rack has a standard microplate footprint and holds up to forty-five 1.5 ml or 2.0 ml microvials on one side and thirty-two 0.5 ml microvials on the other side. One of these racks comes standard with our Mini-BeadBeater-96.
This solid aluminum vial rack for 2ml vials offers superior temperature control during beadbeating than bead mill cell disrupters relying on flowing air chilled by dry-ice or refrigeration. It is well-known that chilled air has much poorer heat conductivity than chilled metal. The block is pre-cooled in a deep freezer or, to cryo-temperatures with dry-ice or liquid nitrogen. Having dimensions of a standard deep-well microplate, it is compatible with not only our MiniBeadbeater-96 but with several competitor microplate shakers.
