DuraTube High-Impact Bead Beating Tubes


Impact resistant tubes specially formulated for bead-beating / homogenization applications.

Homogenization calls for a tube that is built to withstand the rigors of lysing applications. So when you need to be sure about the tube you select for lysing and bead beating, choose the brand that has the experience, innovation, and reliability of an industry leader: SureSeal DuraTubes from SSIbio.
