Eppendorf DNA LoBind Tubes ~ overview
The DNA LoBind Tube provides the genomics user with the certainty that sample loss of genetic material caused by interaction with the plastic surface of the tube will be insignificant.
With the combination of the purest selected types of polypropylene and specially developed production technologies, a tube has been developed that ensures nearly 100% recovery of DNA/RNA.
A comparison of the recovery rates of various providers shows that the DNA LoBind Tube has the lowest loss rate.
The DNA LoBind Tube is predestined for use in DNA and RNA sample preparation without loss of quality â€“ and has been batch tested and certified PCR clean.
For the subsequent PCR we recommend the use of our thin-walled PCR tubes.

Eppendorf DNA LoBind Tubes ~ technical specifications
Eppendorf DNA LoBind tubes enjoy the same excellent technical specifications as Eppendorf SafeLock tubes, for more complete details see the downloadable Eppendorf LoBind Tubes - General Technical Data on the downloads tab.
Tests at 30,000 Ã— g show that other microcentrifuge tubes (a) might burst
during centrifugation resulting in sample loss â€“ Eppendorf Safe-Lock Tubes (b)
allow fast and safe centrifugation of your samples*1!
Reliable lid sealing
Especially when incubating expensive or toxic samples, radioactive
substances or DNA, a reliable sealing and lid closure is of high importance
to avoid sample loss and contamination. During incubation in a boiling
water bath Eppendorf Safe-Lock Tubes will remain safely closed
Figure Lid Sealing: Shown is the percentage of tubes that have
opened during a 30-min incubation in a water bath at 100 Â°C.
All Eppendorf tubes remained safely closed.
Maximum evaporation protection
Eppendorfâ€™s vast experience in precision molding ensures a perfect fit
of the Safe-Lock lid to the tube. This results in minimal sample
evaporation loss thus protecting your samples in all applications.

sample evaporation during a 1-hour incubation at 70 Â°C.
*1 Safe-Lock Tubes, Eppendorf Quality and PCR clean: up to 30,000 Ã— g
for 0,5 ml and 1,5 ml tubes, up to 25,000 Ã— g for 2 ml tubes.
Safe-Lock Tubes, Eppendorf Biopur: up to 22,000 Ã— g for all tube sizes. *2 Competitor V tubes opened during incubation

The Tube Rack is ideal for sample processing and the short or medium-term storage of samples. As it can withstand temperatures as low as -80C, the rack can also be stored in a freezer. Tube racks are available for 0.5 ml test tubes as well as for 1.5 m-2.0 ml test tubes. Tube Racks can be stacked even when fully loaded and can be coupled to other racks on all sides. They are also UV-resistant and fully autoclavable and have labelling surfaces to assist identification.

Eppendorf DNA LoBind Tubes ~ Answers to Frequently asked questions courtesy Eppendorf SP
Some of the Frequently asked questions about Eppendorf DNA LoBind Tubescourtesy Eppendorf sp
What distinguishes the DNA LoBind Tube from a "Standard" Safe-Lock Tube?
In comparison to a Safe-Lock Tube, the DNA LoBind Tube shows significantly less DNA bonding affinity. This effect is most apparent with high salt concentrations and when working with short DNA fragments. The DNA LoBind Tube is therefore especially suitable for applications that should be carried out with the minimum loss of nucleic acid material.
From what material are your micro test tubes manufactured?
All of our tubes are manufactured from polypropylene. The polypropylene we use fulfils the specifications of the FDA for the use of plastics for foodstuffs. No metal-based dyes are used.
Do the Eppendorf LoBind Tubes have the same material durability as all other micro test tubes from Eppendorf?
"The Eppendorf LoBind Tubes completely satisfy the specifications of the Eppendorf Standard Safe Lock tubes with reference to centrifugation stability (exception: Protein LoBind Tube), lid tightness, pop up safety and chemical resistance. (See Application No. 56: The best material for original Eppis.)"
Do you offer siliconized micro test tubes?
"Our tube assortment does not include coated or siliconized tubes. In order to keep sample loss caused by the adsorption of sample material on the tube wall to a minimum, we recommend using the Eppendorf Protein LoBind Tubes or Eppendorf DNA LoBind Tubes. These are made of a special type of polypropylene and are manufactured under optimized process conditions. "
Are the Eppendorf LoBind Tubes autoclavable?
"Yes, both the Protein LoBind and the DNA LoBind Tube are autoclavable when open (20 min, 121 Â°C, 1 bar)."
Are the Eppendorf LoBind Tubes coated?
Not the Eppendorf LoBind Tubes are neither siliconized nor coated. The low binding affinity results from of a special type of polypropylene and the optimized manucturing process.
What is the life expectancy of Eppendorf micro test tubes?
At least 5 years at a storage temperature of +5 to +35 Â°C.
Do your micro test tubes contain heavy metals?
Lead, cadmium, mercury, etc. are well below the prescribed limits of the DIN norm. In the course of the production process it is impossible to avoid the smallest quantities of metal resulting from machine friction.
Can Eppendorf micro test tubes be sterilized with ethylene oxide?
"Yes, this is possible. Please note that the micro test tubes have to be taken out of the packaging for sterilization.
In addition, please note that some ethylene oxide will remain in the material after sterilization. "
Can your micro test tubes be frozen at -80 Â°C?
Yes. Please refer to the operating manual.
Can your micro test tubes be coated with acrylic resin within the framework of a UV polymerization?
"Yes, the tubes can withstand UV polymerization. However, we cannot give you any instructions for the procedure."
Can contamination of micro test tubes by bacterial endotoxin be inactivated by autoclaving?
"No. Bacterial endotoxins (lipopolysaccharide, LPS) are very stable and withstand normal autoclaving at 121 Â°C. To inactivate LPS, the objects have to be baked at 250 Â°C, which, of course, is not possible with plastics."
Which Eppendorf micro test tubes are free of DNA?
"All micro test tubes designated with "PCR clean" are free of human DNA, DNase, RNase and PCR inhibitors.
Our Safe-Lock micro test tubes are also available in the "Eppendorf Biopur" purity standard. Due to the special manufacturing processes and the individual blister-packaging, Biopur products are certified "DNA free"."
What level of protein binding affinity do your micro test tubes demonstrate?
Our micro test tubes are used both in the proteomics area and for storage and transport of many different protein solutions. If you work with low protein concentrations, we recommend using the Eppendorf Protein LoBind Tubes. These tubes are made of a special type of polypropylene and are manufactured under optimized process conditions. In comparison to standard polypropylene tubes, these tubes therefore demonstrate a considerably lower affinity to proteins.
How do you define the temperature entry "RT", for example, as a storage condition for your micro test tubes?
"Definition of RT (room temperature): +5 to +35 Â°C."
What is the best way to label Eppendorf micro test tubes?
"The micro test tube should be clean and free from grease and only labeled on the space provided. Water-resistant felt pens from Steadtler S and F, in black, are the most suitable for this. The writing should be left to dry for at least 2 min."
