Microcentrifuge tubes are tubes for microcentrifuges. What an apt name.
Popular in numerous laboratories – especially those focused on molecular biology – microcentrifuges are designed for the centrifugation of very small samples. Microcentrifuges fit tubes ranging from 250 uL to 2 mL.
Microcentrifuge tubes vary in material (glass or plastic), cap style (snap cap or screw thread), and certification type.
