Possible replacement for Test-Tubes / Culture Slants?
    #1574545 - 05/24/03 02:55 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)



I found these the other day while browsing the net... they're soda bottle preforms.
These are what soda bottles are made from (2-litre), they're heated and pressurized air is blown into them so they expand.

What's neat about them is they use normal soda bottle caps.. and you can buy caps that have the safety seal/ring on them..

They would seal airtight and be tamper evident.
They're cheap and reuseable.

Though I'm not sure if they're autoclavable... but still.. chemical sterilization is an option I'm sure.

You can buy them... Here

They are Not Autoclavable, But Isopropyl alcohol could sterilze them. They would be good for holding chunks of mycelium too :smile:. Great find man!

Yea, I kinda figured they wouldn't be autoclavable.. but still...

here's some more info for people too lazy to click that link...



These preforms are air and water tight when covered tightly with a bottle top and so are perfect for collecting or storing liquid samples. Preforms are ~12 cm long x 2.5 cm in diameter (~5" x 1"). Interior volume of preform is approximately 28 cc (~1 fluid oz). Package contains 30 Preforms and 30 bottle caps. Bottle caps sold separately as well.

A packaged (of 30/30) is $15

There's also the preform Rack


You can get just the rack, which hold 6 preforms.. for $4 or the Rack/Kit.. which is the rack and 6 preforms/caps for $7

I found this site the other day, and I love it.. there's so many cool toys on there!

Right... those are nice.. but a tad bit pricey... the reason I liked the preforms is the fact that they're so damn cheap!

buying by the gross these are as cheap...split the cost with a few friends...and these are autoclavable...septa caps are a phone call away which increases the flexability....
