Very similar to the culture vessels, culture tubes are used in plant tissue culture to grow plant tissue in a controlled environment. Culture tubes have a narrow high shape, in which you can easily place one plant cell. Contrastingly, the culture vessels are significantly wider and shorter, making room for many plant cells to grow together.

The culture tubes are available for sale as:

  • Conical polystyrene (PS) model: DeWit type. Available non-sterile and sterile via gamma irradiation.
  • Flat bottom glass model: available with 145 or 100 mm height.
  • Various round bottom glass models.

Our flat bottom glass tubes can be bought together with additional (autoclavable) polycarbonate caps.

The conical shape of this PS tube (De Wit type) provides enough space for growth while using a minimal quantity of media.
