Plastic test tubes


We are a wholesale supplier of plastic test tubes based in Crewe in the United kingdom 

The price per tube will decrease the more you buy 
You will find a wide variety of test tubes made from various plastics . We have shortened the names of the various plastics because some of them take an age to type .
Below is a guide to the shortened names. Don't worry about the first name in the list , "I can't pronounce it either "
However click on the underlined title and all will be revealed  

'ABS' - 
Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene     TPX - Polymethylpentene
 PS -   Polystyrene          
 PP -    
 Polypropylene
 PE -    Polyethylene

 PET OR PETE -  Polyethylene terephthalate 
 
HDPE - 
Polyethylene (High Density)

 
May we also clear up a common confusing listing problem which has been mentioned on a number of occasions , IE what exactly does ' 50 x 150 x 16 mm ' mean ? .  I must admit its a very good question .The answer which springs to mind is " It means WE ARE LAZY " 
It also means you get
' 50 pieces, '  in this case 150 mm tall with a 16 mm outer diameter .
So the first number you see is ALWAYS the number of items ( " 
on our site at least ! "
The 2nd is the height or length and the last is the outer diameter at the rim !
If you only see 2 numbers IE
150 x 17mm this signifies the height or length in millimetres and the outer diameter at the rim or lip of the tube in millimetres.
" We hope this helps clear up any confusion : ) "      


 Our test tubes are manufactured to ISO 9001 standards. Which ensures the quality management of disposable and reusable plastic products for clinical chemistry, haematology , microbiology , serology laboratories and analysis laboratories.
 Plastic test tube can also be used for 1000's of other uses, Test tube drinks, Sand art , craft storage, They make excellent display cases for 100's of foodstuffs and are widely used for wedding favours to name but a few of the other uses .
The things that test tubes can be used for is restricted only by your imagination . So put your thinking caps on .  
" For instance " " A lot of our tubes have a round base and therefore won't stand up on their own " 

"SO !"  ....
" Turn them upside down and virtually every tube we have will stand on its own and has a dome shaped top " ?? " It all depends how you look at them "

However the larger sizes of stopper would be made to order and can take up to four weeks We have however ordered a selection of Cork stoppers for our own stock and you will find those tubes listed below.

  • We decided to do a category which includes our full range of Test tubes but NON on these have stoppers . This is due to numerous requests from our customers which just goes to prove that we do listen to your requests. seemed a lot easier to create this extra category instead of adding yet more options and variations to our whole range. We hope you agree .
