Low-profile 0.2 ml thin-wall polypropylene PCR tube strips are recommended for reaction volumes of 5–125 µl (200 µl maximum). The lower overall height (15.48 mm) of low-profile 0.2 ml tube strips reduces the potential for condensate formation and offers advantages for fast PCR, low-volume reactions, and light capture in fluorescence assays such as real-time PCR. The low-profile V-well tubes can be supported in a 96-place PCR-tube rack and still provide the low clearance needed to fit in some microplate readers. Overall height, including flat optical caps and 96-place rack, is 18.3 mm. Low-profile 0.2 ml tubes can be centrifuged if supported in a 96-place rack, which is also useful for reaction setup and storage.
Low-profile tubes are available in strips of 8 and come in natural and opaque white (white tube strips are useful for optical assays in which increased signal is desired). The tube strips are without caps; use the strip cap tool for quick seating of cap strips on tubes.
