SPI Supplies Brand Cell Culture Plate, PTFE, Square Shape
Appearance: Solid white opaque material
CAS #: 9002-84-0
These non-stick culture plates come in two distortion-free cavity styles - "U" or "Square", and can be sterilized by normal methods. The polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) used in its destruction results in a long lifetimes and easy to clean and resure system.
Because of the PTFE construction, you can count on virtually total chemical resistance to all solvents. Because of the ultra high purity of the starting PTFE molding material, the final product is contaminant free and hence, there are no contaminants to leach out into important samples.
Temperature conditions of use: -180°C (-292°F) to +250°C (482°F)
Do not take this product above 250°C (482°F) because of the possibility of decomposition occurring of the PTFE chains, resulting in the evolution of HF. Similarly, do not allow this product to come in contact with an open flame because the decomposition products would include HF.
Disposal of this product:
This product, because of its pure PTFE construction, should never be designated for incineration but should always be taken to a landfill.
