the tubes i should use for my lipid extraction

 Hello, everyone
I am trying to use "Bigh and Dryer" method to do the lipid in a small scale ~  0.8 ml total.  
I am wondering what kind of tube I should use for this purpose, since I have to use chloroform, so I can't use plastic.
Also I need to centrifuge and dry down the solution in the tube.

Any suggestions ??
 
Thx

Hi Eclipse-te,

Hi Eclipse-te,

You can try pyrex glass tubes (No. 9826) with screw cap (can be ordered through many scientific vendors). This kind of glass tubes is very commonly used for glycan preparation during which chloroform extraction and centrifugation are required.

Hope this helps and good luck.
