Why use RINO™ tubes?

RINO tubes have a screw-cap so they seal more tightly and provide an extra layer of protection against sample loss. An O-Ring in the lid also helps to prevent the release of aerosols that may form during homogenization.

What model Bullet Blenders can I use with RINO™ tubes?

RINO tubes can be used in 3ISBBX24 (standard), 3ISBBX24B (Bullet Blender Blue) and 3ISBBY24M (Bullet Blender Storm) models.

DO NOT use RINO tubes in screw-cap model Bullet Blenders that use TUBE1.5AX-S -Axygen® (3ISBBX24W or 3ISBBX24BW).

What do I need to use RINO™ tubes?

Use of these tubes in a snap-cap style homogenizer requires a RINO lid gasket. All BBX24, BBX24B and BBY24M model homogenizers will arrive with a labeled RINO lid gasket installed. These instruments will still come with a labeled Eppendorf® gasket so you have the option of using Safe-Lock™ tubes. For customers who only have an Eppendorf® gasket, we will provide the replacement lid gasket free of charge with the first order of RINO tubes or kits for a limited time. Please contact customer support to request a RINO gasket.

How do I change the gasket on my Bullet Blender?

Switching back and forth between lid gaskets is easy – just remove the three screws with a Phillips head screwdriver and gently lift off the gasket. Place the second gasket in the correct orientation on the lid and insert the screws. Do not overly-tighten the screws when installing a gasket.

Can I get Bead Lysis Kits in RINO™ tubes?

Yes you can! Please see our Bead Lysis Kit page for details.

What protocols should I use for RINO tubes?

Our protocols work with either tube type: snap-cap or RINO.
