The CURE Caddy™* is a tube rack specifically designed for the academic teaching-lab or small research lab setting. Each rack can simultaneously accommodate up to four different diameter tubes: two 50mL conical tubes, five 15mL conical or standard tubes, nine 1.5mL microcentrifuge tubes, and three 0.6mL microcentrifuge tubes. At approximately 118mm (4.68 inches) wide and 54mm (2.125 inches) tall, the hexagonal shape is the perfect size for wet lab benchwork - large enough to be stable yet small enough to minimize its bench space footprint. The racks are stackable, sit on feet that keep it elevated 4mm (1/8 inch) above the benchtop, and have holes at the bottom of each tube slot to allow for drainage.
These racks cannot currently be autoclaved. Unfortunately, because they are printed using standard PLA plastic, these racks are not currently designed to withstand the intense heat of an autoclave. Instead, if they need to be cleaned, it is recommended that they be handwashed using soap and water and/or sanitized with 70% alcohol (ethanol or isopropyl). The racks should also be kept away from direct, prolonged contact with acetone (liquid or fume), as it will soften and ultimately melt the plastic.
Currently, the CURE Caddy comes only in one choice of color, Fjord Blue.
