Rubber BandsINDESTRUCTIBLE Rubber Bands

Indestructible bands are made from EPDM that offers excellent resistance to the conditions that cause common rubber bands to degrade: acidic environment, UV and fluorescent light and changes in temperature. These attributes make EPDM the perfect banding/bundling material for any application in your Drosophila Lab. The tight stretch and heavy wall is designed for industrial use that will not deteriorate over time. Operating Range -51°C to 149°C.

Resistant to:

  • Ozone
  • UV and flourescent lights
  • Strong and oxidizing chemicals
  • Aging – Last for years!

Halo Carbon OilHalocarbon Oil

Halocarbon oil allows free diffusion of oxygen, has low viscosity, and thus prevents dehydration and hypoxia. With a refractive index similar to glycerol, halocarbon oil also has good optical properties for imaging. It also provides a good environment for injection and is particularly useful for long-term imaging of embryos.

Synonym: polychlorotrifluoroethylene (PCTFE)
