Tube polypropylene: A neglected critical parameter for protein adsorption during biospecimen storage.
- Integrated BioBank of Luxembourg
This biospecimen research case study illustrates the importance of a neglected pre-analytical factor, the polypropylene type of storage tubes. We measured amyloid beta1-42 peptide and showed that a non-irradiated, homopolymer type of polypropylene has the lowest adsorption properties.
