Title: TUBE FOR PROCESSING OR STORING A SAMPLE
Abstract:
A tube for use in cell and cellular component analyses includes a main body with a flat end having a micro well to hold at least a portion of a sample and a second end. The micro well may be formed by a partition extending from the flat end to the second end or may be formed by a cavity within the flat end. The second end may be open or sealed, such as to prevent contamination. The cell and cellular component analyses may include, but are not limited to, lysis reactions, amplification reactions, nucleic acid analysis, cell culture, and cell viability assays.
