This is a double-ended tube opener/uncapper. It is very much like KaiLun's tube decapper, except that it can be used to uncap:
- 1500 uL Eppendorf tubes
- 500 uL Eppendorf tubes
- 200 uL PCR tubes
And it has a bent handle so that you can maneuver around other samples when you're working with racked tubes (you bend it yourself using a bit of heat).
I use 2 perimeters and 4 top/bottom solid layers.
The keen-eyed reader will notice that you need to bend the handle yourself. Simply warm the bend area over a candle, and then press it against the curvy part of a spoon's handle to set the new shape (see photo above). Remember to bend it in the right direction! The side that printed face-down on your printer should stay face-down on the spoon.
