Interpretive Summary: Laboratory sample management requires the use of a wide variety of racks and holders to accommodate different sized tubes and vials. This 3D printed device securely holds 15, 8, 4 and 2 mL tubes/vials upright. This tool simplifies laboratory sample management and allows for workflows with multiple sized tubes to occur on a single rack. Samples can be easily aligned to reduce the chances of mistakes during liquid transfers.

Technical Abstract: This multifunctional 10x4 laboratory rack features concentric wells that hold 15 mL conical tubes (Diam. ~17 mm), 15 mL glass culture tubes (Diam. ~17 mm), 8 mL screw top sample vials (Diam. ~17 mm), 4 mL screw top sample vials (Diam. ~15 mm), and HPLC vials (Diam. ~12 mm) firmly upright. Material: PLA Supports: N/A Resolution: 0.2 mm Infill: 10%
