What is the difference between RSA-Pro™ and vs the new RSA-Pro X™ surface treatments?

The biggest difference is that RSA-Pro™ surface treatment incorporated a vapor deposition type process that used ionic bonds with silanes to achieve hydrophobicity of the RSA glass.

RSA-Pro X™ surface treatment uses a very different, proprietary process of covalently bonding hydrophobic materials to the walls of RSA™ vials. The discontinued, RSA-Pro™ treatment was not very hydrolytically stable and could not be autoclaved or frozen.

RSA-Pro X™ will not lose its hydrophobic nature for years, even in the presence of water and they can be autoclaved and frozen and thawed effectively.
