MVE XC Series tanks have capacities ranging from 700-5000 straws and 210 to over 1000 vials. Manufactured to a world class level of excellence and backed by an industry-leading 5 year vacuum warranty, these durable, lightweight units can be relied on to perform in the most demanding of environments.

XC 20 Signature includes: Bend Don't Break™ & Semen Safe™ Durability features

Bend Don't Break™: After 2 years in concept testing, the new XC 20 Signature includes a new top head shape which deforms in order to absorb G-force damage to the neck area. This increases the durability of the XC20 Signature and will make the tank more robust to MINIMIZE the mishandling of transport damage. Although the bend concept allows for visible outside evidence that has been tipped or dropped during transport, it will be more resilient and less likely to break, minimizing the chances of product loss.

Semen Safe™: With extensive testing the new SC 20 Signature will include a stronger composite neck that is 20% stronger than the old design. This feature will allow the neck to be less susceptible to G-force damage during mishandling of transport damage in order to increase the durability of the XC 20 Signature. When combined with BEND DON'T BREAK™ it should minimize semen losses, which are the result of transport damage. While we've maintained the "form, fit, and function" of the MVE 20 Millenium design, SEMEN SAFE™ increases the durability of the tanks.
