Micronic is an independent organization with its headquarters located in Lelystad, the Netherlands. We are an ISO 9001 and 14001 certified company.
Micronic’s goal is to advance research by serving scientists in finding solutions that contribute to a higher quality of life. We develop and manufacture a range of Dutch-designed products to enhance the process of sample preservation and storage.
For its Rotterdam Study, the oldest long-term population health study in the Netherlands, Erasmus Medical Center has switched to the compact 2D coded tube system from Micronic for the storage of its biological samples.
"We use the Micronic sample storage products because the individual barcoded tubes allows us to easily swap tubes from plate to plate. Previously, we would make up a new plate using an aliquot of sample. By instead swapping the tubes, we no longer need to split the sample up when we need to analysis the sample again. As we have over 70,000 DNA samples, it is preferable to keep a sample in a single tube then split over several plates."
The Generation R study is a great example of how Micronic products are used in laboratories around the world preserving the integrity of samples for many years.
“After a comprehensive evaluation of commercially available consumables we selected Micronic 0.75ml and 1.4ml tubes together with screw caps and Roborack storage racks to provide high integrity, long-term storage of our human blood, serum and plasma samples at –80°C."
