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 products to enhance the process of sample preservation and storage.
“We used the 6.00ml externally threaded tubes with 2D Data-Matrix code on the bottom. It was critical for us to have a good sample ID, so the 2D Data-Matrix code on the bottom and the 1D Rack barcode helped us to keep good track of our samples.”
The University of Edinburgh and the Natural History Museum are using, as part of the 'Insect Pollinators Initiative', the Micronic 4.00ml tube for storing the larger insects in the collection.
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."
The transparent tube walls enable easy visual checking, while the 4 coding concepts guarantee sample traceability. Working volume (+21°C): 1.20ml with Screw Cap.
The Micronic 138-2 HD Rack has a honeycomb design, increasing the number of samples that can be stored up to 43% compared to a standard ANSI/SLAS format rack.
The DR710 is equipped with a uniquely designed active anti-frost system so that tube codes from even frozen samples can be read.
