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.
Using a unique tube coding system from Micronic, the Animal Sciences Group has been able to significantly improve the absolute traceability, throughput and long term storage integrity of labelled samples going through their laboratory.
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.
“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."
"We use the Micronic sample storage products because the individual barcoded tubes allows us to easily swap tubes from plate to plate. 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 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.
