Sample Storage Tubes

0.40ml Tubes External Thread

The 0.40ml tube enables efficient storage of low volumes of liquid samples. Due to thick tube walls, the tube has a sturdy design and excellent properties for ultra-low temperature storage. The 2D Data-Matrix codes are permanently laser-etched into the tube bottom so that they can never wear or fall off, ensuring absolute traceability.

The 0.40ml tube is compatible with the 1D barcoded Micronic 96-1 Rack which is based on the automation-friendly ANSI/SLAS rack format. Additionally, the tube is compatible with liquid handlers and automated stores.

Our solutions

Available labware enhancement options

Sterilization using Gamma Irradiation: Micronic products can be supplied gamma irradiated. Irradiation itself cannot guarantee that the product is free from any detectable RNases, DNases or pyrogens. Class 7 clean room production is therefore an essential requirement.

Sterilization using EtO Treatment: Micronic products can be supplied ethylene oxide treated. Using a novel ethylene oxide treatment process – Micronic’s consumable products are independently certified to be absolutely DNA-free and therefore provide the perfect medium for long-term, high integrity storage of forensic samples. Micronic is offering the DNA-free products in a special Tyvek packaging.

Pre-Capped: All Micronic tubes are available pre-capped. There are 12 different colors for your choice: Grey, White, Yellow, Orange, Red, Pink, Purple, Blue, Light Blue, Light Green, Green and Black.

Pre-Racked: All Micronic tubes are available pre-racked. The racks are based on the global recognized ANSI / SLAS standards for storage and features a laser etched 1D rack barcode.

What our customers say

At Micronic our goal is to advance research by serving scientists in finding solutions that contribute to a higher quality of life. This is why it makes us particularly proud to supply the researchers of JUST with the consumables they need for their robotic discovery platform.

Read full testimonial

"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."

Read full testimonial

“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.”

Read full testimonial

“We chose Micronic because of their compatibility with liquid handling robotics, validated ultra-low binding tube properties, highly satisfying split push cap sealing performance, and the assured traceability that their laser etched 1D barcoded rack and 2D coded tubes provide."
