Sample Storage tubes

1.40ml Tubes External Thread Hybrid

The 1.40ml Hybrid tube provides a unique solution to identify samples. The transparent part of the tube walls enables easy visual checking of the sample, while the 4 coding concepts guarantee sample traceability. The 4 different coding concepts on one tube enable researchers to verify information and keep identifying samples when automated or visual sample identification methods are challenging.

The triple screw thread of the tubes gives an excellent closure for long-term sample preservation and storage at ultra-low temperatures. To prevent the screw cap from overturning – manually or mechanically – the cap is designed with a unique lock when sealed. The sturdy design and thick walls of the tube make it possible to safely store samples at cryogenic temperatures.

Our solutions

AUTOMATED AND VISUAL SAMPLE IDENTIFICATION

The Micronic tubes with external thread hybrid uniquely combine automated and visual sample identification. The visual codes allow researchers to quickly identify samples or verify codes during the storage/retrieval process or field research. The transparent parts of the tube wall enable easy visual checking of the sample. The 1D and 2D barcode can be read by automated systems. The bottom code surface of the tubes features a raised edge, which protects the 2D Data-Matrix code against accidental scratches.

Due to the unique injection molding technique used to manufacture the hybrid tubes, the white bottom and side walls cannot be separated from the transparent tube. The high contrast 1D, 2D and human-readable codes are permanently laser-etched into the white surfaces, so that they can never wear or fall off. The triple screw thread of the hybrid tubes gives an excellent closure for long-term sample preservation and storage at ultra-low temperatures. To prevent the screw cap from overturning – manually or mechanically – the cap is designed with a unique lock when sealed. The cap is available in nine different colors.
