Sample storage tubes

3.00ml Tubes External Thread Hybrid (48-well format)

The 3.00ml tubes with external thread hybrid guarantee sample traceability, optimize working volume and increase overall sample storage efficiency. The transparent part of the tube walls enable easy visual checking of the sample, while the 4 coding concepts guarantee sample traceability. The tubes are compatible with ANSI / SLAS format racks, standard cryo boxes, automated stores and liquid handlers.

Externally threaded tubes also allow for a higher volume of material to be stored inside, which means that sample tubes can hold more while occupying the same amount of storage space. The optimized working volume of the tubes increase the storage capacity of manual freezers and automated stores.

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.

PhD candidate at LUMC Nienke van Rein commented, “I chose Micronic because of the space saving 96-well rack format; more sample material could fit in the freezer compared to products from other companies. The screw cap also stays securely in place during long-term storage in -80°C."
