Sample storage tubes

4.00ml Tubes External Thread

The 4.00ml tube with external thread has a massive working volume. The sample storage tube is ideal for solid or large volumes of liquid samples. Using externally threaded storage tubes eliminates the possibility of the sample coming into contact with the screw thread, minimizing chance of cross-contamination while improving sample integrity. This and the sturdy design of the tube make the 4.00ml tube with external thread suitable for high speed centrifuging. On the other hand, the wide opening and flat inner bottom enable easy loading and removal of tissue samples using tweezers.

Micronic 4.00ml tubes with a 2D Data-Matrix code permanently laser-etched on the bottom of the tube are the storage medium of choice for customers demanding long-term reliable code reading. The code surface of the tubes with external thread features a raised edge, which protects the 2D code against accidental scratches, ensuring absolute traceability.

Our solutions

leading the industry with sustainable products

Micronic has joined an elite group of manufacturers committed to product transparency and sustainable procurement. ACT is the first environmental impact factor label for laboratory products, developed by the non-profit My Green Lab. ACT—which stands for accountability, consistency, and transparency—is designed to provide critical information on the environmental impact of laboratory products.

The Micronic 1.40ml and 4.00ml tubes were independently audited by Sustainability Made Simple and verified by My Green Lab, and now carry the ACT label. Reading the ACT label, also known as the Environmental Impact Factor (EIF) label, is simple: the lower the score, the lower the impact on the environment in terms of manufacturing, energy and water use, packaging, and end-of-life.
