When mounted on the side of a Micronic Rack Reader, both the 1D rack barcode and 2D Data-Matrix tube codes can be read simultaneously.
The comprehensive Micronic Code Reader Software is fully compatible with all Micronic Rack Readers. The user friendly software is easy to use, gives reliable code readings and can be easily integrated into any laboratory sample database.
Developed on the basis of extensive user feedback, the Micronic Code Reader Software features an automatic re-read function that ensures all the codes in a rack are deciphered quickly. The re-read function reduces downtime in automated workflows. After a rack is scanned, each cell contains a high-quality image of the code and tube ID, as well as a ‘no tube, no code’ feature if a tube cannot be found. Additional useful features include optimal speed for coding and decoding, adjustment controls for brightness, contrast and threshold to optimize tube code display, flexible order of the export fields, software upgrades without losing settings and an enhanced LIMS interface. Furthermore, the Code Reader Software features an automatic code polarity recognition function, which allows users to scan white on black code surfaces and black on white code surfaces. This feature enables users to read 2D codes from black and white surfaces without changing settings. All features in the new software are included as standard at no extra cost with free upgrades and technical support.

Rutgers University Cell & DNA Repository selected Micronic 0.75ml and 1.40ml tubes together with colored TPE caps to provide high integrity, long-term storage of samples at -80°C.
For its Rotterdam Study, the oldest long-term population health study in the Netherlands, Erasmus Medical Center has switched to the compact 2D coded tube system from Micronic for the storage of its biological samples.
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."
This study is a great example of how Micronic products are used in laboratories around the world preserving the integrity of samples for many years.
