Sample Storage Racks

Micronic 138-2 HD Rack

The Micronic 138-2 HD Rack is developed for 138 individual 0.75ml internally threaded or externally threaded (hybrid) tubes, or for 0.80ml externally threaded tubes. With its honeycomb design, the high density rack increases the number of samples that can be stored up to 43% compared to a standard rack in the ANSI/SLAS footprint. Absolute traceability and reproducibility on the racks is ensured through a unique laser etched 1D barcode on the side of the racks. The open bottom design of the storage racks facilitates quick defrosting of samples and permits tubes to be manipulated by robotic systems avoiding time-consuming procedures.

THE USE OF THE MOST ADVANCED MATERIALS

The Micronic HD Rack is made to store more samples in an ANSI/SLAS format rack, and is especially designed to be compatible with automated processes. The rack side walls are closed for easy gripping with most robotic arms. In addition, the rack uses a unique open bottom design, which permits tubes to be manipulated by robotic systems avoiding time-consuming procedures. The rack contains twist-lock to be effective when twist-lock tubes are used. The Micronic HD Racks are manufactured from virgin Polycarbonate. Racks made from this material have excellent properties for low temperature conditions which make them ideal for long-term use in automated cryogenic storage facilities. The material used to manufacture the racks is selected on quality and the highest purity levels. The racks have an extremely strong design which minimizes deformation due to temperature changes.

The Micronic HD Racks, as well as its tubes, caps, and other racks are manufactured and assembled under NEN-EN-ISO14644-1 Class 7 certified clean room environment (which is compatible to the US Federal Standard 209E class 10.000). Micronic manufactured products comply with the highest injection molding standards and are free of any detectable RNase or DNase contamination. Micronic is also able to limit the endotoxin (pyrogen) level of produced and packaged articles to an acceptable minimum (< 0.01 EU/ml) by maintaining the highest possible hygiene level during the production processes.

Testimonials

What our customers say

"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."
