A wide shallow opening enables easy loading and removal of tissue samples using tweezers. In addition to storage, the tubes can also be used for secure transportation.
Drawing upon over 35 years of experience in manufacturing and supplying traceable sample storage solutions to research centers and laboratory facilities, Micronic has developed a Next Generation Ultra- Low Temperature Tube Storage Rack Range. The Micronic Ultra-Low Temperature (ULT) Racks do not simply have a nicer design – they are better in every way. The racks have many unique features including its extremely strong design for cryogenic storage, a novel “icebreaker” cover lock mechanism, cover prints indicating rack and tube type, rack orientation marks and a highly transparent cover which enables easy visual checking of the enclosed samples.
Precision manufactured in a certified Class 7 clean room production facility, the Micronic ULT Racks are based on the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (ANSI/SLAS) standards for storage racks and accommodate 96, 48 or 24 tubes. Absolute traceability and reproducibility on the racks is ensured through novel laser-etched alphanumeric visual location aids on top of the racks and a unique laser-etched 1D barcode on the side of the racks. The open bottom design of the storage racks facilitate quick defrosting of samples.

“After a comprehensive evaluation of commercially available consumables we selected Micronic 0.75ml and 1.4ml tubes together with screw caps and Roborack storage racks to provide high integrity, long-term storage of our human blood, serum and plasma samples at –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.
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."
