sample storage Racks

Micronic 48-2 Rack

The Micronic 48-2 Rack is developed to hold 48 2.00ml hybrid tubes with external thread. In addition to the standard ANSI/SLAS footprint, the ULT Racks are provided with more features ideal for automation. These features include: an outstanding Twist-Lock design which prevents tubes from turning during screw (de)capping, easy lead-in tube and cover placement, closed side walls with minimal notches for perfect rack orientation, a unique automation-friendly cover lock system with which closing is achieved by simply moving the locker at each end of the cover downwards, and the inseparable 1D rack barcode for absolute tracking and tracing of the samples.

Our solutions

THE USE OF THE MOST ADVANCED MATERIALS

One of the most important properties tube storage racks need to have is their resistance against extreme conditions. Micronic conducted research on all kinds of materials and rack designs in order to come to a perfect match for use in ultra-low temperatures. As a result of extensive testing, the Micronic ULT 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 ULT Racks, as well as its tubes and caps, are manufactured and assembled under US Federal Standard 209E Class 7 clean room conditions. 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.
