Our solutions

DESIGNED IN COOPERATION WITH AUTOMATION COMPANIES

There is a trend among biorepositories and other laboratory facilities towards laboratory automation in order to increase and maintain sample integrity. This means that tube storage racks need to be designed in such a way that they are compatible with automated storage and handling systems. The Micronic ULT Racks therefore have an automation compatible American National Standards Institute/ Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (ANSI/SLAS) dimensional footprint.

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 1D rack barcode is inseparable with the rack for absolute tracking and tracing of the samples. The Micronic ULT Racks are already tested and in operation at low temperature automated storage systems.

Testimonials

What our customers say

“The Micronic Screw Cap Recapper is a very smoothly running, easy to use and silent device. I also think it is a great benefit that the Screw Cap Recapper is contamination-free."

“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."

"We use the Micronic sample storage products because the individual barcoded tubes allows us to easily swap tubes from plate to plate. Previously, we would make up a new plate using an aliquot of sample. By instead swapping the tubes, we no longer need to split the sample up when we need to analysis the sample again. As we have over 70,000 DNA samples, it is preferable to keep a sample in a single tube then split over several plates."
