A small benchtop solution that can read 2D codes quickly and cost effectively within seconds. The compact readers are built for high throughput and automated systems.
Micronic operates corporate integrated Quality Management System (QMS) that is certified to ISO 9001:2015.
Reducing our impact on the environment is an integral part of our continuous improvement efforts. The environmental policy of Micronic is determined by our headquarters in the Netherlands, which is certified to ISO 14001:2015.
Micronic labware is manufactured and assembled in-house in a NEN-EN-ISO14644-1 Class 7 certified clean room environment (which is comparable to the US Federal Standard 209E Class 10,000).
For the manufacturing of its long term sample storage labware products Micronic uses solely virgin plastic raw material. The raw materials and auxiliary agents are selected based on the specifications that satisfy the high quality requirements of our products. The materials are FDA approved and comply with the (USA) USP XXII tests, including class VI (Medical approved), and the European Pharmacopoeia-monograph 3.2.2 unless communicated otherwise. Material components used to produce Micronic labware can be traced via the lot number indicated on the packaging.
The materials used for Micronic tubes are the result of extensive research. One selection criteria is that no measurable amount of extractables should leach into samples.
By maintaining the highest possible hygiene level during our production processes, Micronic manufactured labware is free of any detectable RNase or DNase contamination and the endotoxin level of produced and packaged labware is limited to an acceptable minimum (< 0.01 EU/ml). Our products are periodically tested on RNase, DNase and their endotoxin levels by independent expert organizations.
The Micronic 2D Data-Matrix codes and 1D barcodes are produced conform industry standards. The 2D Data-Matrix code (which adheres to the ECC200 standard) and 1D barcode (type 128B) are laser-etched into the code area and are guaranteed unique.
Products produced by Micronic are tested according to AQL inspection level G2 and AQL value 0.4.
Micronic labware products are developed and manufactured in compliance with the European Directive 98/79/EC for In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices, Annex III.
Upon request, Micronic products can be supplied gamma irradiated or ethylene oxide treated.
Our products comply with the IATA requirements for the transport of diagnostic specimens (UN packing instruction 602 and 650), assuming that our products are properly used (closed).
If you have any additional questions on the quality and safety of our products, please feel free to contact Micronic at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To enable fast, accurate and efficient sample identification, Micronic offers an extensive code reader range which consists of whole rack and single tube readers. The high-end DR700 and DR710 Rack Readers feature deep focus image technology (CCD imaging technology) ensuring the highest accuracy 2D code reading, and an anti-frost system so that tube codes from even frozen samples can be read. The DR700 has a passive anti-frost system, whereas the DR710 has an active anti-frost system. The DR700 and DR710 have a scan time of approximately 7 seconds. To read 1D rack barcodes simultaneously, the Side Barcode Reader is available.
The Micronic Rack Reader DR500 and DR505 are small benchtop solutions that can read 2D codes quickly and cost effective within seconds. The compact readers are built for high throughput and automated systems. The DR505 version has a passive anti-frost system, which enables users to read racks filled with 2D codes tubes straight from the freezer. All Micronic Rack Readers are standard supplied with Micronic Code Reader Software to ensure an optimal performance.
"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."
“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."
The University of Edinburgh and the Natural History Museum are using, as part of the 'Insect Pollinators Initiative', the Micronic 4.00ml tube for storing the larger insects in the collection.
Using a unique tube coding system from Micronic, the Animal Sciences Group has been able to significantly improve the absolute traceability, throughput and long term storage integrity of labelled samples going through their laboratory.
