The Novitain Capcluster-50 offers an ideal solution for the secure short-term sealing of 13mm diameter sample collection tubes in the 50-well format Novitain Rack.
In medical laboratories analytical tests are usually conducted on clinical specimens (e.g. blood or urine) in order to obtain information about the health of a patient as pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment or prevention of a disease. Medical laboratories are thus focused on applied science mainly on a production-like basis, as opposed to research laboratories that focus on basic science on an academic basis.
During specimen collection, blood must be drawn in a specific order to avoid cross-contamination of additives between sample collection tubes. The procedure is the same for all types of tubes or instruments used. It is vital that the order is followed not only to avoid contamination, but also to ensure accuracy of test results. The smallest error could mean that the patient might not receive the most appropriate care and treatment for his specific case.
In addition to avoiding cross-contamination and assuring accuracy of test results during the pre-analytical and analytical phase, these elements are also important during the post-analytical storage phase of the blood collection tubes. In case additional tests need to be conducted, a medical laboratory needs to be assured that the sample has not been contaminated during the storage procedure. Micronic offers the unique NovitainTM Post-Analytical Capping Solution to ensure sample integrity during storage.

“We chose Micronic because of their compatibility with liquid handling robotics, validated ultra-low binding tube properties, highly satisfying split push cap sealing performance, and the assured traceability that their laser etched 1D barcoded rack and 2D coded tubes provide."
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 called TraXis 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.
“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."
