The light-weight Novitain Rack positions 50 sample collection tubes in such a way that it is exactly compatible with the Novitain Capcluster-50.
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.
Next 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.

Rutgers University Cell & DNA Repository selected Micronic 0.75ml and 1.40ml tubes together with colored TPE caps to provide high integrity, long-term storage of samples at -80°C.
“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."
“We just want to be able to handle and store our samples easily and effortlessly. The Micronic solution supports us in this. The capping equipment and TPE push caps have been super-efficient and easy to use, The reliability of the equipment has been great with continuous usage. In addition, the contact with Micronic sales representatives and customer service is also very good."
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.
