For Tubes with external thread

The Screw Caps for tubes with an external thread in 96-well format are compatible with Micronic tubes in the volumes 0.30ml, 0.40ml, 0,75ml, 0.80ml, 1.40ml and 2.00ml. The Screw Caps for tubes with an external thread in 48-well format are compatible with the 1.00ml, 2.00ml, 3.00ml and 4.00ml tubes from Micronic, the Screw Caps for tubes with an external thread in 24-well format are compatible with the 1.50ml, 3.00ml, 3.50ml and 6.00ml tubes from Micronic.

The Micronic Screw Caps for tubes with external thread have a triple start thread for the most optimal sealing quality, ensuring long-term sample preservation and storage at ultra-low temperatures. To prevent the Screw Cap from overturning – manually or mechanically – the screw cap is designed with a unique lock when sealed (no cap or tube exhaustion). For better handling, the screw cap also has an outside grip. The Micronic Screw Caps for tubes with an internal and external thread are available in 12 different colors.

The Screw Cap IG has an improved gripping for both manually and automated handling, the newly designed lead-in on top of the Screw Cap ensures a better tube placement and the lower height makes storage (without rack cover) in automated stores more efficient.
