Sample storage tubes

Tubestrip-8 & Tubes for Light Sensitive Samples

Tubestrip-8: Micronic offers an economical, non-coded solution for storing up to 8 samples in a linked row (1.40ml), with the same features and benefits as other Micronic tubes. The Micronic TPE Capband-8 or EVA Capband-8 are available for closure.

Amber tubes for light sensitive samples: The Amber storage tube uniquely safeguards light sensitive samples while still usefully allowing visual checking of enclosed sample volume. The tubes (including code area) are manufactured of the highest-purity Amber Polypropylene.

Our solutions

Tubes for Light Sensitive Samples

Amber tubes are designed from special amber colored material (sample remains visible) to eliminate sample degradation by exposure to light. The wavelength absorbtion or blocking: 190-400nm (ultraviolet). Examples of analytes that are light sensitive and can therefore be perfectly stored in the Amber tubes: Bilirubin, Erythrocyte Protoporphyrin or Carotene.

Testimonials

What our customers say

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.

"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."
