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.

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.
