Micronic offers a complete line of sample storage tubes and caps that fit in the 96-well, 48-well or 24-well ANSI/SLAS standard (formerly known as ANSI/SBS standard) rack format. The comprehensive range includes tubes with volumes ranging from 0.30mL to 6.00mL which are suitable for the most common laboratory storage applications.
The tubes are available non-coded, alphanumeric coded or with a unique 2D data-matrix code on the tube bottom. In addition, Micronic offers a variety of special tubes include the tubestrip-8 and amber tubes for light sensitive samples. Through our line of compatible storage racks, sealing products and equipment, Micronic is able to offer you a complete solution.
Micronic also offers the most extensive range of tube capping products, including screw caps and push caps for effective and reliable storage purposes. All tubes have an upper screw thread or double O-ring design providing a perfect seal and closure ensuring maximum sample integrity.
For effective cryogenic storage, a screw cap is recommended since it allows for the tightest seal possible. For storage from -80oC and above, either a push cap (TPE capcluster) or a screw cap can be used. The Micronic push caps are available in 96-format, and the screw caps in 96-, 48- and 24- format. All sealing products are also available in a range of colours!
All Micronic storage racks are based on the global recognised ANSI / SLAS 1-2004 through ANSI / SLAS 4-2004 standards and provide an easy and automation friendly method to store your sample storage tubes. For each sample storage tube format, Micronic offers a robust and user friendly storage rack. The racks feature a laser etched 1D rack barcode on one side of the rack and ‘twist-lock’ to prevent tubes from turning during screw (de)capping. Besides the standard barcoded racks, Micronic also offers the service to supply laser-etched 1D barcodes in customised formats.
The Micronic 0.5-1.4ml high-density tubes provide a compact storage format which can increase the storage capacity of your freezers by up to 390% over traditional storage tubes.
The 96-well SBS format of the Micronic tubes enables users to transfer samples straight from the tube to assay plates using multichannel pipettes or most robotic platforms and liquid handling systems.
Laser etched 2D Data-Matrix barcoded tubes and the 1D laser etched barcoded racks provide a permanent method of identification which will not rub off or fade due to cryogenic temperatures or in the presence of solvents. Never again will you have to deal with unidentififiable samples due to illegible handwriting, smudged ink or stick on labels falling off.
Micronic’s Track-IT software is an inexpensive, web based, modular Laboratory Sample Management System (LSMS). Designed to maximise the efficiency of tracing your freezer samples as well as the management of transgenic animals, sequencing data, equipment and all laboratory reagents.
