The products to be featured at the meeting offer unique solutions for the clinical market.

WHEATON® today highlighted products to be featured at the 2014 AACC Annual Meeting that provide unique solutions addressing the specific needs of clinical laboratory and other clinical life sciences customers. These products showcase the company’s ongoing commitment to provide a range of distinctive products that provide solutions to the growing clinical testing sector.
WHEATON’S CryoElite Tissue Vials are designed for the safe, secure and effective cryopreservation of biological tissue specimens, which are essential for advances in biomedical research and have demanding requirements for cryogenic storage. They provide researchers a uniform vial able to maintain sample integrity while maximizing storage capacity and organization. CryoElite Tissue Vials were developed with input from industry thought leaders for the high performance tissue banking requirements of anatomical pathology departments, clinical trial organizations and biorepository and biobanking facilities. They offer researchers and clinicians who work with biological specimens ease of use, convenience and security for their precious samples.
MicroLiter Chromatography Vials are the industry’s most versatile and innovative, designed for high precision, trouble-free operation for both GC and HPLC applications. All MircroLiter Vials are Class 10,000 clean room packed, making them the clear choice for challenging clinical LOD and LOQ assays and limited quantity specimens and unknown targets.   A complete range of size and closure types are available, designed to the tightest tolerances to ensure that they exceed all autosampler specifications.  When high throughput applications require the use of glass vials, the MicroLiter MPSS allows for robotic liquid handling with the patented “uLmat” that eliminates leakage and cross contamination between wells.
Our line of High Recovery Vials has a unique patented interior bottom design, allowing for maximum retrieval of contents and enabling more tests to be conducted from a single vial, providing greater resource efficiency for in vitro diagnostics and diagnostic kits. They are designed for manual or automated handling and storage, and are especially useful for high value reagents and samples, reducing product waste by 99% and enabling full product retrieval without the need to overfill.
“We are investing substantial resources to better understand the specific needs of the clinical lab customer and create product solutions addressing those needs, by incorporating innovative, value-added features that help them do their jobs more effectively and efficiently,” said Wayne L. Brinster, CEO and President of WHEATON. “Our CryoElite Tissue Vials provide crucial performance advantages to the rapidly growing tissue banking field; our High Recovery Vials offer much-needed efficiencies to users of high value reagents; and our high precision, versatile, easy to use MicroLiter Chromatography Vials and other WHEATON specialty products show how our 125-year commitment to ongoing innovation and excellence help bring the benefits of scientific advances to our customers and all those they serve.”
