Offers the security of unmatched sample traceability.

Micronic has introduced a range of laser etched alphanumeric coded sample storage tubes (0.5ml, 0.75ml, 1.1ml and 1.4ml).

The new tubes have a flat polypropylene bottom on which the alphanumeric code is encrypted with a laser.

Uniquely manufactured from a single component - the code of Micronic laser encrypted alphanumeric codes cannot fade or peel off even when subjected to repeated handling, exposure to different solvents or multiple freeze-thaw cycles.

Because code clarity will remain unchanged throughout their lifetime - Micronic laser etched alphanumeric coded tubes offer the security of unmatched sample traceability.

Traditionally alphanumeric tubes, because of their lower pricing compared to 2D coded tubes, have been incorporated into many organizations standard operating procedures (SOP).

The new Micronic laser etched alphanumeric coded tubes combine affordability with secure sample traceability.

Incorporating a smooth external flat surface - Micronic laser etched alphanumeric tubes offer an easier to read and identify alternative to traditional round bottom alphanumeric tubes for automated applications.

Manufactured from high quality polypropylene in a fully automated class 7 cleanroom environment ensures Micronic laser etched alphanumeric tubes exhibit absolute product consistency, near zero contaminants and compliance with US and European Pharmacopoeia tests.

Micronic laser etched alphanumeric tubes resist many organic solvents (DMSO, methanol, dichloromethane), may be autoclaved clean and can be repeatedly freeze-thawed without loss of product performance.

Dedicated to the design and production of innovative sample storage tubes, accessories and instruments over the last 25 years, Micronic is uniquely able to offer laboratories the expert advice to help them safeguard one of its most valuable assets - its samples.
