Novitain TPE Push Caps offer an ideal solution for the secure short-term sealing of tubes.

Micronic has introduced a unique post-analytical capping solution for sample collection tubes containing blood or urine that require secure storage for several days in case additional tests need to be done.

Blood and urine analysis are two of the most important diagnostic tools available to clinicians testing for evidence of infection, disease or abnormalities.

Typically blood and urine is collected in vacuum tubes before being sent to a hospital laboratory for testing. After these analytical tests, the vacuum tubes need to be stored for several days in case additional tests need to be performed.

Designed in conjunction with healthcare professionals, Novitain TPE Push Caps offer an ideal solution for the secure short-term sealing of 13mm diameter sample collection tubes in a 50-tube format. These caps are manufactured from a chemically resistant medical grade hydrophobic polymer to ensure stored sample integrity.

Drawing upon proprietary Micronic technology, Novitain Capcluster-50 offers a rapid and economical solution for capping 50 individual sample tubes using the Novitain Manual Capper CV750.

The Novitain Manual Capper CV750 operates as a stand-alone device that is very easy-to-use. To operate, place the Novitain Capcluster-50 on the racked sample tubes, place the rack into the Novitain Manual Capper CV750 rack entrance and with a simple forward / reverse action of the black handle all 50 tubes are now evenly capped.

After capping 50 sample tubes in less than 2 seconds, the Novitain Capcluster-50 retaining foil can be simply removed to leave each tube individual securely capped. Each tube can be easily opened again using the tab attached to each cap without the need for additional tools.
