Uniquely Versatile Tube Storage of Light Sensitive Samples
Product News Feb 07, 2011
Micronic Europe has announced a new 1.4ml amber polypropylene storage tube that, used in conjunction with a secure screw cap, ensures the integrity of light sensitive biological samples even over long-term storage periods.
Replacing Micronic's popular 1.4ml black polypropylene storage tube - the new amber storage tube uniquely safeguards light sensitive samples while still usefully allowing visual checking of enclosed sample volume.
Supplied in a 96-position sample tube storage rack, that meets the globally recognized Society of Biomolecular Screening (SBS) standard footprint, Micronic's 1.4ml amber storage tubes are compatible with almost all automated sample handling systems. Manufactured to strict tolerances, the precision and consistency of Micronic amber storage tubes maximises operational uptime when used with automated cherry picking and other sample handling systems.
Produced from high-quality, FDA-approved polypropylene, in a class 7 automated manufacturing facility, Micronic amber storage tubes resist most organic solvents and are supplied 'sample safe', free from additives or leachates. Micronic amber storage tubes are also fully validated RNase / DNase and pyrogen free, meaning they can be used to store the most sensitive biological samples.
Available in non-coded, alphanumeric coded and laser encrypted 2D coded formats - a choice of Micronic amber tubes are available to suit all light sensitive sample storage needs.
If required Micronic amber storage tubes can be supplied sterile, gamma radiated, precapped with screw caps for convenience or fitted with Snap Tube locks to secure the tubes into the wells in the rack to prevent sample loss from overturned racks.
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.
