SAMPLE STORAGE I TUBES
Sample storage tubes in a SBS 96-, 48- or 24-well format
reduce the space and minimize the cost of sample storage.
Permanent laser etched tube identification (2D Data-Matrix
and Traxis) ensures that your valuable samples are traceable
throughout your sample library.
Range of 2D Data-Matrix coded tubes in
96-, 48- and 24-well format
Micronic can supply a suitable tube for every storage
application in your laboratory. For storage of micro or small
samples the 96 format storage tubes are available in a range of
0.50ml, 0.75ml, 1.10ml, 1.40ml, 2.00ml and 2.50ml.
For storage of macro (solid) samples Micronic provides a
range of sample storage tubes with a larger capacity. We offer
a 4.00ml tube (gross volume) on a 48 format and a 6.00ml and
7.50ml tube (gross volumes) on a 24 format.
Typically septum seal pushcaps are used till -80ºC. For cryo­
storage (vapor phase LN2) the screwcaps with silicon O-ring
are the most ideal solution. Both options ensure secure longterm storage of all your precious samples.

SAMPLE STORAGE I CAPS
Micronic offers a range of tube capping products. For effective
cryogenic storage a screwcap with silicon O-ring can be
used. For storage from -80ºC and above either a TPE septum
pushcap (TPE capcluster) or a screwcap can be used. All tubes
have a upper inner thread or double O-ring design providing a
perfect sealing and ensuring maximum sample integrity.

SAMPLE HANDLING I READERS
To enable fast, accurate and efficient sample identification Micronic offers a range of single tube readers and whole rack
scanners. Micronic rack scanners are bench top scanners
that can read 24-, 48-, 96- and 384-format coded tubes (2D
Data-Matrix or Traxis).
The Tracxer Code Reader RS210 is a small bench top rack
scanner that can read both 2D Data-Matrix and Traxis codes
within 5 seconds, which is fast enough to maintain the sample
temperature. The Tracxer Code Reader features an easy to
use single tube reading option. The user friendly software
provides an ideal solution to optimize your sample traceability.
A low cost solution rack reader is the Tracxer Code Reader
RS297. This scanner identifies a whole rack with 2D DataMatrix or Traxis tubes within 15 seconds. The user friendly
software enables easy transfer of the tube ID’s into any other
(database) program.
The 1D Rack Barcode Reader BC210 is available as
accessory for the Tracxer Code Reader RS210. By making
use of these two products simultaneously, the Tracxer
software can read both the 1D barcode of the rack and the
2D codes of the tubes within 5 seconds.
To identify single tubes we offer an easy to use singe tube
reader. The Single Tube Reader TS201 can read any 2D
Data-Matrix coded tube within 0.5 seconds. Simply place
one tube in the adapter and the tube ID will appear in any
program using keyboard wedge technology (USB connection,
no software installation).
