  • Dual coded tissue tubes are specifically designed for long term storage of tissue samples
  • Each tube features a permanent 2D code laser etched on the tube base, and a permanent 2D code and human readable number laser etched on the tube side
  • Tube design optimized for manual handling of tissue samples
  • Manufactured from high-quality virgin polypropylene
Key Features

Secure sample storage and tracking

  • Permanently laser etched 2D code on tube base, 2D code and human readable number on tube side, ensuring a permanent link between sample and data
  • 2D codes readable without removing tubes from racks
  • High contrast 2D codes are more reliably readable in frost or condensation conditions
  • 100% quality control, each tube is tested to ensure both readability and uniqueness
  • Leak tested to ensure sample security
  • External thread tubes provide greater working volume than same height internal thread tubes
  • Suitable for sealing with standard screw caps or automation friendly screw caps
  • Suitable for cryogenic storage*

*Not for use in liquid phase nitrogen

Optimized for tissue sample storage

  • Flat bottom for easy sample extraction
  • Straight sides optimized for forceps use
  • External thread is easy to tighten with gloves or forceps

Capping options

Screw caps

  • Automation friendly screw caps provide flexibility to use tubes across a range of industry-recognized automated tube handling platforms
  • Deforming compression seal is more effective than a silicone alternative
  • Cap and tube manufactured from the same material, preventing differential expansion during freeze-thaw cycles
  • Double start thread engages in a maximum rotation of 180°, facilitating automation
  • Non-silicone seal means the cap can never be overtightened

Racking options

24 format SBS racks

  • Automatic rack orientation: a unique 2D code rack identifier readable at the same time as the tube 2D code; for automatic rack orientation and secure sample tracking
  • Direct laser etching: a cutout window on the rack sides allow the linear barcode to be read more easily; linear barcodes can be laser etched directly onto racks
