  • Each tube carries three unique and permanent high-contrast tube identifiers, 2D code, 1D linear barcode and a human readable number supporting sample sharing between multiple labs, locations and automation capabilities
  • Made from chemically-inert glass with low binding and low static properties ideal for dry compound storage, samples in DMSO and samples in caustic solvents
  • Manufactured using a two piece assembly process; jacket glass tubes feature a protective jacket made from high-quality virgin polypropylene
Key Features

Secure sample storage and tracking

  • Permanently laser etched, 2D code on base, 1D linear barcode and human-readable number on the 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 screw caps
  • Suitable for cryogenic storage as low as -80°C

Capping options

Screw caps

  • For the screw cap seals of glass storage tubes a silicone sealing film is used for added security and reliability
  • Customized PTFE inserts available as an option for aggressive chemicals

Racking options

24 format SBS racks

  • TwistLock: prevents the automated capping/de-capping; provided as standard, but can be removed
  • TubeLock: prevents tubes from falling out, even in lidless racks; useful in manual workflows; activate by applying pressure on the tube top, clicking it into place; tubes can be ordered pre-locked or non-locked
  • LidLock: enables racks to withstand a 1m drop test for added sample security
  • 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
