  • Manufactured from high-quality virgin polypropylene
Key Features

Secure sample storage and tracking

  • Permanently laser etched 2D code on base, 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 internal thread tubes
  • Suitable for sealing with automation friendly screw caps
  • Suitable for cryogenic storage*

*Not for use in liquid phase nitrogen

Capping options

Screw caps

  • Automation friendly screw caps provide flexibility to use tubes across a range of industry-recognized automated tube handling platforms
  • A deforming compression seal more effective than a silicone alternative
  • A non-silicone seal means the cap can never be over-tightened
  • Caps and tubes are manufactured from the same material, preventing differential expansion during freeze-thaw cycles
  • A double-start thread engages in a maximum rotation of 180°, thereby facilitating automation

Racking options

48 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

Cryo racks

  • 136.2mm x 136.2mm PC or PP cryobox rack option available for cryogenic sample storage, holding 81 tubes in 9x9 array
  • Open bottom for 2D code decoding on FluidX Perception HD LF reader
  • Can be supplied with a unique 2D code identifier which can be read at the same time as the tube 2D code, for more secure sample tracking
