Overview

FluidX 48-Format, 1.8ml Internal Thread, Jacket, Tri-Coded Cryo Tube; available capped or uncapped, racked or bulk

  • Offers unequaled sample audit traceability, enabling sample tracking and data sharing between multiple users, labs, locations and automation capabilities
  • Designed and developed with broad compatibility in mind, the tubes perform without compromise in conjunction with automated barcode reading, capping and sample management systems from FluidX and all other industry-recognized manufacturers
  • Provides a lifelong and secure chain of custody for samples in biobanks, compound libraries and a broad range of biological and chemical stores, including cryogenic storage
  • Developed to exceed the demands of sample security, management and tracking in modern high density storage applications
  • Each tube features a permanent 2D code laser etched in high contrast on the tube base, a permanent 1D linear barcode and human-readable number laser etched in high-contrast on the tube side
  • All three codes are identical and auditing processes guarantee all three codes match; standard 2D coding option is black on white
  • Manufactured 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
  • Suitable for sealing with screw caps
  • Suitable for cryogenic storage*

*Not for use in liquid phase nitrogen

Capping options

Screw caps

  • Automation friendly co-molded screw caps for internal thread tubes eliminate the possibility of over tightening
  • Co-molded caps eliminate the failures in caps using a silicone O-ring
  • Double start thread engages in a maximum rotation of 180°, facilitating automation

Racking options

48 format SBS racks

  • TwistLock: prevents tubes rotating within the rack to enable automated capping and de-capping of screw caps; provided as standard with the option available to remove
  • 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 cryobox rack option available for cryogenic sample storage, holding 81 tubes in 9x9 array
  • Alternatively, 136.2mm x 136.2mm PC cryobox rack option available for cryogenic sample storage, holding 100 tubes in 10x10 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
