FluidX Screw Caps

FluidX screw caps have been developed to exceed the demands of sample security, management and tracking in modern high-density storage applications

  • Optimal seal quality and sample security
  • Suitable for cryogenic storage
  • Made from high-quality virgin PP; production sterile
  • Available in cap carriers or bulk
  • For use with external/internal thread tubes
Overview

FluidX Screw Caps; available with external or internal thread, in carrier or bulk

  • Developed to exceed the demands of sample security, management and tracking in modern high-density storage applications
  • Designed for reduced sample loss: significant amounts of liquid can become trapped within a standard design screw cap, resulting in potential loss of valuable sample
  • This hollow area on the cap can catch sample, and surface tension then makes cap removal difficult
  • Studies demonstrate that FluidX cap design, with a reduced hollow, reduces this effect by lowering liquid retention whilst maintaining seal quality
  • Compatible with all FluidX sample storage tubes with a screw top, caps are available for use with either external or internal thread FluidX screw top tubes
  • Manufactured from high-quality virgin polypropylene
Key Features

Practical design

  • High chemical resistance
  • Autoclavable
  • Available in up to 10 different colors to aid sample identification
  • Suitable for sealing external and internal thread tubes
  • Broad operating temperature range*: -196°C to +121°C

*Not for use in liquid phase nitrogen

Options

External thread screw caps, standard

  • 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

External thread screw caps, automation friendly

  • Automation friendly options, available in FluidX cap carriers for use with automated capping/de-capping systems
  • Automation friendly screw caps provide flexibility to use tubes across a range of industry-recognized automated tube handling platforms

Internal thread screw caps, automation friendly

  • 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
