Key Features

Secure Sample Storage and Tracking

  • Tri-Coded Jacket supports sample sharing between labs and locations
  • Permanent 2D barcode laser-etched in high-contrast on the tube base
  • Permanent linear barcode laser etched in high-contrast on the tube side
  • Permanent Human Readable Number laser etched on tube side
  • Equally suitable for sealing with either screw caps or TPE septum caps
  • External thread tubes provide greater working volume than internal thread tubes compared to the same height internal thread tube
  • FluidX tubes have been leak tested to ensure sample security


Screw Caps

  • Deforming compression seal is more effective than a silicone alternative
  • Non-silicone seal means the cap can never be overtightened
  • 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



TPE Septum Caps

  • Cost-effective sealing option for samples that are only accessed occasionally
  • Septum caps are supplied in 96-format back mats to facilitate automation


96-Well Format SBS Racks

  • TwistLock: prevents tubes rotating within the rack to enable automated capping and decapping of screw caps, provided as standard
  • LidLock: racks fitted with a LidLock latch are designed to withstand a 1m drop test for added sample security 
  • Automatic Rack Orientation: racks are supplied with a unique 2D barcode identifier which can be read at the same time as the tube 2D barcode, to provide automatic rack orientation and more secure sample tracking
  • Direct Laser Etching: linear barcodes are permanently etched directly onto racks

14 x 14 Cryo Storage Racks

  • 133mm x 133mm polypropylene cryobox rack option available for cryogenic sample storage
  • Holds 196 tubes in 14 x 14 array
  • Open bottom for 2D barcode decoding on FluidX Perception LF reader
  • Cryo racks can be supplied with a unique 2D barcode identifier which can be read at the same time as the tube 2D barcode, to provide more secure sample tracking
