Laser Etched 2D Coded Storage Tubes
Identifying your sample via a code on the tube can be done in a number of ways. However the most reliable in terms of long-term identification and tracking of samples is via a 2D coding on the bottom of the tubes. However not all 2D coded sample storage tubes, even those using the same coding system, offer the same storage performance.
Barcodes on Micronic 2D Data Matrix and 2D TraXis coded tubes are permanently laser-etched into the tube surface making them especially resistant to solvent attack and wear. Uniquely manufactured from a single component - the code in Micronic laser encrypted 2D codes cannot fade or peel off even when subjected to repeated handling and freeze-thaw cycles. Because code clarity will remain unchanged throughout the lifetime of a Micronic 2D coded tube - they offer unmatched secure sample traceability.
A new white paper available from Micronic examines factors affecting establishing a secure traceable stored sample including robustness of the tube coding, the purity of polymer used for manufacturing tubes and having effective means of sealing tubes.
Manufactured to industry-leading strict tolerances the precision and tube-to-tube consistency of Micronic sample storage tubes maximises uptime when used with automated handling systems. Produced in an automated Class 7 clean room environment from additive-free, high purity polypropylene the long term integrity of samples stored in Micronic tubes is unmatched.
Dedicated to the design and production of innovative sample storage tubes, accessories and instruments over the last 25 years, Micronic is uniquely able to offer laboratories the expert advice to help them safeguard one of its most valuable assets - its samples.
