Low Profile Screw Caps
For sample storage facilities, each millimetre freezer space counts. Micronic is therefore proud to announce the release of the new Low Profile Screw Cap which is 6.8mm lower than the current 96-format Screw Cap from Micronic, resulting in space savings up to 33%! The Micronic Low Profile Screw Caps are ideal for automated biobanks and other laboratory facilities that need to optimize freezer space for their long-term sample storage at ultra-low temperatures.
The Low Profile Screw Cap is designed in conjunction with Professor Thomas Illig from the Hannover Unified Biobank in Germany. He commented that the Micronic Low Profile Screw Cap would be the perfect solution to economize freezer space. Read more about it in our Press Release 'Low Profile Screw Caps Save Storage Space'
Since the tube height with Low Profile Screw Cap is now identical to the tube height with a TPE Cap - the same low profile rack cover can be used for both types of caps increasing operational flexibility for organizations using both types of storage tube closures. The Low Profile Screw Cap has a Torx10 screw head which makes it ideal for automated storage facilities.
Micronic offers Low Profile Screw Caps that are compatible with the entire range of Micronic Screw Cap tubes in 96-well format: 0.50ml, 0.75ml, 1.10ml, 1.40ml and 2.00ml. The Low Profile Screw Caps are available in as many as 12 colors, ideal for cap color coding practices (visual identification). The Silicon O-rings around the base of the Low Profile Screw Caps allow for the tightest seal possible, and in turn provide maximum sample integrity for long-term storage. The unique single twist closing ensures an easy and tight sealing for sample storage tubes.
