Standardized Long-Term Storage of Fresh Frozen Tissue Samples
The Micronic externally
provides an ideal and fully traceable storage solution for fresh frozentissue samples with a size of 0.5cm3 to 1.0cm3.
Micronic 3.00ml tissue tubes offer easy and
unambiguous identification and storage of fresh frozen tissue samples. The
tubes have a unique 2D Data-Matrix code laser encrypted on the tube bottom and
a large human readable code on the tube sidewall.
The unique 2D code identifies the sample. Scanning the Micronic 24-2
storage rack will also identify the
tube sample code with the location in the rack.For highly accurate and reliable results, the Micronic
3.00ml tissue tubes are produced from medical-grade polypropylene.
The 3.00ml tubes have a wide shallow opening
enabling easy loading / removal of tissue samples using tweezers. They are also
designed to be the ideal shape for gripping with a robotic arm, thereby
enabling simple integration into a high throughput environment. Produced
using a double injection moulding process, each Micronic 3.00ml tissue tube has
a black code surface that cannot be separated from the tube. A transparent
sidewall enables easy visual checking of the enclosed tissue sample.
To ensure high sample integrity, even down to vapour phase liquid
nitrogen temperatures, the 3.00ml tissue tube includes a novel 'single turn'
TPE / polypropylene screw cap that stays securely in place even during repeated
freeze / thaw cycles. To aid easy visual differentiation of stored samples, the
inner TPE element of the externally threaded screw cap is available in 6
