Optimized Screw Cap for Automated Handling
Micronic, leader in innovative sample storage and automation solutions, launches
the new the Screw Cap Ultra. The
Screw Cap Ultra is the latest addition to the range of caps for tubes with an
internal thread that Micronic offers to seal tubes. The design of the cap is optimized for automated and manual handling. The high-quality silicon O-ring of the cap fits
inside the sample storage tube, creating a ''hard'' stop between the cap and the
tube. This unique closure
also enhances the sealing performance for tubes with an internal thread.
The Screw Cap Ultra is available in 4 different premium ''pearl'' colors:
blue, light green, yellow and red. The different cap colors enrich the tube
identification process. The color provides a visual clue that works faster than
text alone. By adding cap color coding next to 1D and 2D barcodes, users can
speed up sample storage and retrieval time, eliminate human errors, and reduce
the risk of lost samples.
Cap Ultra is designed to be compatible with the Micronic Screw Cap Recappers and
other automated systems. Hence, the cap is particularly suitable to be
used in the process of standardizing the workflow in a laboratory. The improved
sealing performance of the cap leads to a reduction of sample loss and an enhanced
sample integrity. The working range of the Screw Cap Ultra is between: Vapor
phase LN² and +100°C. This makes it possible to use the cap for short-term and
long-term sample storage in extreme temperatures.
The Micronic caps are produced in certified class-7 clean rooms at
facilities in both the Netherlands and the United States. The caps are made
from the highest purity polypropylene (CE-IVD) and are RNase/DNase and pyrogen
free. The caps are available in bulk and precapped on Micronic
Tubes with Internal Thread.
