Overview

Offers unequaled sample audit traceability, enabling sample tracking and data sharing between multiple users, labs, locations and automation capabilities. Designed and developed with broad compatibility in mind, the tubes perform without compromise in conjunction with automated barcode reading, capping and sample management systems from Azenta Life Sciences and all other industry-recognized manufacturers.

Provides a lifelong and secure chain of custody for samples in biobanks, compound libraries and a broad range of biological and chemical stores, including cryogenic storage. Developed to exceed the demands of sample security, management and tracking in modern high density storage applications.

Each tube features a permanent 2D code laser etched in high contrast on the tube base, a permanent 1D linear barcode and human-readable number laser etched in high-contrast on the tube side. All three codes are identical and auditing processes guarantee all three codes match; standard 2D coding option is black on white.

Key Features
  • Secure Sample Storage & Tracking
    • Permanently laser etched 2D code on base, 1D linear barcode and human readable number on the side, ensuring a permanent link between sample and data
    • 2D codes readable without removing tubes from racks
    • High contrast 2D codes are more reliably readable in frost or condensation conditions
    • 100% quality control, each tube is tested to ensure both readability and uniqueness
    • Leak tested to ensure sample security
    • External thread tubes provide greater working volume than internal thread tubes
    • Suitable for sealing with screw caps or TPE septum caps
    • Suitable for cryogenic storage*

    *Not for use in liquid phase nitrogen

  • Capping Options

    Screw caps

    • A deforming compression seal more effective than a silicone alternative
    • A non-silicone seal means the cap can never be over-tightened
    • Caps and tubes are manufactured from the same material, preventing differential expansion during freeze-thaw cycles
    • A double-start thread engages in a maximum rotation of 180°, thereby facilitating automation

    TPE septum caps

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

    96 format SBS racks

    • TwistLock: prevents tubes rotating within the rack to enable automated capping and de-capping of screw caps; provided as standard with the option available to remove
    • TubeLock: prevents tubes from falling out, even in lidless racks; useful in manual workflows; activate by applying pressure on the tube top, clicking it into place; tubes can be ordered pre-locked or non-locked
    • LidLock: enables racks to withstand a 1m drop test for added sample security
    • Automatic rack orientation: a unique 2D code rack identifier readable at the same time as the tube 2D code; for automatic rack orientation and secure sample tracking
    • Direct laser etching: a cutout window on the rack sides allow the linear barcode to be read more easily; linear barcodes can be laser etched directly onto racks

    Cryo Storage Racks

    • 136.2mm x 136.2mm PC cryobox rack option available for cryogenic sample storage, holding 196 tubes in 14x14 array
    • Open bottom for 2D code decoding on Azenta Life Sciences range of Camera-Based Full Rack Barcode Readers
    • Can be supplied with a unique 2D code identifier which can be read at the same time as the tube 2D code, for more secure sample tracking
