Key Features
  • Secure Sample Storage & Tracking
    • Permanently laser etched 2D code on base, 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
    • Suitable for sealing with automation friendly screw caps
    • Suitable for cryogenic storage*

    *Not for use in liquid phase nitrogen

  • Capping Options

    Screw caps

    • Automation friendly screw caps for internal thread tubes eliminate the possibility of over tightening
    • Double start thread engages in a maximum rotation of 180°, facilitating automation
  • Racking Options

    48 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 racks

    • 136.2mm x 136.2mm PP cryobox rack option available for cryogenic sample storage, holding 81 tubes in 9x9 array
    • Alternatively, 136.2mm x 136.2mm PP cryobox rack option available for cryogenic sample storage, holding 100 tubes in 10x10 array
    • Open bottom for 2D code decoding on Azenta Life Sciences 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
