Micronic Europe BV has announced it will display its latest products for traceable sample storage at the forthcoming International Society for Biological and Environmental Repositories (ISBER 2010) in Rotterdam, The Netherlands (11th-14th May 2010).
Visitors to Stand 49 will be able to review and discuss Micronic's extensive range of products that address the evolving sample storage challenges in biobanking and repository operation.
Micronic offers a full range of biological and cryogenic sample storage tubes, sealing arrangements, tube racks, tube sorters and Track-ITTM - a new Sample Management System interfaced to a 2D code reader that allows you to reliably and efficiently organise and track individual samples. Also on display for the first time will be the MX4 - a semi-automated sample handling and verification system. The MX4 allows users to import a worklist for sample cherry picking, step through each tube pick and place, verify each tube movement with an integrated 2D barcode rack reader, and provide an output file of the destination rack content. The MX4 tube picking is controlled by the operator and allows full control over the speed and throughput of the system.
Manufactured in a class 7 clean room production facility - Micronic screw top tubes are certified RNase / DNase free and non-toxic, according to the USP class VI test, making them the ideal high integrity storage vessel for liquid or solid biological samples at ultra low temperatures. Each Micronic screw top tube has a unique 2D code that identifies the sample, its coordinates within a 96-tube rack, the particular rack and the location of the rack in the freezer. Incorporating a novel 'single turn' screw cap mechanism - Micronic screw top tubes ensure that accessing samples is a simple and rapid process. The internal 'V' shape of each Micronic screw top tube ensures the lowest possible dead volume and maximum sample recovery. Designed to fit 96 individual tubes into a standard footprint rack optimises valuable freezer space and ensures automation compatibility.
Dedicated to the design and production of innovative sample storage tubes, accessories and instruments over the last 25 years, Micronic is uniquely able to offer laboratories the expert advice to help them safeguard one of its most valuable assets - its samples.
