Snap Tube from Micronic is a mechanism that enables sample storage tubes to be
securely locked into storage racks. When users apply downward pressure, the
Snap Tube securely locks sample storage tubes into the storage rack. To
unlock, the user simply applies a gentle upward pressure, and the tubes
become free to be handled by an automated tube-picking system. Snap Tube
ensures samples in non-coded, alphanumeric, and 2-D–coded tubes are kept
secure during transport or storage, reports the company. The Micronic
storage rack range is based on the ANSI/SBS-1 (2004) Footprint Dimensions,
as registered and designated by the American National Standards Institute.
The racks accommodate 96 individual tubes in the industry standard
configuration and are fully compatible with all commercial automated sample
handling and storage systems, according to the company. The racks are
available sterile and RNase/DNase-free and with custom specific barcodes to
enable automated tracking.
