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.
