Micronic ( have announced a new datasheet that details their range of 'black tubes and capping products' designed to ensure the integrity of light sensitive samples, even over long-term storage periods.

Many substances are affected in some way by light. The importance of maintaining the sample integrity of biomolecules and organic molecules used in regulated environments including the pharmaceutical, cell & DNA Repository, food and cosmetic industries is well documented.

Produced from the highest quality, FDA approved polypropylene, in a state-of-the-art class 7 automated manufacturing facility, Micronic black tubes are supplied 'sample safe' free from additives or leachates. All Micronic black tubes are also fully validated RNase and DNase free meaning they can be used with even the most sensitive biological samples. Offered in a wide range of working volumes (0.5ml, 0.75ml, 1.1ml, 1.4ml, 7.5ml) and 2D-coded or non-coded formats - a Micronic black tube is available for almost any light sensitive sample storage application.

The Micronic black tube range is fully compatible with all Micronic storage racks, tube capping systems and tube readers. Storage racks, like the Roborack-96 and Loborack-96, are also available with a black polypropylene cover to ensure the integrity of light sensitive samples. Manufactured to industry leading strict tolerances the precision and absolute consistency of Micronic black tubes maximises operational uptime when used with automated cherry picking (tubesorter) and other sample handling systems.
