Azenta Life Sciences has launched Cap2, a new 0.2ml PCR microcentrifuge tube featuring a novel dual-cap design with both hinged lid and screw cap to preserve the integrity of samples used in genetic testing workflows. Acting as both a collection and processing tube, sample transfer can be minimized making for greater efficiency and less wastage.
Designed to ensure sample traceability in wide ranging genetic testing workflows, including pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT) – each Cap2 tube has a unique 2D datamatrix code as well as a numerical human readable identifier to prevent sample tracking errors.
All Azenta tubes, including the new Cap2, are developed with broad compatibility in mind, performing without compromise in conjunction with automated code reading, capping and sample management systems from Azenta and all other industry-recognised manufacturers.
Manufactured from high-quality virgin polypropylene, in a class 8 cleanroom environment, each batch of tubes is tested to certify them endotoxin and DNase/RNase free as well as containing no detectable leachables or extractables. Vital considerations for sample collection tubes used in genetic testing workflows.
