Whether you need to securely store and keep track of hundreds or even millions of samples, Thermo Scientific Matrix 2D barcoded storage tubes can simplify sample identification and tracking in your lab, among collaborators, and from compound suppliers. Each tube is permanently marked with a globally unique 2D barcode, ensuring that tubes are able to be identified when being moved, shipped or even accidentally dropped.
Permanently attached, laser-etched 2D barcode on the bottom of each tube allows you to scan and decode tubes at once without removing them from the rack, and allows data to be associated with each tube
8x12 format enables the filling of 8, 12 or 96 tubes at once with pipettes you already own
Tubes come in Latch Racks for added security and protection of samples
Built-in error correction ensures that barcodes will never be misread
100% quality control checks that every code is unique and readable
Solid, one-piece construction means there are no labels to fall off; enables storage down to cryogenic temperatures
Automated Sample Tracking
Simply scan Matrix 2D barcoded storage tubes with a Thermo Scientific VisionMate® reader and you can easily import data for a specific sample, (examples include tare weight, sample data, sample contents, source, expiration date or concentration) into any database or spreadsheet. Entire racks can also be scanned to search for a particular tube or to quickly identify samples being shipped to or arriving from different locations.
Permanent, Unique Code
Each code is laser-etched and permanently adhered to the bottom of each tube by our patented process and is chemically and abrasion resistant. We also guarantee we will never produce the same code number twice, ensuring every code number you receive is globally unique.
1.4 ml storage tubes are also available with a human readable code in addition to the 2D barcode for manual identification.
Like our blank and alphanumeric tubes, Matrix 2D barcoded storage tubes are available in the unique Latch Rack that securely protects your samples during low-temperature storage, shipping and accidental drops.
Our Latch Racks are sized to three different tube heights so you don't waste space if you need to store small volumes. Our 500& micro;l 2D barcoded storage tubes are exactly half the height of our standard 1.4 ml storage tubes so you can double your sample capacity in current storage systems.
100% QC Testing
Every 2D barcode is leak tested to ensure sample security. In addition, every tube is read before leaving our factory to ensure readability.
Integration Into Automated Systems
Matrix 2D barcoded storage tubes have been successfully integrated into most automatic tube storage systems on the market, and we offer a series of tubes and racks customized for these systems.
