To address the needs of organizations performing low-volume genomics,Micronic, Lelystad, the Netherlands,has developed a 0.30 mL tube with external thread that enables miniaturization of the reaction volume required in genomic applications. The tube cuts out intermediate plates and is more accessible for low-volume liquid handlers. In addition, with its working volume of 210 µL, the automation-friendly tube is suited for RNA/DNA libraries, unique aliquoting, and storage capacity with multiple access. The 0.30 mL tube is the smallest size in a range of new designs featuring an external thread. Using externally threaded tubes for sample storage eliminates the possibility of the sample coming into contact with the screw thread, reducing the chance of cross-contamination while improving sample integrity. Due to thick tube walls, the tube has a sturdy design and supports ultra-low temperature storage. The triple thread of the tubes enables closure and horizontal placement of the cap to ensure long-term sample preservation and storage. The screw cap also has a triple start thread and is available in six colors. For more information, visit Micronic.
