Micronic, Lelystad, the Netherlands, launched a new Screw Cap for Tubes with External Thread. The Screw Cap IG has an improved gripping for both manually and automated handling, the newly designed lead-in on top of the screw cap ensures a better tube placement, and the optimized cap height (5.8mm) makes storage in automated stores more efficient. It is available in a variety of 12 different colors.

The Screw Cap IG for Tubes with External Thread is designed to be compatible with Micronic Screw Cap Recappers and other automated systems. Hence, the Screw Cap is particularly suitable to be used in the process of standardizing and accelerating the sample storage workflow in a laboratory. Its improved sealing performance leads to a reduction in sample loss and enhanced sample integrity. The working range of the Screw Cap is between vapor phase LN² and +100°C. This makes it possible to use the cap for short-term and long-term sample storage in extreme temperatures.

Micronic Screw Caps are produced in certified class-7 clean rooms at facilities in both the Netherlands and the United States. The caps are made from the highest purity polyethylene and are free from any detectable RNase/DNase and pyrogens, according to the company. The Screw Caps are available in bulk and precapped on Micronic (Hybrid) Tubes with External Thread.
