Micronic, Lelystad, the Netherlands, has launched a 0.30 mL tube with external thread that enables miniaturization of reaction volumes required in genomic applications. The tube eliminates the need for intermediate screening plates and is designed to be more accessible for low-volume liquid handlers. In addition, an automation-friendly 0.30 mL tube, with a working volume of 210 µL, is ideal for RNA/DNA libraries, offering unique aliquoting and storage capacity with multi-access. After the company’s 1.40 mL and 0.75 mL tubes, the 0.30 mL tube is the next 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 excellent properties for ultra-low temperature storage. For more information, visit Micronic.
