Corning barcoded tubes enhance sample storage
Corning Life Sciences
Bar Coded Storage Tubes
Corning has released a laboratory research method to streamline the throughput needs of laboratories - Corning Bar Coded Storage Tubes.
This latest offering provides researchers with a solution for enhanced sample storage, identification and retrieval, and synchronises two codes to the same ID.
This limits the risk of confusion or duplication, and enables safe and secure identification of samples.
Features: permanently attached, laser-etched 2D code on the base of every tube jacket for automation; linear barcode on the side wall of the tube jacket for barcode scanning at sample collection and receiving sites; and a marking spot on the side wall for added security.
The Bar Coded Storage Tubes provide safe, secure and seamless coordination between sample preparation and secondary screening of high-value lead compounds, according to the company.
Corning's Bar Coded Storage Tubes also feature a 2D bar code with a 14 x 14 pixel resolution that allows more coding space than the traditional 12 x 12 pixel size, minimising the possibility of duplication with existing tube sequences.
The leak-tested tubes offer customers the choice of a screw cap or a septum lid for automation compatibility.
The tubes also come equipped with an SBS footprint tube box with a locking feature.
Low-profile flask features Corning Cellbind surface, optimises storage and incubator space and enables increased lab efficiency
Revolutionary new design provides ten times more surface growth area than standard T175cm flask, reduces harvest time and saves incubator space
New sizes provide customers with improved capabilities for cell migration and cell invasion assay, and help conserve test reagents and compounds
Unique surface improves consistency and provides more uniform cell attachment across well, dish and flask bottoms, allowing for higher cell yields
Anachem's unique permanent custom bar coding service utilises vials each with their own individual bar code that guarantee the identity of their contents and position within a stored location
