TraceTraq – 2D Barcoded Sample Storage Tubes and Racks

Product Description

2D Barcoded Sample Storage Tubes

TraceTraq™ is Biosero’s range of high-density sample storage tubes. They are designed to optimize storage of biological samples at temperatures as low as -196°C. All tubes feature a permanent, laser etched 2D barcode at the base of the tube, which when combined with Biosero’s DataPaq™ scanner and software options, provides a fast & efficient solution for managing and tracking your precious samples.

Each sample tube has a unique code and coordinates within a rack, which when decoded with the scanner guarantees that every sample is assigned a unique identity and location. Each rack has a linear barcode and human readable code lasered onto the side. For automation orientation recognition there is a matching 2D barcode lasered onto the base of the rack. With a compression ring moulded into the screw cap, TraceTraq™ caps feature outstanding leak resistance. These tubes are available in 0.75ml or 1.4ml volumes.

2D Barcode Scanning

The TraceTraq™ tubes can be de-coded using Biosero’s DataPaq™ software and BioRead scanners. The software is intuitive to use, easy to install and comes with the expertise and support from Biosero. Find out more about our range of BioRead 2D barcode scanners here.

Rack Features

Our TraceTraq™ tubes are available in SBS format, 96-tube racks which have clear one-piece lids for easy sample viewing that lock onto the rack base. The rack features a “spin-stop” design, which prevents the tubes from turning, making the screw cap versions suitable for automated decapping. The side of the rack has a linear barcode and human readable code etched onto it. The underside of the rack features a laser etched 2D barcode that matches the barcode located on the side. The 2D barcode on the underside enables a scanner to automatically determine the orientation of the rack.
