Securely seal your storage tubes

Preserve the integrity of your samples with Micronic screw caps!

Micronic Screw Caps for externally threaded tubes provide a secure closure for long-term sample storage at ultra-low temperatures and securely seal tubes during transportation. The caps are available in nine different colors: grey, yellow, orange, red, light green, blue, white, purple, and light blue for 96-format and grey, yellow, orange, red, light green, blue, and transparent for 48- and 24-format tubes.

In addition to the standard Screw Cap for Tubes with External Thread, NBS Scientific also offers the Screw Cap IG that 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 lower height makes storage (without rack cover) in automated stores more efficient.
