Ensure critical samples are secure and organized with STAR SBS tubes and racks from AutoGen. From processing to storage to shipping, the STAR tri-coded tubes will never leak. Plus, our SBS 2D tube racks will not only make the storage of samples in freezers easier, efficient, and safer, but also makes storage significantly more sustainable with a smaller carbon footprint.

Why Tri-coded?

AutoGen only offers tri–coded tubes. Tri-coded tubes are permanently laser etched, 2D-code on base, 1D (linear barcode) and Human-Readable Number on the side and offer unequaled sample audit traceability, enabling sample tracking and data sharing between multiple users, labs, locations and automation capabilities. Samples are processed and shipped all over the world. Everywhere those samples go, they may encounter a different identification and processing protocol. Not every location will have access to 2D rack scanners and barcode readers. Or, they simply have a process in place to double or triple verify a sample ID. We believe the best way to capture the critical barcode information on your critical samples is with tri-coded identification.

STAR 2D TUBES

Preserving your sample is critical. Whether you’re biobanking or storing compounds, tissues, or microorganisms, the STAR tri-coded racks and tubes provide:

  • Certified to meet IATA guidelines—meaning our tubes are tested to ensure your samples are safe and secure during transportation, even under pressure.
  • Internal gasket within the cap stays secure even in the harshest conditions, preventing all leaks.
  • Laser-etched, tri-coded barcodes that are virtually impossible to remove make sample identification quick and easy.
  • Withstand temperatures as low as  -196C and are ideally arrayed in a space-saving, automation and cryo-friendly SBS rack.

STAR 48 XT

48 SBS Format, 2D Tri-coded Tubes with External Threads

The STAR 48 XT tubes lower storage and energy costs and prevent leaks and cross-contamination while working in a 48 SBS format.

These tube racks require 44-80% less space than other options on the market. Streamlined freezing save space and lowers your overall energy consumption and carbon footprint.

Compared to traditional sample tubes and racks, this storage system is more secure and easier to store thanks to the external threaded tube construction and robust rack construction with an easy lock system. Just like their 96 SBS format counterparts, these tubes are leak-proof and have gone through rigorous testing. This means they can stand up to any and all storage and shipping conditions.

STAR 96 XT

96 SBS Format, 2D Tri-coded Tubes with External Threads

Lower your storage and energy costs and prevent leaks and cross-contamination with the STAR 96 XT, 96 SBS Format Racks and Tubes.

These tube racks require 44-80% less space than other options on the market. Streamlined freezing saves space and lowers your overall energy consumption and carbon footprint.

The tubes come with a gasket component in the screw cap and external threads that achieve the best possible results in highly-demanding leak tests—certifying they will never leak. Plus, the external threads ensure none of your sample gets lost in the threading, and they allow the tubes to be as small as possible while maintaining their full working volume. This means you can store the largest possible volume of your critical sample, in the least amount of storage space.
