CryzoTraq – 2D Barcoded Cryogenic Storage Tubes and Racks


2D Barcoded Cryogenic Storage Vials

Biosero’s range of CryzoTraq™ cryogenic vials are designed for cryogenic storage of biological specimens at temperatures as low as -196°C. The range features outstanding leak resistance with a LDPE compression ring moulded into the screw cap. For information on the tests performed to ensure leak-free tubes, download our white paper. The tubes are available in 2ml or 5ml volumes with an internally or externally threaded cap.

All CryzoTraq™ tubes have a 2D datamatrix barcode inserted in the base of the tube. The insert is secured in place by the use of ultrasound to weld it into place. During the manufacturing process, the linear barcode is printed onto the side of the tube first, and the 2D code is automatically generated from the linear barcode therefore ensuring the two barcodes will always be the same with no errors

2D Barcode Scanning

The 2D barcoded CryzoTraq™ cryogenic vials can be de-coded using Biosero’s DataPaq™ Multirack scanner.
With various options for rack configurations, the DataPaq™ Multirack scanner quickly decodes the 2D barcodes. Find out more about our range of BioRead 2D barcode scanners here.

Quality and Certification

Our vials are manufactured in accordance with ISO 13485:2003, in compliance with ISO 14644 and 14698 (Federal Standard 209) and in a Class 7 cleanroom (Class 10,000). The vials are certified free from DNA, DNase, RNase, pyrogens and ATP. Each lot is sterilised with beta radiation. Our tubes are manufactured from medical grade polypropylene and the caps from medical grade polyethylene.

Triple Coded

In addition to the Datamatrix code on the base the code is reproduced with a Code 128 linear barcode and human readable text on the side.

CryzoTraq™ Cryogenic Boxes

The CryzoTraq™ range includes polycarbonate boxes for storage of the CryzoTraq™ tubes. They are available in 81 or 100 place boxes. These durable cryogenic storage boxes are designed to be used at temperatures between -196°C and +121°C (i.e. suitable for autoclaving). A transparent cover with numbering allows the user to see the contents of the box, and is keyed to the base to prevent misalignment. The 81 place box has a colored grid, while the 100 place box has a pegged base to maximize space. Four colors are available: blue, red, green and yellow.

Our CryzoTraq™ tubes are also available in SBS format racks of 48 tubes.

CryzoTraq™ Cryogenic Box Labelling

The base of each cryogenic box has a 2D barcode laser etched on to the base. This is used when scanning the tubes, as the DataPaq™ 2D barcode scanning software uses this extra 2D barcode to determine the orientation of the rack on the scanner bed. In addition, the side of the box is laser etched with a code 128 barcode.
