2D Barcoded Tube System

Biobanking, Transfusion Medicine, Compound Management, Forensics   

Elkay (UK) have partnered exclusively in the UK with LVL Technologies to offer you a range of reliable 2D Bar-Coded Tubes in volumes from 200µl up to 4,000µl and associated accessories.  The tubes are suitable for low temperature storage down to -196°C and are ideal for most laboratory testing and subsequent long-term storage requirements. 

By storing information both horizontally and vertically, 2D Barcodes have significant advantages over horizontal 1D barcodes, both in terms of much greater data stored within the barcode and also the speed at which the barcode can be read. Both can be a significant advantage within a laboratory environment and so 2D Barcoded Tubes are most certainly the way forward with high throughput screening. 

Here, we offer a small number of standard items which you can buy on-line. (UK only).  The total offering runs to many hundreds of tube sizes, cap options, rack and cap colours, barcoding locations, sterility, rack material etc. Whatever options suit the needs of your project or business.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements further either via our online Enquiry Form (as 'sample request'), email on: [email protected] or feel free to call us on 01256811118.
