Innovative manufacturing

Our tubes are manufactured by a highly specialised and automated process, known as dual injection.

This process creates a powerful molecular bond between the clear tube and the black base. The result is the single piece AlteTube.

Permanent 2D barcode

The 2D DataMatrix barcode is laser etched on the black disc in the base of the tube. Every barcode meets our exacting standards for readability.

The durable 2D barcodes are designed to survive in the harshest of lab environments.

External thread screw caps

Polypropylene caps with a specially designed moulded internal lip, ensuring a leak proof seal.

Code recovery

The AlteTube 2D DataMatrix barcodes adhere to the ECC200 standard. Reed-Solomon error correction codes in the DataMatrix barcode reconstructs and verifies data for improved accuracy.

Clever cap design

Works to provide a deforming compression seal from a thread which secures very quickly and is fully engaged after a maximum rotation of 180°. The benefit is seen within an automated workflow and storage.
