2D barcoded cryotubes from Ziath

Cryogenic storage vials enable researchers to retain several organic specimens at ultra-cool temperatures and are central to biological sample management. Scientists around the world have been utilizing high-performance cryotubes for decades.

They have been vital in enabling the huge capacity for storing irreplaceable samples that all biobanks enjoy today. Although they represent extreme value, from an information management perspective, the ability to store hundreds, thousands or even millions of biological specimens represent a challenge.

For small, medium and large-scale enterprises alike, 2D barcoded cryotubes are vital accessories. 2D barcoded cryotubes enable easy acquisition and identification of biological assets in the lab. They have a unique two-dimensional data matrix barcode inserted into the base of each vial.

For use in the storage of biological samples at temperatures at minus 80 degrees and liquid nitrogen, Ziath has designed a range of reliable 2D barcoded cryotubes. Regardless of the scale of an operation, Ziath’s 2D barcoded cryotubes are engineered to make any sample management workflow more reliable, intuitive and scalable.

2D barcoded cryotubes: Key features

Ziath’s line of CryzoTraq™ 2D barcoded cryotubes is manufactured in a Class 7 cleanroom using medical-grade PP (polypropylene).  Each batch is beta radiation sterilized by an electron beam, eliminating potential biological contaminants from the product preparation workflow, ensuring that their 2D barcoded cryotubes are free from RNase, DNase and other unwanted substances.


Ziath’s 2D barcoded cryotubes are guaranteed leak-free and feature a proprietary 2-stage injection molded cap that eschews traditional sealing solutions (i.e., O-rings).

Under storage conditions, and even in liquid nitrogen storage systems, this advanced sealing solution prevents contamination/loss of samples simultaneously. CryzoTraq™ storage vials are supplied with both internal and external threaded caps, ensuring compatibility with the users’ systems.

Automatic barcoding

Ziath’s tubes have a linear barcode on the side of the tube and an identical 2D barcode on the tube’s base, with one generated from the other. This ensures optimal sample management at all times and eliminates errors associated with incorrect labeling.
