The Generation R Study
The Generation R Study is a prospective cohort study from fetal life until young adulthood in a multi-ethnic urban population. Several research groups from the Erasmus Medical Center conduct the Generation R Study in close collaboration with the Erasmus University Rotterdam and the Municipal Health Service Rotterdam (the Netherlands). This study is a great example of how Micronic products are used in laboratories around the world preserving the integrity of samples for many years.
The Generation R Study utilizes tens of thousands of Micronic tubes and caps during its ongoing research for the last 15 years. Since the data collection is still in process and growing, the number of collaborating research groups in and outside the Netherlands is expected to increase in the coming years. Micronic is proud to be part of this successful and extremely important project by supplying reliable sample storage labware to preserve the integrity of valuable samples.
