Laboratory labels

Laboratory labels play an essential part in all types of research sample identification processes used in many different laboratory environments. Our laboratory labeling solutions are designed to last in harsh environments and for safeguarding valuable data they are perfect for applications used in laboratory research that involves biotechnology, research and development, government clinical trials/protection agencies and animal health.

Autoclave and sterilisation resistant labels

As a leading laboratory self-adhesive label manufacturer, we provide the following:

What are laboratory labels?

Laboratory labels have exceptional label durability that can withstand cold, ultra-low and cryogenic storage from -196°C to the extreme temperatures of steam sterilisation of +130°C.
