Laboratory labels

What are laboratory labels?

Laboratory labels help scientists, and medical professionals track and trace laboratory samples through the harsh conditions that labels have to perform under in a laboratory environment, allowing for effective communication throughout the medical lab or facility.

Typical Laboratory Label Uses

Laboratory labels have many different uses for medical and research laboratories and need to be durable enough to withstand harsh environments. The lab labels can be used on flasks, seals and cryogenic tubes. Laboratory labels help improve the management of dated inventory, central supply bins and are also used for cryogenic applications that require long-term cold storage and to identify specimens. 

Label with confidence and avoid risk.

A damaged or detached label could mean that a clinical trial has to be ended, with the need for new samples to be taken. This could have a huge impact on patients' lives, as well as incurring costs associated with the safe disposal of specimens and the waste of laboratory time and resources. The right durable labels can help to minimize such risks.

Unlike normal labels, those used in a lab often have to withstand extremes conditions, from the freezing cold of liquid nitrogen cryotubes to the high heat and pressure of steam sterilization in autoclaves.
