Don?t Fade Away - Durable Scientific Labelling

Oct 30 2007

Laboratory and biological samples often have to be stored for very long periods, for legal reasons, for archiving, for GLP compliance or simply to preserve them for future use. Brady Corporation's guaranteed labelling technology protects against the potential disaster of being unable to identify a sample after protracted storage.

Hand written labels are particularly prone to smearing when handled and to fading after long term storage. Accidental contact with chemicals and solvents can simply wash away vital information. Even with printed labels, unsuitable combinations of label material and ink can make labelling equally vulnerable, with the added problem that bar codes become unreadable with loss or corruption of data. The problem is, of course, that these problems may only become apparent when it's too late!
Choosing the right combination of material and ink is obviously vital to label durability, and the huge Brady product range offers an unrivalled 72 different combinations to suit any situation, with expert technical advice to make the right choice. The Brady B461 range of self-laminating labels display exceptional durability under liquid nitrogen conditions. These labels combine a white label area with a clear overlaminating area that not only protects the legend but allows visibility of the sample itself and are available to suit all standard laboratory consumables vials, tubes and slides.
