Fully automated label printing in a laboratory

Sep 01 2020

Challenge: The oncology lab in a local hospital creates separate records in their LIMS when samples are spliced. Each sample needs a dedicated label that includes sample creation date, a unique LIMS ID and a parent ID for traceability purposes.

The laboratory recognised they could save valuable time by automating label creation for these samples.

Label template

The preferred label template includes 2 QR-codes, one with the sample’s unique(Child – C) ID on the left, and another one with its parent ID (P) on the right. It also includes the sample creation date in the center.

All this information can be fitted on a standard 38.10 x 6.35 mm label.

CSV-data dump set up

The laboratory has a LIMS that can dump data to CSV-files. Within their existing business process, a sub process or hook was created after splicing samples.

Next to the required information for the labels, the LIMS also dumps additional data that could be added to a new label template planned for the future.

Label vial tubes in a few seconds

Automate vial tube identification to increase the output of your laboratory. When linked to our BradyPrinter i7100, the Vial Label Applicator prints and applies labels on vial tubes in a few seconds and enables scientists to spend more time on core responsibilities.

increase laboratory output: print and apply labels in a few seconds on capped and uncapped tubes with a diameter between 10 and 17 mm and length from 38 up to 105 mm. Labelled tubes can be removed manually or ejected automatically into a tray. Trigger printing with a foot pedal, sensor or programmable controller.

reliable sample labels: our specialised laboratory labels will stay attached and intact throughout sample processing and storage. Labels will not smear nor smudge when exposed to typical laboratory chemicals when printed with Brady's researched inks.

easily design your labels: quickly design sample container label templates with Brady Workstation Lab Suite apps. Import data from Excel, create barcodes and add human readables in a few clicks.
