Specialist Labels Suitable for COVID-19 Specimens

Mar 24 2020 Read 930 Times

Computer Imprintable Label Systems (CILS) works with disease control centres and major government public health agencies across the UK, Europe and the USA providing rapid response labels to meet the demand for coronavirus specimen testing.
The World Health Organisation specifies certain COVID-19 specimens must be stored at 2-8°C for up to 72 hours after collection. If a delay in testing or shipping is expected, specimens must be stored at -70°C on dry ice.
The range of CILS cold temperature, thermal transfer printable labware labels are ideal as they resist extreme temperatures as low -196°C and up to +155°C.
CILS supply self-laminating labels for added durability, and cap and tube labels for barcode scanning that are printable as small as 5mm x 5mm. These labels resist laboratory solvents such as xylene, dimethyl sulfoxide and isopropyl alcohol, as well as sterilisation and autoclave cycles, water baths and centrifuge processes.
