On Demand Print Flexibility in the Laboratory
Jan 15 2021 Read 232 Times
Replace handwritten data on sample tubes with durable polyester labels suitable for ‘in-lab’ printing via a standard desktop laser printer or dedicated thermal transfer printer.
Handwriting directly onto tubes or labels may be convenient but in the long run it can be unreliable, prone to smudging and difficult to read, thus being ineffective and inefficient. Adding data via the ‘print-in-lab’ process will allow you to achieve enhanced readability and the option of also introducing barcodes or 2D codes onto your labels for quick scanning options.
Printing via the ‘print-in-lab’ process will also enable you to print direct from excel or via your LIMS (Laboratory information Management system) maintaining data formatting and eliminating human input error. This is particularly important to retain measured quality procedures for good laboratory practice (GLP), external accreditation and auditing purposes, whilst maintaining sample integrity.
In house printed labels also enable you to establish and control an agreed format for all samples ensuring each sample is identified using the same process (label) and chosen typeface, so they are easily recognisable and can be used during the whole laboratory sample life. This is particularly useful when large volume batches are being processed.
Label materials are available in both roll and sheet format and feature a permanent acrylic adhesive suitable for use in extreme temperatures (rating -196ºC to +155ºC) so very versatile for lab storage. Excellent for identifying sample vials, collection tubes and associated plasticware/glassware used in the laboratory that requires storage within the freezer or fridge.
