With Brady Corporation's latest laboratory sample label, up to eight PCR tubes can be labelled simultaneously.
Designed to resist a range of chemicals, and easily printable in any lab with a Brady label printer, the new B-492 PCR tube label is designed to be precise, reliable and efficient.
Instead of labelling every PCR tube separately, the B-492 contains eight smaller, perforated labels in a single label strip. The self-adhesive strip can be applied on PCR tube labels in a rack and easily torn after application into separate PCR tube labels.
Made out of polyester, the label will resist common lab chemicals, including DMSO, Xylene and Ethanol, as well as low and high temperatures. Its adhesive is designed to stick to curved PCR tubes so the label doesn't fall off, even when stored in liquid nitrogen. When printed with a Brady label printer, the ink on the label will not smear or fade and will remain legible throughout processing to enable reliable sample traceability.
The PCR tube label can be edited with Brady Workstation apps to include a barcode, symbol, serial number or other identification. The Basic App Suite is free of charge, whilst more advanced apps offer the ability to link label printing with the lab's LIMS-system and come with a 30-day free trial. Once the PCR tube label is designed, simply hit print to send it to a Brady label printer and apply the label on 8 PCR tubes at once.
