Lab Sample Labeling Automation

Labeling samples in a laboratory can be a challenging task.  At TubeWriter we offer a great solution to this problem and more.

The Client and the Challenge

The Oncology Research department at Pfizer generates 80% of its samples internally. This results in thousands of samples that need to be labeled. Before the TubeWriter, scientists were labeling samples by hand, but the handwriting was often too messy to read, and important information couldn’t fit on the label. Scientists were resorting to using shorthand and symbols to try to identify samples but keeping the information in multiple places was unsustainable as notebooks got lost and symbols were not universally understood. Even though the labeling process took scientists hours each day, the labels were ultimately ineffective, and interpreting them slowed down lab work.

How TubeWriter Helped

The TubeWriter has a throughput speed of over 1500 tubes per hour, allowing a lab to print a week’s worth of samples in just one hour. These labels eliminate the need for shorthand or symbology by using a small, legible font that can fit all the information needed onto the tube. Now, scientists at Pfizer plan entire experiments around when they will have access to the TubeWriter as clear labels have become an invaluable element in their research.
