Researchers at Vertex faced challenges in identifying a labeling solution capable of withstanding the diverse conditions to which lab samples are exposed. Sticker labels proved inadequate, failing to endure as samples changed hands, underwent freezing, boiling, and came into contact with boxes and racks. Moreover, the additional weight of the stickers on the tubes necessitated adjustments during testing. Despite experimenting with various manual labeling methods, including handwriting and different types of stickers, the researchers characterized their experiences as “awful.”
The TubeWriter is engineered to create durable labels that can withstand the demanding conditions found in laboratories. Researchers, across various institutions, frequently expose samples to extreme temperatures and specific chemicals, such as alcohol. The TubeWriter provides assurance that labels will endure these conditions reliably. Notably, TubeWriter labels don’t add significant weight to samples, allowing researchers to weigh them at any point in an experiment without including the label weight in calculations.
“Before, when we were handwriting or stickering the tubes, it would take four hours to do 1,000 tubes. Now it takes three minutes.”
“The time value alone is innumerable on hours saved.”
