On-Demand Barcoding

One unidentified vial, one missing tube, or one unaccounted-for sample can result in exponential costs to a scientific or research lab. So, many labs are turning to on-demand barcoding identification for their laboratory labels. 


What if you could create your own custom barcode for every sample?

Unfortunately, pre-barcoded life science labware products are expensive and inflexible. But with TubeWriter 400, you can add barcode labels to virtually any lab media on the fly. And it only costs about a penny per tube label.

Save on tube labeling while avoiding the prohibitive impact of lost sample vials.

Very few manufacturers sell tubes or vials with preprinted barcodes. As a result, manufacturers control the price you pay as well as the tubes you use: generally cluster or cryovial tubes. If you get locked into a multi-year agreement with a supplier of pre barcoded tubes, you’ll face significant costs. For example, switching over historical samples that have been stored in microcentrifuge, conical, screw caps and other labware to the manufacturer’s preferred barcoded tube.

Increase Tube Labeling Flexibility with TubeWriter™ 400 On-Demand Barcoding

Which would you rather use: A random, ten-digit bar code supplied by a tube manufacturer? Or your own unique identifier matching your requirements? With TubeWriter 400, you choose the letters and numbers, so you can print 1D (linear) barcodes as well as 2D barcodes.
