Sample Identification

In the high-stakes world of clinical trials for biotech and pharmaceutical companies, reliable sample ID is paramount. Ensuring the integrity and quality of samples is crucial, particularly when dealing with PCR-based assays, next-gen sequencing, and handling of cell lines, tissues, blood, and library samples. The TubeWriter 400 is as an essential tool in this context. It’s specifically designed to meet the stringent demands of researchers and regulatory lab technicians for dependable, readable labels.


What if you never had to "interpret" an illegible label again?

Imagine a world where the cumbersome process of manually sticking labels on sample collection tubes and microplates is obsolete. The TubeWriter 400 makes this a reality. Trusted by top-tier pharmaceutical companies for its proficiency in vial and tube labeling for critical sample identification. The TubeWriter 400 streamlines the labeling process, completing sample tube and microplate printing 80% faster than traditional methods. It is capable of creating 2D data matrix and other barcodes for unequivocal specimen identification. What’s more, it integrates seamlessly with LIMS, Excel, or custom databases, eliminating the need for conventional lab labels for sample identification.

Label Samples Tubes and Microplates Faster

Whether working in a small research lab or a large-scale clinical study, the TubeWriter 400 addresses the challenge of efficiently labeling a high volume of tubes and microplates. It is versatile enough to print directly on various sample identification collection systems. For example: cryovials, matrix/micronic storage tubes, petri dishes, tissue culture flasks, and more. This efficiency in labeling simultaneously saves time and ensures positive specimen identification, enhancing the accuracy and reliability of clinical trials.

Extreme Durability Prevents Sample Identification Issues

The durability of the TubeWriter 400’s labeling is notable. It prints directly onto almost any tube or plate, using thermally stable ink that withstands exposure to liquid nitrogen and extreme temperatures commonly encountered in sample id lab storage. This industrial inkjet technology eliminates the concerns associated with adhesive labels, such as peeling off in cryogenic storage or during assay runs. Additionally, the lack of physical labels means automated handling racks for matrix/micronic tubes can be used without the risk of jams, further enhancing lab efficiency.
