Specimen Identification

For scientists engaged in clinical trials for biotech and pharmaceutical companies, as well as law enforcement professionals utilizing PCR-based DNA assays, accurate and efficient specimen identification is crucial. The TubeWriter 400 offers a comprehensive solution for these specialized labeling needs, catering to both sectors’ stringent requirements for specimen identification.

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

In clinical laboratories, the TubeWriter 400 efficiently handles the high-volume processing of patient samples. It adeptly labels clinical tubes of various materials, including glass and plastic, such as BD Vacutainers or MonoJet counterparts. The TubeWriter 400’s versatility allows it to print patient names, dates, and scannable 1D barcodes for unambiguous specimen identification. This eliminates the need for manual, error-prone peel-and-stick vial labels.

Any Tube, Any Labware, Any Size for Specimen Identification

The TubeWriter™ 400 prints on anything that will fit under the inkjet printhead. For example, the side or top of any tube, histology cassette, microscope slide, cryovial, and more. So you’ll never go back to messy handwriting or sticky lab labels again.

Barcode Printing = Positive ID

Barcode standards such as Data Matrix, Linear, 2D, Code 128, Code 39 are all possible using the TubeWriter 400 tube labeling system. This enhanced capability allows you to integrate your barcode scanners to read tubes and record data into your systems for accurate automated specimen identification. Rather than worrying about reading text, take your samples and start scanning them.
