The firm said the labels have been engineered to stay attached to samples even when frozen with liquid nitrogen or heated in an autoclave.
Ink used to print them can resist chemicals used in labs to ensure legibility and avoid sample loss.
Tugba Sert, EMEA product manager at Brady, said labels can fall off or become unreadable after processing, stick to gloves instead of the sample, or the handwriting on them is illegible.
“When they can no longer be identified, samples become unusable for further scientific research. The average cost of losing one sample can reach €550 in a clinical lab setting.
“With all of the above arguments in mind, Brady scientists and engineers successfully set out to discover new label constructions, inks and adhesives to ensure sample traceability for life.”
Sert added that the labels can be applied to identify vials, tubes, slides, straws and tissue cassettes.
