Who are the Best Cryogenic Label Suppliers of 2021?


At Computype, we work with labs and biobanks all over the world to ensure they have proper barcoding strategies in place to support the unique cryogenic storage processes and facilities. With that being said we acknowledge the depth of the decision to select a supplier, especially when you are trusted with processing valuable samples and specimens.

As a trusted cryo and freezer label supplier, we are often asked by customers "who else supplies cryogenic barcode labels?"

While we have a good reputation amongst research, diagnostic, and biobank organizations for our reliable cryo and freezer labels, by no means do we discredit our competition.

With extensive knowledge in this space and full awareness of our competitors, we wanted to provide you with a compiled list of who we consider to be the best cryo label suppliers in North America and Europe.



1. Brady Corporation

HQ: Milwaukee, WI, USA
Founded: 1914

Brady Corporation’s cryo and freezer labels are recognized for their ability to resist smearing, fading, or falling off in extreme cold environments such as liquid nitrogen, freezers, and autoclaves, as well as other harsh environments such as hot water baths, chemicals and solvents. Additionally, Brady’s laboratory labels are carefully designed to fit to a variety of vial, slide, and well plate sizes.

2. Diversified Biotech

HQ: Dedham, MA, USA
Founded: 1984

Diversified biotech’s cryo and freezer labels are manufactured with the intent to easily integrate with a variety of direct thermal printers. Their tags allow for quick labeling of all samples with sharp text and clear barcodes, custom to your intended use.

3. Ga International Labtag

HQ: Laval, Quebec, Canada
Founded: 1999

Ga International supplies a wide variety of cryo and freezer labels that are aimed to address both common and unique challenges that your lab may present. Additionally, consulting and technical support is offered to ensure ease of use and integration for your company.

4. General Data Company

HQ: Cincinnati, OH, USA

5. CILS International

HQ: West Sussex, UK
Founded: 1987

CILS International manufactures durable, computer printable labels that can withstand all environments. With quick lead times, and solutions made to match your requirements, they can ensure you a quick and reliable solution. 


If you are exploring cryo labeling options for your lab, these are 5 qualified companies to keep in mind. In addition to sourcing your labware you should consider your labeling strategy.

Upgrading to a new printer (check out the SQUIX), automated system (the Axon2 can auto-apply your cryo labels to tubes for less than $10k) or even giving pre-barcoded labware a try (check out our list of 10 reasons to consider outsourcing) can significantly improve your processes.

Finding a supplier who can offer both labels and labeling equipment is a great way to ensure a comprehensive solution compatible with your labels and your needs.

Now that you have some basic information about the best cryo label suppliers nationwide, we hope you feel more comfortable moving forward in your decision making process.
