What makes the cab SQUIX a great fit for the lab?

Though the SQUIX is an incredibly versatile printer, there are four main features that make the SQUIX a great match for laboratory environments specifically, including:

Accommodates small scale labels

As miniaturisation continues to trend in the healthcare industry, sample sizes grow smaller and smaller, and so do their labels. The SQUIX is able to accommodate labels as small as 4mm by 4mm, and barcodes remain readable with image resolution options as high as 600 dpi.

Durable print technology

Thermal transfer print technology is recognised for its durability. Paired with the right label stock, your samples should be able to retain their identity through a variety of exposures and environmental conditions.

Quiet in operation

A quiet environment is ideal for detail oriented and focused work like research and diagnostics. A loud printer running constantly in the background, or several of them, can be irritating and distracting. cab printers are recognised for their quiet operation, making them especially suitable for laboratory environments.

An array of applicable optional features

So many optional features are available with the cab SQUIX and many of them are extremely valuable to laboratory applications.

Cutting, dispensing, peeling and automatic application options can improve efficiencies in your workflows, whether you’re labelling tubes, vials, plates or anything else.

RFID and scan verification can also be utilised with the SQUIX to further increase efficiency and accuracy.


How much does the cab SQUIX Series cost?

Cost is always a major consideration when making an investment in equipment such as a barcode label printer. However, cab takes pride in offering this multi-functional printer at an affordable cost. The starting price for this printer is around $2,100, but that price will increase depending on the model you choose, your DPI preference and any added features.


Though most of the features remain the same between the three models in their simplest form, the three of them vary in size, media width compatibility and justification. Each option offers value to their most suitable lab, whether you’re looking for a compact solution, or something with a wider range of acceptable media options.


Though higher image resolution is preferred in many situations, it isn’t always necessary. In most situations 300 dpi is suitable, however, some extremely small applications will find a lot of value in 600 dpi printing capabilities. Due to the technology required and more limited application, 600 dpi printers tend to cost more.

Additional features

Any time you add an optional feature the price will increase. Not only do additional features require additional parts, but sometimes technological adjustments need to be made to fully accommodate the change. This is why it’s always important to ensure your facility will receive value from any feature you choose to incorporate.
