microwell plate2Pre-Printed vs. Blank

When you order from Computype you have a couple of options when it comes to how you receive your labels. We can supply your facility with either pre-printed labels or blank label kits, find out which strategy is best for your facility:

Blank Labels

A facility that is purchasing blank labels most likely requires their labels to be printed in-house to accommodate variable information that isn’t known ahead of time. They might also have the desire and workforce required to maintain full control of their labeling strategy by keeping it in-house.

Pre-Printed Labels

If your facility knows the information you’ll need printed ahead of time we can supply your labels pre-printed. As a label manufacturer we have access to label printing tools that just aren’t practical to implement in the lab, so we can accommodate a number of customizations including color, specialized materials and pre-barcoded plates!

What Comes in a Microwell Label Kit?

If you decide to purchase your labels blank, they will arrive packaged in kits for ease of use. So what exactly is included in a kit?:

  • Your blank labels
  • Thermal transfer ribbon, matched to your labels for optimal performance
  • A cleaning wipe

Each kit varies in the amount of label rolls and labels included based on your needs and application, so be sure to ask your sales rep for more details. The number of ribbon rolls will also vary, but there will always be enough to accommodate printing of all of your labels.

Why the Cleaning Wipe?

We include a cleaning wipe in all of our labeling kits so you have the supplies to keep your thermal transfer printer running smoothly for as long as possible. Performing regular cleaning and maintenance is a must for optimal printer performance and long-term wellness.

How much Do Microwell Plate Labels Cost?

The cost of microwell plate labels varies substantially depending on several factors, namely volume, size, method and customizations.


Simply put, as the volume of labels you order grows, so does the cost of your order. However, we do offer discounts on larger orders.


As the size of your labels increases so will their cost. Larger labels require more materials therefore increasing costs.


Whether you order your labels pre-printed, blank, or choose to receive already-barcoded plates via an outsourcing program will affect costs.

Pre-printed labels take printing out of your facility entirely and allow for the inclusion of specialized print technologies, color options and coatings.

Our blank labels come in kits with everything you need to print included (except for the printer…but we can help with that too!). Your kit includes thermal transfer ribbon that’s specially matched to perform optimally with your labels.

When you choose to order pre-applied barcodes through READY Labware Services you completely eliminate the labeling process from your lab while also gaining access to durable print technologies you can’t implement in your own lab.


Any customizations or accommodations will affect the cost of your order as additional time, care and potentially specialized materials may be required to fulfill your request.
