Custom laboratory identification solutions for tubes and vials.

Robust, durable labeling solutions to preserve sample integrity

Our solutions are designed with purpose in mind—when it comes to life sciences that means ensuring lasting integrity through your processes. Our labels & prepared labware are engineered & validated to remain scannable, legible & intact, even in extreme environments

Temperature

Long-term cryo storage down to -196°C, freezer storage, and autoclave heat.

Solvents

Resist most solvents including DMSO, isopropyl alcohol, xylene & more.

Wear & Tear

Permanent barcodes and self-laminating labels to protect your data.

We help laboratories across the globe develop the most efficient, accurate, and reliable strategy for labeling tubes in their unique and harsh environments. Our label pros are continually gaining new experiences in laboratories and we understand the unique struggles lab technicians face trying to keep up with labeling. Our deep expertise in barcoding for the broad range of assets used in scientific applications means we can recommend the right solution for your application.

Advanced marking technologies for pre-identified labware
  • Make efficient use of your tube by adding multiple codes to a single container
  • Don’t forget about the caps and bottoms, add a 2d code or a color patch
  • Strategically balance human-readable identifiers with encoded data
  • Implement or support an RFID strategy with hybrid labels
  • Eliminate frustrations from adhesives by opting for permanent barcodes

Specially engineered labels and advanced marking technologies

We offer a wide range of solutions for tubes and vials to meet every need. Our range of solutions makes it easy to specify the proper identification method based on budget, container type, and the demands of your specific laboratory procedures. Our advanced marking technologies provide greater durability and imaging opportunities. These technologies include:  

Adhesive Labels
Ceramic Bonding
Laser Etching
Cured Ink Direct Mark

Vision-based inspection system for sequence management

Every barcode on every tube or vial will arrive at your facility having already been successfully scanned and accurately decoded thanks to our state-of-the-art vision-based inspection system.

This advanced feature in our production process scans and decodes every barcode symbol on every label set and automatically compares the decoded message to your job’s master data file.

The scan and decode process happens multiple times in succession (at production speeds of around 75 feet per minute), allowing us to verify that:

 

  • Each decoded number is within the range of numbers requested and is not duplicated
  • All symbols are in the correct position on the web
  • The symbols are scannable and decoded accurately
  • There is no gap in the sequence

Strategic solutions for laboratories

Labware Prep™ Services

Receive your specified tubes and vials pre-identified with accurate, durable, sequential barcodes already applied. Sourcing pre-barcoded labware can save your laboratory both time and cost while allowing you to focus more on value-added research activities.

Ensure the best allocation of your skilled staff.

When they can be focused on research & meeting strategic goals, as opposed to applying barcode labels to tubes & vials.

Reduces waste, costs, errors & unknowns.

Through improved consistency & dictating specifics related to your overall identification management strategy.

Tube Labelers

Keep labeling controls in-house whilst still improving efficiencies, placement accuracy, and overall accuracy with tube label application automation systems. Depending on volume, ROI can be met extremely fast, and errors related to identification are virtually eliminated.

Increases downstream automated scanning accuracy.

As a result of precisely & consistently placed barcode labels every. single. time.

Keeps controls in house.

While still achieving increased output, a higher degree of consistency, and reduced administrative effort/error.

RFID Hybrid Labels

With RFID-enhanced labels, you can quickly and wirelessly locate and identify your samples and specimens, secure & capture sensitive data, scan for authenticity, confirm authorized suppliers, and ensure proper use of every container.

Enhanced security.

And gain tighter control when you can locate and manage assets in real-time, without line of sight visibility.

Open more possibilities.

Track, manage and locate items, using real-time data from a centralized source to support analytic decision-making and promote growth.

Laboratory Resource Management

Tracking high-value samples across multiple systems and locations can be a challenge in any laboratory. Without proper infrastructures in place this can lead to higher costs and lower visibility. Computype’s Digital Traceability Platform helps track critical assets digitally and physically – monitoring storage, usage, and more.
