Are your labels lab-tested to endure specimen protocol?

Label performance improves lab accuracy.

Improve your lab accuracy by printing barcoded thermal transfer microscope slide labels, cryogenic labels, and vial-top labels which cling to your specimen containers through changing lab conditions for reliable traceability through the protocol process. Dasco supplies labels which are lab-tested to resist solvents, endure extreme temperatures, and autoclave conditions without smearing, fading, or falling off.

Microscope slide labels won’t smear, fade, discolor, buckle or fall off your specimens even when submerged in harsh solvent for several minutes. Your barcodes will retain legibility and scanability every time. Reliable barcode slide labeling allows you to maintain the traceability of your specimens and preserve their identity for as long as needed.

Dasco also supplies Brady cryogenic labels which stick to frosted and frozen surfaces. Brady FreezerBondz labels endure liquid nitrogen, autoclave, freezer, and hot water bath applications without smearing, fading or falling off of your cryovials.

Count on high-performance barcode lab labels to last through changing lab conditions, chain of custody transfers, and tracking. Labels are sized to fit your microscope slides, cryovials and centrifuge vials and adhere securely for decades during long-term storage.

Improve your lab accuracy with a Dasco on-demand label printing system.

Accuracy is critical for the hospital lab in tracking specimens to ensure that they are associated with the right patient. Why trust your lab specimens to labels that smear or fade during the protocol process or fall off through chain of custody transfers or during long-term storage? Labels that smear or fade are hard to read and scan which lead to errors, and labels that fall off specimens need to be relabeled. Or worse, you’ll need to redraw specimens and start the protocol process over again—that costs time and money, while anxious patients wait longer for lab results. Legible and long-lasting specimen identification is essential to ensure data integrity for your hospital lab. For the nursing staff, it frees up their time to spend doing what they love most—caring for their patients!

A well-designed on-demand specimen identification system reduces errors and improves patient safety. By integrating barcode label software, a portable thermal label printer, a barcode scanner, high-performance labels and printer ribbon, you'll eliminate misread handwriting, miskeyed data, and labels that smear, fade and fall off through protocol and chain of custody transfers. High performance labels matched with the right printer ribbon will ensure that your data will remain legible and scanable every time, and your labels will adhere to your specimens through changing lab conditions and long-term storage without falling off.

Dasco offers you the latest innovations for lab identification and tracking, as well as best practices for labeling, lab efficiency, and compliance. Choose from a wide range of barcode scanners and data collection solutions, label design software, printable label stock and ribbons, and a selection of industrial thermal transfer barcode label printers to portable Brady BMP21-LAB label makers as affordable as $99.

Call Dasco toll-free at 1-877-855-2235, and we will get your specimen identification system online in less time and for less cost.
