8000D UltraCool

Direct Thermal Label Can Withstand Temperatures Down to -80°C

The reliable identification of micro-organisms, serum, biological components and lab samples in ultra-low temperature freezer environments is vital to ensuring accurate medical research and efficient laboratory processing. Only select labels can withstand ultra-low temperature environments. If the label becomes unreadable or missing, it can impact the success of a clinical trial, or lead to specimen and sample wastage and the need to re-collect and test samples – potentially delaying patient diagnosis and treatment. Zebra’s 8000D UltraCool is a direct thermal material that does not require the use of a ribbon to create an image, designed to meet this challenging environment. It features a specialty low temperature adhesive for -80°C ultra-low temperature storage, ensuring critical assets remain identifiable until used, tested, or disposed of.

8000D UltraCool Direct Thermal Label

Designed to maintain adhesion

The 8000D UltraCool label has been designed to maintain adhesion when exposed to temperatures down to -80°C , so the labeled items that require ultra-low temperature storage remain identifiable to staff. It is vital that labels remain in place to avoid costly duplication of specimen and sample processing and potential errors.

Reliable readability

When the label is applied to containers that are stored in an ultra-low temperature freezer, the print will remain legible, ensuring visibility of the specimen identity over extended periods of time and for repeated inspections.

Enable mobile printing with direct thermal material

Zebra’s 8000D UltraCool label is a direct thermal material that does not require the use of a ribbon to create a durable image, enabling staff to easily implement mobile and bedside printing to work more efficiently. Staff can easily print labels at the point of care to minimize errors, enhance patient safety and allowing staff to effectively identify, track and manage samples. Printing is quick and easy, requiring only one supplies item as staff do not need to install a ribbon to print a durable image.

Print Confident, Print Quality with Zebra Certified Supplies

Printing supplies can impact everything from printhead lifespan to operational efficiency. That’s why we design, produce and rigorously pre-test our own line of thermal printing supplies to ensure consistent, optimized performance. We utilize an ISO 9001 certified, 23-point quality inspection to ensure consistent quality. No matter when you order your labels, you can count on the same great performance.

Reliably identify micro-organisms, serum, biological components and lab samples in ultra-low temperature environments with the 8000D UltraCool label.
