8100T CryoCool Label

Extreme low temperature label

Laboratory labels for cryogenic applications that fail to scan can affect the efficiency and productivity of laboratories. Replacing failed labels and reprocessing lab samples wastes time and money, reduces laboratory workers’ efficiency and can cause delays to patient care or treatment. In cryogenic storage, it can be tough to find the right label for vials and test tubes that fit well and stay adhered. The 8100T CryoCool is specially designed to withstand harsh cryogenic conditions. Its permanent adhesive provides outstanding adhesion to small-diameter vials and tubes, making it the perfect choice for a variety of lab applications. Maintaining adhesion down to -196°C, the 8100T CryoCool is suitable for liquid nitrogen applications and can withstand dry ice and gamma radiation.
