Through its Bel-Art product line, US-based business SP Scienceware® has released a new range of cryogenic storage labels for use in extremely cold laboratory storage conditions.
Featuring a strong, permanent adhesive, the labels will withstand cryogenic storage temperatures and maintain adhesion when submerged in liquid nitrogen (N2).
As such, the labels will not fall off in extreme conditions, eliminating the risk of sample mix-ups and content confusion.
Ed Murphy, Product Manager for SP Scienceware, explained, “These cryogenic labels are ideal for use in -80°C to -196°C environments, for either short or long-term storage.”
The labels, which can also be used on glass, plastic and cardboard, are blank and customised to the needs of each individual lab.
The Globally Harmonised System of Classification and labelling of Chemicals (GHS) is certainly the most significant and comprehensive change in labelling requirements to affect both the cryogenic and compressed gas industry in recent memory.
Josh Roffman of Loftware examines five trends in Enterprise Labeling which outline significant issues in labeling today and are all based on input from leading global companies who participated in an ‘Enterprise Labeling Trends Survey.’
