Why use printed laboratory labels?

Printed Brady labels can be easily read by people or scanners, every time.  Adding barcodes allow you to include more label information on samples to drastically reduce human error.

Why Printed labels
Hand-written vs printed labels


Did you ever had to postpone research because of unidentified samples, or because nobody was able to read anymore what was once written on the sample you need? Printed laboratory labels, engineered specifically to identify samples, help avoid sample loss and a lot of frustration.
