Automate Laboratory Sample Identification

Oct 21 2016 Comments 0

Your current methods to identify and track samples may have become inefficient and too time consuming, as they were never designed to deal with such volumes. By automating sample identification, laboratories that face large volumes of samples can free up a lot of time to reinvest in research.

 

To automate sample identification, dedicated sample label creation software needs to be integrated with the Laboratory Information Management System. This will enable lab professionals to easily transfer specific sample information already present in the LIMS, to a tiny sample label. Once set up, a few clicks should suffice to print the necessary identification labels when the samples arrive in the lab.

 

Professional sample identification labels can be printed on-site in any laboratory using a small, industrial strength thermal transfer printer from Brady. Simply plug the printer into a computer connected to LIMS and automate the printing process using Brady software. Specialised printers, such as the BBP™12 Label Printer, use researched inks that resist the chemicals used in staining processes for example, as well as the icy cold liquid nitrogen temperatures used in sample storage. This means a sample label applied at intake, could keep the sample identified throughout storage and processing.

 

Quality sample labels employ constructed materials and durable adhesives that perform well in the laboratory environment. Where other labels fail, dedicated sample labels are developed to keep their integrity and to stay attached when exposed to laboratory chemicals or extreme temperatures. That is why dedicated sample labels are as important as specialised inks or a LIMS-integrated label creation software to set up a fast, automated and qualitative sample identification process.
