Briefs: cryogenic labels

In order to identify specimens for forensic investigations, medical research or blood, plasma and semen donations, reliable identification is vital. Labels used for deep-frozen material need to be durable and legible and must remain where they are adhered. LG International has developed resistant cryogenic labels. They are tear-resistant that are not weakened by moisture or extreme cold. They are top-coated and used with thermal transfer printers. Identification is customized: barcodes and serial numbers can be used. LGI's cryogenic adhesive, when applied to a wide range of clean surfaces such as plastic, poly, metal or glass at room temperature, will withstand extreme cold temperatures to -80°C. The labels are suitable for clinical specimens, pharmaceutical suspensions and other perishable items.
