NitroTAG™ cryogenic labels come in a roll format for printing with thermal-transfer (barcode) printers. The plastic waterproof labels are specifically designed to permanently adhere to vials, microcentrifuge tubes, microtubes, microplates, glass tubes, freezer boxes, plastic bags and other specimen containers that will undergo long-term deep-freeze storage. These lab labels have an extremely high affinity for glass, polypropylene, polyethylene and other plastic surfaces.
These thermal-transfer cryogenic labels are ideal for long term storage and biopreservation in:
- Liquid phase and vapor phase liquid nitrogen (-320.8°F / -196°C)
- Dry ice
- Cryogenic freezers
NitroTAG™ labels are constructed from a thin thermoplastic film and an extra-strong cryogenic adhesive. The cryogenic labels withstand temperatures up to 212°F / 100°C and will remain adhered to tubes through multiple freeze-thaw cycles without cracking or peeling off. The thin and sleek face of the cryogenic labels ensure the proper storage of tubes and vials in most storage systems without any hindrance or risk of being scraped off. The NitroTAG™ cryogenic labels do not require a self-laminate to work.
- NitroTAG™ labels can be printed with all major brands of thermal-transfer printers or marked on with permanent markers such as our Cryomarkers™
- For the most durable ink or alcohol resistant print, it is recommended to print the labels using alcohol-proof resin ribbons
