Lab-TAG™ Cryo Color Dots are ideal for sticking on textured caps due to their specially designed adhesive for cold and rough surfaces. More precisely, they are ideal for labeling tops and caps, plastic bags and racks, freezer boxes and other containers. Cryo Color Rectangles stickers, on the other hand, can be used for labeling the sides of the tubes and vials, as well as other containers.
How They Work
Dots are available with diameter between 0.25” to 1”. The smallest circle label (0.25” diameter) can be used for identification of PCR tube tops. Larger sizes of circle (0.44” or 0.5” diameter) can be used for labeling microtube tops and cryogenic vial caps. Finally, the 0.75” and 1” diameter dots are ideal for 15ml and 50 ml Falcon tubes.
Dots and Rectangles are supplied in small sheet format (4” x 6” Hagaki sheet size) and in roll format. They are available in 15 colors and in packs of assorted colors. They can be written on using permanent markers such as our cryomarkers. Using special software, PCR tube cap labels can also be printed. Multicolor round labels containing up to 7 colors on the same sheet or roll are in stock.
Round cryogenic labels are also available for barcode printers.
