FTT - XyliTUFF™ Labels


XyliTUFF™ labels have been specifically designed for use in histology and cytology labs. Ideally suited for the long-term identification of microscope slides used for tissue histochemical staining, tissue cassettes routinely used in wax embedding and processing of biopsy samples, slide boxes and other containers. Use of our TC-class of xylene resistant ribbons provides a printout that is resistant to xylene, toluene, alcohols, hexane, acetone, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), acetonitrile (ACN) as well as other chemicals and solvents.

These chemical resistant histology labels are intended for use on flat surfaces. Their permanent chemical resistant adhesive ensures the labels retain their adhesion, even in the harshest environments. On microscope slides, these solvent-resistant labels and their printed information can withstand immersion in xylene for up to 15 hours and boiling water (100°C, 30 minutes). On smooth surface frontal cassettes, they withstand exposure and immersion in 100% ethanol (8 hours), xylene (2 hours) and hot paraffin wax (65°C, 2 hours). 

Moreover, the labels are also resistant to standard ethylene oxide gas sterilization, consisting of a 60-minute exposure to 759 mg/L of ethylene oxide gas, at 55°C, and 40-80% relative humidity, followed by a two-hour aeration cycle. They are also resistant to continuous wiping and rubbing with surface sanitizing wipes such as Sani- Wipe™, Eco-Wipe™ and Eco-Wipe™ Duo. For use on small surface tissue cassettes, additional preliminary testing is strongly recommended prior to use, including for use with vacuum tissue processors, and automated histology slide strainers.

Compatible with all major brands of thermal transfer barcode printers, these chemical resistant labels can be printed with alphanumeric text, 1D and 2D barcodes and serialized numbers.
