Labels for Histology

LabTAG® provides labels and ribbons for every step of the histological process, from tissue extraction and preparation to staining and imaging. Our xylene-resistant labels for histology are designed for microscope slides, paraffin wax blocks, plastic containers, slide boxes stored in deep-freeze conditions, and resin embedding.  

Our chemical-resistant labels withstand direct exposure to and immersion in xylene, toluene, alcohols, formalin, hexane, acetone, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), acetonitrile (ACN), as well as other harsh chemicals and organic solvents.

Xylene & Chemical-Resistant Labels for Microscope Slides

  • Excellent stain resistance, ideal for glass microscope slides used in histology. Recommended for routine or special staining protocols  
  • Resistant to xylene, toluene, hexanes, alcohols, acetone, eosin Y, hematoxylin, and the new generation of safer, non-toxic xylene alternatives/substitutes
  • Temperature range on microscope slides from -80°C/-112°F to +120°C/+248°F. Suitable for use in automated slide processors
  • Compatible with all common thermal-transfer barcode printers


Xylene-Resistant Labels for Paraffin Wax Blocks

  • Adhere to hard-to-stick surfaces, including paraffin wax used for histology applications
  • Withstand a range of temperatures (-55°C/-67°F to +70°C/+158°F). Suitable for use on recently cooled wax blocks
  • Resistant to harsh chemicals and solvents, including xylene, toluene, hexanes, alcohols, acetone, and methyl ethyl ketone (MEK)
  • Compatible with all common thermal-transfer barcode printers


Self-Laminating Labels for Microscope Slides

  • Over-laminating flap protects these labels from long-term immersion in xylene
  • Perfect for identifying slides throughout slide processing and for various staining procedures
  • Can be used during the antigen retrieval process in immunohistochemistry protocols
  • Compatible with existing label printing systems and ideal for use with tissue microarray systems, such as the Galileo TMA CK4600 system
