Love these labels. Use them for our media and buffers. No problems autoclaving, very easy to remove before sending bottles to be washed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Steri-ThermoTAG labels are thermal-transfer printable and require a ribbon to be printed. To achieve the proper printout, these labels require a smudge-proof RR-class ribbon of the same width or larger.

No, Steri-ThermoTAG labels can only be printed with thermal-transfer printers. For laser and inkjet printable autoclave-resistant labels we suggest Steri-LazrTAG and Steri-JetTAG.

Yes, we offer two kinds of autoclave tape. Our TAUT-class autoclave-resistant tape that can be printed with thermal-transfer printers, and our STRAT-class tape, which is perfect for use as an indicator of steam sterilization.

Yes, Steri-ThermoTAG labels can withstand high-heat conditions, up to temperatures of +150°C.

No, Steri-ThermoTAG labels are not suited for deep-freeze or cryogenic applications. For thermal-transfer labeling solutions that are both autoclave-resistant and withstand storage in cryogenic conditions, click here.

No, Steri-ThermoTAG labels are not chemical-resistant. For autoclave-resistant labels that will resist exposure to alcohols such as ethanol and isopropanol, click here.
