Frequently asked questions
Yes, Cryo-OmniTAGTM labels need a ribbon to be printed with all common thermal-transfer printers. To achieve the proper printout, we recommend a XAR-class ribbon of the same width or larger.
No, Cryo-OmniTAG labels are best applied at room temperature. For labeling already frozen vials and tubes, we recommend CryoSTUCK® labels, a line of cryogenic labels especially designed for that purpose.
Please consult our handy sizing guide where you will find recommendations for the most common vial/tube sizes.
Barcoding or label design software can be used to create templates that conform to the size of your label. You can then insert design elements within the template, for easy printing.
Yes, we can provide our Cryo-OmniTAG cryo labels preprinted with full-color graphics and logos, as well as variable or serialized information from a database. Learn more about our custom printing options.
No, Cryo-OmniTAG labels are coated with a permanent adhesive, that is not made for easy removal. For removable cryogenic solutions see here.
Yes, Cryo-OmniTAG labels can be inscribed using permanent ink cryogenic markers, such as our Science-Marker™.
Yes, our Cryo-OmniTAG labels will withstand spraying and wiping with alcohols, including 70% ethanol, and 100% isopropanol.
Yes, these labels are designed to withstand extreme temperatures, including cryogenic and high-heat conditions. Suitable for use in various sterilization protocols, such as steam autoclaves. For more thermal-transfer autoclave-resistant solutions, see here.
No, if you want to reinforce an existing label, we offer clear CryoSTUCK labels that can be applied over an existing label while not concealing their printed information. They can thus add an extra layer of protection for your label.
