Blackout CryoSTUCK® labels are designed for applying to already frozen vials and tubes and serve to conceal the existing information. Ideal for re-labeling of frozen vials when removal of the existing label is not possible. These labels will completely obscure the existing label and blockout the information underneath. The re-labeled frozen vials can be stored back inside liquid nitrogen or a freezer for long-term preservation. On vials and tubes, it is recommended that CryoSTUCK® labels are applied with an overlap of at least 0.25” to ensure proper adherence to the frozen surface.
- The labels can adhere to already frozen vials (as low as -80ºC), Ideal for long-term storage in cryogenic conditions (-196°C)
- Unique opaque design allows the labels to obscure all pre-existing information
*Prior testing of these labels on end user’s vials/tubes, and that they are applied with an overlap of at least 0.25″ for proper adherence, is recommended.
Frequently asked questions
Yes, thermal CryoSTUCK® labels require a thermal-transfer ribbon to achieve the proper printout. These cryo labels require a RR-class ribbon of the same width or larger.
Yes, our unique CryoSTUCK labels are now available in sheet format, for printing with laser printers. For our Laser CryoSTUCK labels click here.
Yes, CryoSTUCK labels have been especially designed for the purpose of labeling already frozen vials and tubes. These cryogenic labels can be applied at -80°C/-112°F, eliminating the need to thaw valuable samples.
Yes, CryoSTUCK labels can be used to label samples prior to storing them in low-temperature freezers and liquid nitrogen tanks.
No, CryoSTUCK labels are coated with an extra-permanent adhesive, that is not made for easy removal. For removable cryogenic solutions see here.
Please consult our handy sizing guide where you will find recommendations for the most common vial/tube sizes.
Label design and barcoding 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, these blackout CryoSTUCK labels have a unique opaque design which allows them to conceal pre-existing labels. Perfect for covering-up obsolete information, while still being able to be applied on frozen surfaces.
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.
For optimal adhesion, wipe away any visibly accumulated frost with a clean lint-free disposable wipe (e.g: KimWipe™). Apply the edge of the label first and press firmly to anchor it, while avoiding excessive contact with the adhesive. If you have a wrap-around CryoSTUCK, apply the printable area first. Then press the label securely into position along the vials’ entire circumference. Our thermal-transfer format CryoSTUCK® labels require an overlap of at least 0.25” to produce a secure adhesion to frozen vials and tubes.
