NitroTAG labels are available in a range of sizes and configurations, perfect for identifying small diameter cryo vials, microtubes and tube tops, cardboard or polypropylene cryo/freezer boxes, cell culture plates, and plastic bags. These thermal-transfer cryogenic labels have a strong permanent adhesive that will remain firmly attached, even in low temperature environments, designed for long-term cryo-preservation under cryogenic laboratory conditions including liquid and vapor phase liquid nitrogen (-196°C / -321°F), freezers (-80°C/-112°F), and dry ice transportation.
Waterproof, weatherproof, and durable, NitroTAG labels adhere to wet and moist surfaces, withstand a range of extreme temperatures including multiple freeze-thaw cycles, and can be immersed in liquid nitrogen immediately after application, as they do not require the use of additional tape or wrap-around. They are also resistant to spraying with ethanol, isopropanol and other alcohols, bleach, and detergents (testing recommended), as well as continuous wiping and rubbing with surface sanitizing wipes such as Sani- Wipe™, Eco-Wipe™ and Eco-Wipe™ Duo.
Labels can be printed with all major brands of thermal-transfer printers. They are available in a range of colors and sizes and can be printed with alphanumeric text, as well as 1D and 2D barcodes.
*If intended application is storage in liquid nitrogen, prior testing of these labels on end user’s vial cap is strongly recommended.
