CryoSTUCK® – Cryogenic Laser Labels for Frozen Vials and Containers
Label size: 1.28″ x 0.5″ / 32.5mm x 12.7mm
Colors available: White, Blue, Green Apple, Yellow, or Orange
Adhesive: Permanent; for frozen containers
Application temperature: As low as -80°C (-112°F)
Temperature range: From -196°C to +100°C (-320.8°F to +212°F)
These cryogenic labels are designed to be applied directly, and will rapidly adhere, to frozen cryovials, tubes, cryoboxes, as well as plastic and cardboard freezer boxes, which are difficult to label under deep-freeze conditions (as low as -80°C / -112°F). Designed for long-term preservation in liquid nitrogen (-196°C / -320.8°F), -80°C (-112°F) freezers, for dry ice transportation, and can withstand temperatures up to +100°C (212°F)*. Water and condensation-resistant, they withstand immersion and thawing in water baths.
Printable with all common brands of laser printers to obtain a sharp, smudge-proof printout that is also resistant to mild laboratory chemicals (spray and swab). They can be applied on frozen vials and tubes without the need of an overlap and can also be written on with our Cryo-Markers.
• Ideal for identifying temperature sensitive samples, no thawing of container or cure time required
• Perfect for long-term storage in cryogenic conditions (-196°C) and ultra-low temperature freezers (no overlap nor extra lamination needed)
• Quick template set-up, and printable with office and desktop laser printers (will not jam printers)
* These labels have been tested to withstand up to 2 hours of 150°C/302°F dry heat. Some softening of the adhesive is observed, which is restored when the label is returned to ambient conditions.
Frequently asked questions
No, Laser CryoSTUCK® labels are available in sheet format, for printing with desktop laser printers. For our thermal CryoSTUCK options, that will require a ribbon, 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.
We provide free online MS Word templates for all our laser labels. See our label templates page to find your appropriate format and download the template associated with your labels.
To ensure proper application of these labels, wipe the surface of the vial/tube with a clean lint-free disposable wipe (e.g: KimWipe™) prior to affixing the label to remove excess frost. Apply the edge of the label first and press firmly to anchor it, while avoiding excessive contact with the adhesive. Then press the label securely into position along the vials’ entire circumference. Our laser format CryoSTUCK® labels do not require an overlap to produce a secure adhesion to frozen vials and tubes.
