XyliTUFF™ – Extended Exposure Xylene & Chemical-Resistant Labels (Patent Pending)

These solvent and chemical-resistant labels are specially designed for identifying HistoBAR histology cassettes used in Formalin-Fixed, Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) procedures. When thermal-transfer printed with our recommended XAR-class of ink ribbons, and applied onto these cassettes, the label and printed information are fully secured. The printed label resists formalin, ethanol, xylene, and hot paraffin wax procedures encountered during routine FFPE protocols. They are also resistant against toluene, alcohols, hexane, acetone, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), acetonitrile (ACN), and to the new generation of safer clearing and deparaffinizing xylene substitutes such as Histo-Clear™, Pro-Par, and others.


  • Able to withstand exposure and long-term immersion in harsh chemicals and solvents
  • Printable with most major thermal-transfer printer brands
  • Specially designed for HistoBAR histology tissue cassettes
  • Economical alternative to dedicated cassette printers when used with HistoBAR

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, these labels are thermal-transfer printable and require a ribbon to be printed. To achieve the proper printout, these labels require a xylene and solvent-resistant XAR-class ribbon of the same width or larger.

These labels are specially designed for the secure identification of HistoBAR™ histology cassettes used in Formalin-Fixed, Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) procedures.

Apply the adhesive side of the printed label precisely onto the slanted portion of the cassette, with the notches of the label aligned with the indented area. Press the label in place. Position the cassette lid over the specimen and label, then click the lid frame into place. The cassette is now ready for FFPE procedures.

Yes, XyliTUFF labels resist xylene, toluene, alcohol, and other solvents typically found in histology labs.

No, XyliTUFF labels have a permanent adhesive that is not made for easy removal.

No, these labels are specially designed to identify HistoBAR histology cassettes. For microscope slide-compatible labels, see here.

Barcoding or label design software can be used to create templates that conform to your label’s size. You can then insert design elements within the template for easy printing.

Yes, we can provide these XyliTUFF labels preprinted with serialized, variable, alphanumeric, or barcode information from a database. Learn more about our custom printing options.
