  • Printable with all major thermal-transfer printer brands
  • Perfect for labeling microscope slides used throughout the histological staining process
  • Resistant to gamma irradiation (tested up to 50 KGy)

Thermal-transfer printable labels designed for microscope slides. These highly glossy labels repel stains and do not acquire colors from histological stains, such as hematoxylin or eosin. The labels and printed information are xylene-resistant when used in combination with our XAR-class of solvent-resistant ribbons. The print will resist xylene, toluene, alcohol, MEK, and other solvents and chemicals without needing additional protection. Ideal for histology lab applications.
