Frequently asked questions
No, Cryo-LazrTAG™ labels are designed to be printed using desktop laser printer brands, such as Brother, HP, Canon, and Samsung. Laser labels will not feed through consistently, and may damage inkjet printers.
We supply our Cryo-LazrTAG sheet labels in US letter size (8.5” x 11”), in European A4 (210 mm x x297 mm) and Hagaki (4” x 6”). For more information, please consult our expert technical support team.
See our label templates page to find your appropriate format and download the MS Word template associated with your labels.
Yes, Cryo-LazrTAG labels are designed for on-demand printing, they allow only a few labels to be printed, while saving the rest for later. These laser labels can withstand multiple passes in desktop laser printers, and will not peel-off or jam the printer.
Press the print button, then click “properties” next to your printer’s name. Ensure Media/Paper type is set to “label”. If label is not an option, select “thick paper”. For more help with printer troubleshooting see our more detailed FAQ.
No, special toner is not required for printing Cryo-LazrTAG labels. These labels can be printed using standard laser printer toner, compatible with your printer of choice.
Please consult our handy sizing guide where you will find recommendations for the most common vial/tube sizes.
No, These Cryo-LazrTAG labels are not removable. For removable cryogenic labels for laser printers, see here.
Cryo-LazrTAG labels are best applied at room temperature. For labeling already frozen vials and tubes using laser labels, we recommend our new laser CryoSTUCK line of cryogenic labels especially designed for labeling already frozen surfaces.
Laser labels are waterproof and resistant to long-term storage in liquid nitrogen. However, they have limited resistance to harsh chemicals, so for any cryo containers they may encounter chemicals, we recommend our thermal-transfer cryo labels.
Yes, these labels are designed to withstand extreme temperatures, including cryogenic and high-heat conditions. Suitable for use in various sterilization protocols, such as steam autoclaves. For more laser autoclave-resistant solutions, see here.
Yes, Cryo-LazrTAG labels can be inscribed using ballpoint pens, permanent cryogenic markers. We recommend our Science-MarkerTM, which are also alcohol and water-resistant.
For office work, and labeling file folders, we suggest our laser and inkjet printable paper labels.
