We have integrated RFID technology into our xylene and chemical-resistant labels to make a durable RFID label that can withstand exposure to harsh chemicals and solvents. RFID XyliTUFF™ labels are designed for a variety of applications where visual and electronic data require chemical resistance for maximum traceability and regulatory compliance. These labels are especially suitable for histology applications where a high level of sample tracking is needed.
Our RFID XyliTUFF labels have the same robust and chemical-resistant adhesive as our standard XyliTUFF™ labels and will display the same adhesion properties, even in the harshest environments. These labels are intended for use on flat surfaces, with up to 15 hours of xylene resistance on microscope slides. They are equally resistant to the new generation of safer clearing and deparaffinizing xylene substitutes such as Histo-Clear™, Pro-Par, and others.
RFID XyliTUFF labels are compatible with handheld, fixed, and integrated UHF RFID readers. They were specially designed to integrate with specimen or warehouse tracking systems, to improve the identification and monitoring of each item, as well as process efficiency. RFID XyliTUFF labels are intended for histopathology, diagnostic, research organizations, health care, medical centers, anatomic pathologic reagents, equipment and technology solutions suppliers, and wherever sample identification requires a high level of chemical resistance.
When printed with our recommended XAR-class of ink ribbons, the visual and electronic components of these labels resist continuous rubbing with surface sanitizing wipes or harsh chemicals. These UHF RFID labels (Class 1, Gen 2) can be printed and encoded with up to 32 hexadecimal characters of information using dedicated RFID thermal-transfer printers. The printout of these chemical-resistant histology and industrial-grade labels can consist of alphanumeric text, 1D and 2D barcodes, as well as serialized RFID or printed data.
- 12” omnidirectional read range*, without direct line-of-sight ensures quick, easy, and accurate reading from every angle
- Read multiple labeled microscope slides at the same time, even when fully immersed (up to 1”/25mm**)
- Excellent stain resistance, ideal for microscope slides used in histology
- Recommended for routine as well as special staining protocols***
- Resistant to xylene, xylene substitutes, toluene, hexane, acetone, alcohols, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), acetonitrile (ACN), and other common solvents
- Compatible with automated slide processors.
* Read range can vary according to the RFID reader being used.
** RFID readability tests of labels immersed in histology reagents is strongly recommended prior to use.
*** Labels should not be placed in the microwave as it may affect their ability to be scanned/read.
