CryoSTUCK® labels provide an ideal solution for bio-banks and bio-repositories that need labeling or relabeling of already frozen samples (plastic and glass vials and tubes) inside liquid nitrogen tanks and freezers as this task proofs challenging due to extremely low temperatures, frost and moisture accumulated on the surface of these cryogenic containers. These cryogenic labels can be applied on -80ºC surfaces and then stored back in laboratory freezers or liquid nitrogen to preserve the integrity of the sample. Available in roll format for thermal-transfer printing which provides a smudge-proof printout even in extreme low temperatures. On vials and tubes, it is recommended that CryoSTUCK® labels are applied with an overlap of at least 0.25” to ensure proper adherence to the frozen surface.
The labels can adhere to already frozen vials (no thawing required)
Ideal for long-term storage in cryogenic conditions (-196°C)
Ideal for safely thawing in water baths
Printable with all major thermal-transfer printer brands
*Prior testing of these labels on end user’s vials/tubes, and that they are applied with an overlap of at least 0.25″ for proper adherence, is recommended.
Yes, thermal CryoSTUCK® labels require a thermal-transfer ribbon to achieve the proper printout. These cryo labels require aXARribbon of the same width or larger.
Yes, our unique CryoSTUCK labels are now available in sheet format, for printing with laser printers. For our Laser CryoSTUCK labels clickhere.
Yes, CryoSTUCK labels have been especially designed for the purpose of labeling already frozen vials and tubes. Thesecryogeniclabels 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 seehere.
Please consult our handysizing guidewhere you will find recommendations for the most common vial/tube sizes.
Label design and barcodingsoftwarecan be used to create templates that conform to the size of your label. You can then insert design elements within the template, for easy printing.
No, we don’t recommend our standard CryoSTUCK labels for this purpose. To cover-up existing labels, ourblackout CryoSTUCKlabels will conceal pre-existing information, while ourclear CryoSTUCKlabels can be applied over an existing label, acting as a laminate to reinforce it.
For optimal adhesion, wipe away any visibly accumulated frost with a clean lint-free disposable wipe (e.g: KimWipe™). Apply the edge of the label first and press firmly to anchor it, while avoiding excessive contact with the adhesive. If you have a wrap-around CryoSTUCK, apply the printable area first. Then press the label securely into position along the vials’ entire circumference. Our thermal-transfer format CryoSTUCK® labels require an overlap of at least 0.25” to produce a secure adhesion to frozen vials and tubes.
