DYMO-Compatible CryoSTUCK® – Cryogenic Labels for Frozen Surfaces (Patent Pending)
Size: 0.5″ x 1″ / 12.7mm x 25.4mm
Labels across: 2
Available colors: White
Application temperature: As low as -80°C (-112°F)
Temperature Range: -196°C to +70°C (-321°F to +158°F)
LabTAG’s unique and innovative CryoSTUCK® technology is now available for labels compatible with DYMO LabelWriter printers. These solvent-resistant cryogenic labels are specially designed to be directly applied to already frozen surfaces like vials and tubes stored under deep freeze conditions (-80°C/-112°F), which are normally very challenging to label. These labels help preserve the integrity of valuable temperature-sensitive samples and specimens, since there is no need to thaw the containers before attaching them to the frozen vial. They come with a permanent adhesive that will keep the label from falling off or flagging over time under liquid nitrogen’s conditions. Hence, once the labels are applied, the containers/vials can be returned for long-term preservation in liquid nitrogen (-196°C/-321°F) or ultra-low temperature freezers (-80°C). CryoSTUCK® labels are ideal for usage in research institutes, clinical laboratories, biobanks, biotechnology companies, and other.
In addition to their CryoSTUCK feature, these DYMO-compatible labels display excellent resistance to routinely used laboratory chemicals like detergents, alcohols (100% Ethanol immersion: up to 15 minutes), acetone, xylene (immersion: up to 30 minutes), disinfecting solutions, as well as surface-sanitizing wipes.
· Quick labeling of frozen vials and tubes (no thawing required)
· Withstand exposure to solvents, water baths, and condensation
· Compatible with the 450 series and 4XL DYMO® LabelWriters
· Convenient to print, no need for ribbons or other ink source
To ensure permanent adherence of these labels in ultra low temperature storage (-80ºC to -196ºC), please wipe the surface of the vial/tube with a clean lint-free wipe (i.e. KimWipe™) prior to affixing the label to remove excess frost.
Frequently asked questions
No, DYMO-compatible CryoSTUCK® labels do not require a ribbon, or any other ink sources to be printed.
Yes, CryoSTUCK labels are available in sheet format, for printing with laser printers. For our Laser CryoSTUCK labels click here.
Yes, CryoSTUCK labels have been especially designed for the purpose of labeling already frozen vials and tubes. These cryogenic labels can be applied at -80°C/-112°F, eliminating the need to thaw valuable samples.
After removal from liquid nitrogen, we recommend that tubes are allowed to equilibrate on dry ice for at least 5 minutes before labeling.
To ensure proper application of these labels, wipe the surface of the vial/tube with a clean lint-free disposable wipe (e.g: KimWipe™) prior to affixing the label to remove excess frost. Apply the edge of the label first, pressing firmly to anchor it, and then apply the label securely into position along the vials’ entire circumference. Our DYMO-compatible CryoSTUCK® labels do not require an overlap to produce a secure adhesion to frozen vials and tubes.
Yes, CryoSTUCK labels can be used to label samples prior to storing them in low-temperature freezers and liquid nitrogen tanks.
No, the vials can be stored in liquid nitrogen (-196°C), or ultra-low temperature freezers (-80°C) immediately following label application, requiring no cure time.
Yes, these labels also exhibit excellent resistance to direct exposure and immersion in harsh chemicals and solvents, such as alcohols, acetone, xylene, and disinfecting solutions.
No, CryoSTUCK labels are coated with an extra-permanent adhesive, that is not made for easy removal. For removable cryogenic solutions see here.
Please consult our handy sizing guide where you will find recommendations for the most common vial/tube sizes.
Label design and barcoding software can 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 DYMO-compatible CryoSTUCK labels for this purpose. Our thermal-transfer blackout CryoSTUCK labels will conceal pre-existing labels, while our clear CryoSTUCK labels can be applied over an existing label, acting as a laminate to reinforce the label.
Our DYMO-compatible CryoSTUCK labels are compatible with the DYMO LabelWriter 450, 450 Turbo, and the 4 XL printer models.
