  • Prints text, barcodes, 2D codes and graphic files
  • Tubes can be marked with any orientation
  • Markings resistant to abrasion and chemicals
  • Markings resistant to low and high temperatures
Overview

Out Direct Tube Marker, White is designed to print text, 1D linear barcodes, 2D data matrix codes and / or graphics directly onto polypropylene sample storage and general-purpose laboratory tubes, substituting the need for labels or stickers for sample identification. Using patent-pending Thermal Pixel Printing technology, the Direct Tube Marker, White prints directly onto the surface of tubes sized from 0.5ml to 50ml.

Clear and durable marking with consistently legible text and barcodes printed at high resolutions is easier and faster than marking by hand. Permanent printing is resistant to water, alcohols (methanol, ethanol, isopropanol), DMSO, haematoxylin, liquid nitrogen and mechanical abrasion. Printed information is stable over a wide temperature range from -196°C to 100°C and markings do not transfer when tubes are manually handled.

The Direct Tube Marker, White delivery package contains tube adapters with hole diameters 8.5mm, 11.5mm and 12.7mm; these are compatible with most commonly-used tubes. Other adapters are available to order separately, please specify at time of ordering.

Key Features
  • Broad Compatibility
    • Prints directly on the surface of plastic laboratory and sample storage tubes in seconds
    • Most 0.5ml to 50ml laboratory tubes with a smooth surface can be printed
    • Adjustable tube support platform allows printing on tubes without a lip or collar
    • Tube profiles created in the software can be saved for future reference and sample tracking
    • Adjustable sled pivot point improves overall print quality for larger tubes and labels
    • Wide range of adapters available for differing diameter tubes
  • Flexible Label Printing to Suit Your Needs
    • Tubes can be marked with any orientation
    • Can print text, 1D linear barcodes, 2D datamatrix codes and graphic files (monochrome .bmp, .gif, .tiff) such as logos
    • Several lines of text can be printed, such as: sample name, your name, date, time etc.
    • All TrueType fonts available on the connected PC can be printed
    • Font size and type will determine the maximum available printable content
  • High-Quality & Durable Printing
    • Thermal Pixel Printing technology produces clearer and more durable marking than marker pens
