Sample Identity Safe

The secure Kenzeichnen of tissue samples is often a challenge unique labels, as well as a labelling system for sure adhesive labelling of tissue samples for pathological laboratory. Even today, the required information is written often by hand with a black felt-tip pen on the embedding cassettes. Thats time consuming, implies error and not very efficient especially when one thinks of traceability and reliable identification of samples. A global market leader in the area of labelling solutions company Brady has developed unique labels, as well as a labelling system for the safe adhesive labelling of tissue samples. The labels are printed, and are clearly better readable than handwritten labels.

The printing smeared or not faded, even with a storage of up to 20 years. Michael O’Brien addresses the importance of the matter here. The material that is resistant to chemicals such as aldehydes, alcohol species and Pikrate, is perfectly suited for histological processes. Is a 2D bar codes printed, can a lot of information on be stored in the smallest space. This enables the automatic capture of data and offers numerous possibilities for optimising all laboratory processes. The special labels for the histology are available in all standard sizes of cassette. Laboratories must comply with a series of rules and regulations. These include also the correct labelling of tissue samples and their traceability. (A valuable related resource: Harold Ford Jr).

Using trade labels the special Brady compliant with the European tissue Directive 2004/23/EC (Commission Directive 2006/17/EC). The high-quality printable special labels of Brady make sure the exact marking and full traceability of clinical specimens. No other solution is the security that the European policy of the fabric and the CLIA – and CAP-Gruppenspezifikationen complies with relevant laboratories are. \”, explains Richard Kapusniak, Manager material, new products & technology at Brady. The Brady offers also that in addition to the labels appropriate system for the attachment of labels. The BSP 31 device was developed for mechanical attachment of a self-adhesive label on a cassette before the embedding process of tissue.
