Trying to encode your vessel label?
»Stored vessels must be labeled« – something every lab member agrees on. In reality, you always find some vessels in your freezer without any labeling or with non-readable labeling. Clear labeling is recommended to make reading as easy and as reliable as possible for everyone. Printed labels on vessels in plain writing are the minimum condition for safe reading. The barcode is one step further towards fast and safe sample identification.
A barcode is an optical representation of data which is machine-readable.
