Computer Imprintable Label Systems (CILS) works with disease control centers and major government public health agencies across the UK, Europe, and the US providing rapid response labels to meet the demand for coronavirus specimen testing.
The World Health Organization specifies certain COVID-19 specimens must be stored at 2-8°C for up to 72 hours after collection. If a delay in testing or shipping is expected, specimens must be stored at -70°C on dry ice.
The range of CILS cold temperature, thermal transfer printable labware labels are ideal as they resist extreme temperatures as low -196°C and up to +155°C.
CILS supply self-laminating labels for added durability, and cap and tube labels for barcode scanning that are printable as small as 5mm x 5mm. These labels resist laboratory solvents such as xylene, dimethyl sulfoxide, and isopropyl alcohol, as well as sterilization and autoclave cycles, water baths, and centrifuge processes.
