Marketed by: Computer Imprintable Label Systems International
Removing labels from reusable labware is now easier with the new CILS-9100R Computer Printable Label Range. The laboratory labels provide high-strength bonding to all plastic and glassware, yet can be cleanly removed without leaving adhesive residue. Variable data such as bar codes and serial numbers can be printed in minutes from a laser or thermal transfer printer, eliminating the risk of smudged and illegible handwritten data during sterilization and decontaminating cycles, extreme temperatures, and chemical exposure. The CILS-9100R labels can be manufactured to any size, shape, and color-coded design.
