Eppendorf CryoStorage Vials take advantage of the 3-level coding of the SafeCode system (datamatrix code, barcode, and clear writing) to enable safe sample identification. Up to 96 pre-labeled vials are pre-racked and pre-capped for convenient usage. The vial range covers 0.5 mL to 4.0 mL for a broad range of storage applications at e.g. -80°C in the ULT freezer. CryoStorage Vials are your solution for modern high-density storage with highest sample safety, management, and tracking needs.
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. Barcoding is one step further towards a fast and safe sample identification.
A barcode is an optical representation of data which is machine-readable.
Counting dots and squares?
A barcode is an optical representation of data, which is machine-readable. Classic 1D barcodes code data by varying the width of the parallel lines as well as their spacings. Two-dimensional codes (2D) are based on dots, hexagons, rectangles, or other geometric patterns. These codes are also called data matrix codes.
2D codes are based on the following specifications:
› Finder pattern consists of two constant lines at left and bottom, „clock track“
› The quiet zone surrounds the finder pattern, it should be free of any black-white contrast
› The code can be white on black background or black on white background.
