Anachem has launched a "unique permanent custom bar coding service" to help laboratory users identify samples more effectively.

The vials from the leading supplier of chromatography and laboratory consumables will have their own individual bar code to guarantee the identity of their contents and position within a stored location.

A spokesperson for the firm pointed out that each bar code is made from a ceramic material that is permanently bonded to any glass laboratory product, for example a test tube or bottle.

"This eradicates the need for conventional sticky labels that can come off during storage or use, rendering the valuable contents unidentifiable," said the representative.

"Vials that have a 2-D bar code can be read from underneath using a flat-bed scanner while the vial is positioned on an automated system," he continued, explaining that for immediate recognition, companies have the option to apply corporate logos or company names to the side of the vials to give a "customised, professional appearance".

Anachem’s bar-coded vials are compatible with all solvents including DMSO, DCM and methanol, with the company intending to provide an "ideal solution" for tracing samples in applications including chemical screening, sample collection for biological fluid testing and QC analysis.ADNFCR-1050-ID-18354564-ADNFCR
