Keep All Your Samples Labeled and Organized with LASTRADA™

With the harsh conditions of a CMT laboratory, it's challenging to find labels that won't melt, come off, or the inks runs.  We did the searching for you and found a label and printer combination that can withstand a 350-degree oven, as well as weeks in a damp aggregate bag. In this Lightning Demo, we'll show you how LASTRADA makes it easy to generate labels for containers with our recommended label and printer combination, saving time and keeping you organized.

We recommend using 3in x 5in desktop thermal transfer labels (Uline, S-17000) and 3.30in x 244ft desktop thermal transfer ribbons (Uline, S-8037),  and the Zebra GK420t Direct Thermal/Thermal Transfer Printer*.

A requirement of all laboratory accreditation programs is to label every bag box and bucket of material processed in CMT labs. Repeatedly handwriting the same information on multiple containers is tedious if done at all. Finding labels that can withstand the condition of a laboratory environment is challenging to say the least.

In this Lightning Demo, I'll show you how to generate a label with little to no effort using a recommended label and printer combinations, which withstand a 350-degree oven, as well as weeks in a damp aggregate bag.

We highly recommend Zebra Direct Thermal/ Thermal Transfer Monochrome Printer GK420T. You can read about the printer as well as view the specification sheet on the Zebra website.

I am a private lab and I have received a sample and I want to label all the containers. I have logged in all the relevant information. Next, I need to go ahead and run the label template. You can see all the information is complete and ready to be printed and put on the containers. I am doing production QC and I have logged my samples. From here I'm going to print a label for my containers. I can print as many labels as I need.

The sample tags I used in this demo are available for download in our Customer Resource Center, as well as instructions for our recommended printer settings.
