Use throughout your lab or site
RFID labels and tags can be used throughout the lab or site and are not limited to conventional labelling of tubes, plates and containers. Plastic encapsulated tags can, for example, withstand sample preparation steps even in acid environments and so can be used throughout your lab workflow. Paper RFID tags can also be printed on with sample details.
Location & Storage
The big advantages are that unlike barcode labels you don’t have to ‘see’ a label to read it, and because each label (tag) has a unique RFID you can read many labels simultaneously. In the laboratory or storage areas this means that you can:
Move things around without a handheld reader
RFID readers mounted in fixed locations will pick up movement of samples without needing a handheld reader. e.g. in and out of fridges / freezers, sample reception areas or storage locations, being booked into sample reception, used for external sampling or for inventory management / location tracking.
Perform multiple reads
There’s no need to read or scan individual samples, as an appropriate RFID reader can pick up all the RFID labels from samples in boxes, kits, racks or plates or even a defined lab area in a single read, saving time and errors.
Finally there’s no need to pick every sample up to read the label or scan it to find missing, urgent or interesting samples. Just use a portable RFID reader and walk around for a match. Very useful for any busy lab, fridges / freezers, clinics, hospitals, biobanks or large storage locations saving time and reducing problems with lost samples.
Can be combined with barcode labelling
Using RFID doesn’t mean dropping barcode labelling, we can design and source label stock and printers to combine the two to give you full continuity with your current systems. Our sample logging and labelling software routine can for example replace or enhance your existing LIMS sample entry mechanism.
