What are cryo labels?

These cryogenic-compatible labels feature an extra-permanent adhesive for secure biopreservation of samples. They were designed for long-term biopreservation under cryogenic laboratory conditions, including helium, liquid and vapor phase liquid nitrogen, freezers, and dry ice transportation.

How do you label frozen vials?

To properly label legacy vials, it’s imperative to use labels that will affix to frozen surfaces, such as CryoSTUCK®. These labels can be applied at -80°C then stored in liquid nitrogen tanks (-196°C) or low-temperature freezers for further preservation.

What is a cryo vial used for?

Description: Designed for the storage of biological material, human or animal cells, at temperatures as low as –196 °C (should only be used in the gas phase of liq…

What are cryo babies?

Our patented Cryo-Babies® and Cryo-Tags® withstand both long term cryogenic storage conditions and conventional freezer storage. Cryogenic labels are chemically inert with a solvent resistant adhesive that will adhere to croygenic vials, microtubes, test tubes, glass vials, beakers and metal racks.

What temperature is liquid nitrogen?

Liquid nitrogen (LN) is an inert cryogenic fluid with a temperature of − 196 °C [− 320 °F].

Can cryo vials be autoclaved?

Small, capped vials designed to withstand ultra-low temperatures; various capacities; may be sterile, non-sterile, and/or autoclavable; includes internally and externally threaded vials; ideal for sample storage in vapor state liquid nitrogen.

What is the difference between internal and external thread Cryovials?

An external threaded cap can cause cryovial caps to bump into one another and not fit correctly inside a freezer box. Internal thread cryovials offer a more streamlined look and fit. Some cryovials are designed to fit easily in freezer boxes and tube racks created for 1.5ml “eppendorf” tubes.

Is liquid nitrogen colder than dry ice?

Liquid nitrogen is much colder than dry ice—usually between -346°F and -320.44°F—which also makes it more dangerous to handle. Because it’s a liquid and not a solid, it’s also more challenging to work with in many settings and can be difficult to contain.

What is the coldest liquid known to man?

Liquid helium has a boiling point of -452 degrees F below zero; it is the coldest material known. It is also the only material on earth that never exists as a solid, only as a cryogenic liquid and as a gas.

Are Cryo treated tubes better?

The bottom line is that cryogenic treatment is no remedy for inferior materials or defects in tube construction and it won’t transform a rebranded modern manufacture tube into a genuine N.O.S. Mullard a or Sylvania tube—it just doesn’t work that way.

What is a cryo vial?

Cryo Vial External Thread, PP Abdos Cryo Vial is designed for long-term cryogenic storage of biological samples, all type of cells and any enzymes or reagents. These cryo vials are designed for mechanical freezing and it’s a screw cap reduces the risk of contamination due to handling.

Can Cryovials be autoclaved?

4ml External Thread, Freestanding Cryovial, Sterile, Silicone Seal. 4ml External Thread, Freestanding Cryovial, Sterile, Silicone Seal 100/Bag, PP, Certified DNase, RNase, Pyrogen and DNA Free. Autoclavable, Temp as Low as -196 Degree C.

What kind of labels are used for cryo vials?

Our cryogenic labels for cryo vials, microtubes (i.e, Eppendorf), cryo boxes, freezer boxes, tube and vial caps, and other cryogenic containers are available for thermal-transfer, direct thermal, laser, and inkjet printers.

How to prepare a label for cryogenic freezing?

Select the correct size label for the product you are labeling. If your label is going to be exposed to cryogenic freezing it needs to wrap around your vial or tube and onto itself with a minimum overlap of 1/8” for the best adhesion. 3. Apply the label properly to ensure maximum adhesion by following the below steps:

Can a cryo ID be stored in liquid nitrogen?

Cryo-ID-Kit™ includes plastic Cryo-Cards™ with connection hooks and thermal transfer cryo labels. The cryogenic kit can withstand long-term storage in liquid nitrogen or ultra-low temperature freezers. Tags can be inscribed with permanent…

How to label a vial of liquid nitrogen?

1. Select the proper label material and adhesive based on whether the label will be applied to your vial at room temperature or once frozen. 2. Select the correct size label for the product you are labeling.
