SciNote is now integrated with FLUICS Print, truly a plug & play label printing solution with which includes out-of-the-box and quality-tested label prints for use in life sciences labs.

Labels are cryo-proof (liquid nitrogen and -80°C freezer), smear-proof for ethanol and isopropanol, and attach even to cold and humid surfaces. The size 25 mm x 13 mm (1 inch x 0.5 inch) makes them ideal for labeling tubes, plates and other containers.

How to print a label using FLUICS Print

1. Make sure your FLUICS printer is connected to power, turned on and connected to the internet. Enable the printer by entering API key you received along with your printer into FLUICS label Print addon in SciNote. Only Organization administrators can enter the API key.

What is printed on my label?

At the moment SciNote is supporting printing onto rectangular yellow adhesive cryo labels 25 mm x 13 mm (1 inch x 0.5 inch).

One label is printed for each Inventory item, whether that is your sample, biological specimen, reagent, cell line, or something else.

The following information is printed on the label:

  • QR code, which encodes Inventory Item ID
  • Inventory Item ID
  • Inventory Item name (as much of it as it fits onto the label)
