StainerShield XT™ chemical-resistant and solvent-resistant microscope slide labels enable histology labs to use barcode technology to permanently, positively and reliably identify and track specimen slides, even when subjected to the harshest chemicals, stains and protocols. More than just a “xylene-resistant label,” StainerShield XT slide labels can withstand exposures to hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stains, Immunohistochemistry (IHC) special stains, xylene, toluene, acetone, buffers, alcohol, extreme heat, microwaves and decloaking chambers.
StainerShield XT slide labels are printed using a desktop thermal slide label printer. They produce clear, crisp printed barcodes and text that remain legible, do not fade or smear, and produce successful scans - even after stainer processing. They do not require any additional flap or overlay for protection.
StainerShield XT slide labels are designed specifically for use in histology labs. This superior technology has been tested and is compliant for retention under Library of Congress standards, and exceeds CAP and CLIA requirements.
We use StainerShield XT labels for all barcoded histology slides, especially for use on stainers for IHC and Special Stains, to ensure an uncomplicated workflow for all histology specimens. These are used for, and survive, all histology processes - H&E, SS, IHC, ISH. A big plus is that the label glue is not affected by solvents. They are extremely durable and work very well in all applications.”
