Sample labelling

HF RFID Near Absolute Zero at EMBL

HID's Piccolino tags manage the technological balance between smallest design and highest possible robustness. This results in safe and reproducible processes in the laboratory.

Sample handling at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL)

With the objective of researching active ingredients for new pharmaceutical medicines, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) processes more than 200,000 crystalline samples per year. The samples are stored at almost negative 200 degrees Celsius and continuously analyzed in several test series in an electron synchrotron at room temperature.

The sample handling is highly automated and supported by robots. Continuous identification during the test series is ensured by labeling the sample holders with cryo-resistant HF RFID tags.

Richard Aufreiter, VP Product Marketing, Identification Technologies, HID Global explains in an interview with RFID & Wireless IoT Global, why the use of RFID tags is the best performing solution to ensure that not a single sample is lost in the automated process due to a missing tag.
