Labeling laboratory tubes and vials has never been so easy and flexible

Label different tube types in one step and manage label design and data flexibly from any workstation. The Sign is more than just a laboratory label printer and adapts to your processes.

Versatile laboratory labeling:
One device for all tube types

Thanks to its design, the Sign enables the printing and application of labels for a wide range of laboratory tube types – all in a single device.

Thanks to its labeling module for precise label application and the flexible 4-jaw gripper, the Sign can handle a wide variety of tube types, sizes and brands. This allows a different type of tube to be used in each of the 12 racks.

Design your label layouts quickly and easily with our included software. What’s more, you can also use any other software you choose, as our job manager ensures that your software’s inputs are seamlessly translated into work steps for the sign.
