Eppendorf SafeCode System: Track your samples by their ID
Safe and distinct sample ID is key for successful results in the lab. The Eppendorf SafeCode system enables a safe sample vessel tracking at all stages of the lab workflow: from the bench to the long term storage in the ULT freezer.
SafeCode is based on a multi-level coding of the consumables based on prelabeled datamatrix codes. The coding can be read by the Eppendorf RackScan instrument, any handheld datamatrix scanner, or even your smartphone.
The reliable SafeCode cryostorage vial family is now expanded by a series of barcoded classic conical tubes: 5 mL, 15 mL, and 50 mL for daily routine usage at the bench. The well-known Eppendorf conical tubes with all their high-quality aspects are digitalized – on the tubes as well as for documentation purposes.
All SafeCode consumables can be tracked back by the Eppendorf dataport: Specific support material like lot number, certificates, technical drawings, etc. are available online based on the consumable ID. Enhanced by these documentation files related to the specific vessel, the sample ID can automatically be transferred into the eLabNext software for sample location documentation as well as for process documentation. All support files of the vessel are automatically connected to this sample.
The SafeCode system is enhanced by the CryoCube® F740 ULT freezers, VisioNize® freezer notification/ monitoring applications as well as the eLabNext software as further building blocks for a smart and reliable sample handling solution of valuable samples in your lab.
