Overview

FluidX IntelliXmark™ Tube Marker; for printing text, 1D linear barcodes, 2D data matrix codes and/or graphics directly onto PP tubes

  • IntelliXmark™ is designed to print text, 1D linear barcodes, 2D data matrix codes and / or graphics directly onto polypropylene sample storage and general-purpose laboratory tubes, substituting the need for labels or stickers for sample identification
  • Using patent-pending Thermal Pixel Printing technology, IntelliXmark™ prints directly onto the surface of tubes sized from 0.5ml to 50ml
  • Clear and durable marking with consistently legible text and barcodes printed at high resolutions is easier and faster than marking by hand
  • Permanent printing is resistant to water, alcohols (methanol, ethanol, isopropanol), DMSO, haematoxylin, liquid nitrogen and mechanical abrasion
  • Printed information is stable over a wide temperature range from -196°C to 100°C and markings do not transfer when tubes are manually handled
  • The IntelliXmark™ delivery package contains tube adapters with hole diameters 8.5mm, 11.5mm and 12.7mm; these are compatible with most commonly-used tubes
  • Other adapters are available to order separately, please specify at time of ordering
Key Features

Broad compatibility

  • Prints directly on the surface of plastic laboratory and sample storage tubes in seconds
  • Most 0.5ml to 50ml laboratory tubes with a smooth surface can be printed
  • Adjustable tube support platform allows printing on tubes without a lip or collar
  • Tube profiles created in the software can be saved for future reference and sample tracking
  • Adjustable sled pivot point improves overall print quality for larger tubes and labels
  • Wide range of adapters available for differing diameter tubes

Flexible label printing to suit your needs

  • Tubes can be marked with any orientation
  • Can print text, 1D linear barcodes, 2D datamatrix codes and graphic files (monochrome .bmp, .gif, .tiff) such as logos
  • Several lines of text can be printed, such as: sample name, your name, date, time etc.
  • All TrueType fonts available on the connected PC can be printed
  • Font size and type will determine the maximum available printable content

High-quality and durable printing

  • Thermal Pixel Printing technology produces clearer and more durable marking than marker pens
  • Metallic blue, black and white ink ribbons are available for a range of colored tubes and colored contents
  • Printing straight onto the tube surface is much easier than marking by hand or adhesive label
  • Quick and easy to change ink ribbon
  • Marking resistant to 70% ethanol, 70% isopropanol, >98% methanol, DMSO*, pure haematoxylin, liquid nitrogen and mechanical abrasion
  • Printing is temperature resistant from -196°C (liquid nitrogen) to 100°C
  • 300m ink ribbon will mark up to 100,000 tubes**

*Blue ribbon resistant to 70% DMSO, black & white ribbons resistant to 100% DMSO

**Dependant on size of label print
