FAQ: Laser Markers

What kind of tubes are compatible with the Lambda8?

Tubes must have at least one opaque wall to be compatible with the Lambda8. If tubes are completely transparent, the laser beam will go straight through the tube without laser-etching. The Micronic hybrid tubes are compatible, for example, because they have a blank white wall on one side that’s ideal for laser-etching. The FluidX jacket tubes are also compatible because they have black side walls. Not sure if your labware is compatible? We’d be happy to perform tests in-house. Contact us today.

The Lambda8 can laser-etch a variety of labware like sample storage tubes, ANSI/SLAS format rack, caps, and microscope slides. It can also laser-etch materials like aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium.

Yes. The Lambda8 can laser-etch tubes filled with samples.

Yes. The Lambda8 can laser-etch tubes straight from the freezer.

The Lambda8 can laser-etch 1 tube in approximately 1-3 seconds. Throughput depends on two things: the number of tubes in the adapter and the amount of information being etched onto each tube. Please note: the time needed to manually pick and place tubes into the adapter is not included in this approximation.

The Lambda8 only laser-etches the tube surface, so there’s no risk to the sample within the tube.
