The use of color identification in the laboratory can be a powerful tool in conveying information quickly and reducing errors. Color helps to create a visual language that employees are able to process before they are even aware of it. That’s because color, when used as part of a repetitive, standardized system, becomes a part of your automatic, intuitive response.
When paired with reliable labels from Brady, you get the best of both worlds — versatile color identification that remains legible even after withstanding harsh lab conditions such as extreme temperatures and chemicals.
Switching to color printing and labels can even make you more efficient; effective labeling has been found to reduce sample prep time by 80%. Color identification also helps to reinforce employee training and guide workers to complete their tasks more quickly.
With 60% of scientists reporting having experienced some form of label failure, it’s important you have the right tools to prevent costly errors. Here are some additional ways color identification can benefit your organization:
