Brady Corporation (NYSE:BRC) is pleased to announce the release of the upgraded v2.0 LABXPERT(tm) Laboratory Labeling System, offering new features for creating fast, legible, durable labels designed for use in the lab environment.

The LABXPERT printer can be used to produce labels for lab samples, small custom safety labels and other general laboratory ID labels on the spot using Brady labels that withstand the most severe lab conditions, including exposure to solvents and moisture and extreme low temperatures.

Using the LABXPERT printer, label information is readable by everyone every time, plus, it is eight times faster than handwriting, reducing time spent labeling.

The Brady LABXPERT printer can be used for all lab applications including vials, vial tops, slides, well plates, and other laboratory vessels. The system features built-in lab applications including vial size templates, one-touch time and date stamp, auto serialization for fast aliquots, bar coding capabilities, PC connection for downloading print jobs from a user database, 300 dpi print head for sharp resolution and reliable bar code reads, and 140 Greek and laboratory symbols.

The new v2.0 LABXPERT printer offers these additional features:
. NEW USB Port Connectivity – Lab staff who work from a laptop computer can now print directly to the LABXPERT printer.
. NEW Mirror Image Label Printing – Users can now print mirror image text on clear labels for use on the underside of Petri dishes, allowing for easy readability from above the container.
. NEW Nine Additional Font Sizes – 21 total font sizes for clear legible printing on any label size.
. NEW Battery Life Indicator – helps avoid interruption of print jobs from power shortage.
. NEW Bar Code Enhancements – Users can now fit more barcode.
. NEW Redesigned Supply Cartridge – For easier use and more efficient performance.

Brady LABXPERT label materials have been tested to withstand the extreme conditions found in most laboratories. The labels will not fall off, crack, peel, or smudge when exposed to extreme temperatures such as Liquid Nitrogen (-196C) or Autoclave (+121C). Harsh chemicals including Xylene, Ethanol, DMSO, IPA, Toluene, and boiling water do not affect the integrity of the labels. The low-profile label materials will not jam in centrifuges or other equipment.
