Laboratory labels are crucial for the success of laboratory efficiency. Specifically, lab labels are first utilized in the different departments. They are used to identify the patient being tested, the test needing to be run with the sample and other pivotal information.
These specimen labels and pathology labels are another example of positive patient identification in relation to samples being used for diagnosis. Once specimens arrive with their respective pathology labels, many times the laboratory staff must utilize a different lab label, microscope slide labels, to continue the chain of positive patient identification.
Lot labels ensure that laboratory staff uses products that have been previously prepared for use.
