SafeCode Plates

Product Information

Struggling with documentation of your upscaled sample numbers?

The upscaling from single tubes or vessels towards plates with 96 or even 384 wells facilitates handling and storing of thousands or even millions of samples in the lab. High-throughput screening or storage is becoming more and more important. The same for safe and unique identification of your samples.
For optimized sample identification at the bench, in the automated liquid handling system, or for efficient space usage and safe long-term storage in ULT freezers, the use of barcodes for the identification of plates is recommended. The SafeCode system for Eppendorf Plates is based on a 3-level coding for safe sample identification based on barcodes.
Barcodes are a reliable process for safe sample reading - especially if combined with further documentation around the plate which is available at the Eppendorf dataport.

                Product Information


                Eppendorf Plates with SafeCode take advantage of the 3-level coding of the SafeCode system (datamatrix code, linear barcode, and clear writing/human readable) to enable safe sample identification. The plates range covers PCR, MTP as well as DWP for a broad range of applications. SafeCode plates are your solution for modern high-density sample handling with highest sample safety, management, and tracking needs. The online dataport provides additional information about your sample plate − based on the individual plate code.

                Trying to encode your vessel label?

                "Vessels must be labeled" – something every lab member agrees on. In reality, you always find some vessels in your fridge or freezer without any labeling or with non-readable labeling. Clear labeling is recommended to make reading as easy and as reliable as possible for everyone. Printed labels on vessels in plain writing are the minimum condition for safe reading. Barcoding is one step further towards a fast and safe sample identification.
                A barcode is an optical representation of data which is machine-readable.

                Sample ID needed?

                The Eppendorf Plates provide you easy and fast sample recognition for safe sample ID by 3-level coding:
                • 1D barcode
                • Clear coding
                • 2D datamatrix code with ECC 200 error correction

                The codes are located at three sides of the plate which are:
                • West (linear barcode)
                • South (QR code. linear barcode, human readable code)
                • East (linear barcode)

                Paperwork required?

                For certification purposes, more and more users need to document every piece of information. Plates are a major part of the workflow within the lab. Therefore, further information about the plates like lot number, order number, certificates etc. are available via the Eppendorf website based on the individual plate code. The information can be exported manually into local databases or automatically transferred to the sample management software Eppendorf eLabInventory or eLabJournal.

                Personalized barcodes for plates needed?

                Some processes require customized barcodes on plates due to established workflows and data management steps.
                Eppendorf Plates like the Eppendorf twin.tec® PCR Plates, the Deepwell Plates as well as the Microplates can be labeled with customized 1D barcodes.
                The process is handled by the Eppendorf barcode wizard.

                Annoyed by uncomfortable handling?

                Ergonomics is far beyond the »ergonomically designed chair«. Eppendorf already started to optimize laboratory devices regarding ergonomics in the early 1970s.
                In 2003, we started the PhysioCare Concept, focusing on ergonomic liquid handling devices like our pipettes.
                Nowadays, the Eppendorf PhysioCare Concept has been expanded to include further laboratory products as a holistic solution to harmonize the workflow in your laboratory with your health and well-being. For example, Eppendorf Plates with SafeCode feature:
                • 3-level coding for easy reading, including clear coding for human reading
                • High contrast labeling of wells for comfortable reading

                Lost in samples? Stay organized!

                Over many years, you collect hundreds and thousands of samples – samples that are the results of years of hard work – samples of high value. When storing these, it is vital to keep them safe and accessible.
                Many scientists still use spreadsheets or even paper-based lists to keep track of their storage. While these solutions may work most of the time, they are susceptible to human error, damage, and misplacement. Keep track of your samples with Eppendorf eLabInventory, a sample management software.
