Computer Program to Print Adhesive Identification Labels for Research
- Paul S. Graff and
- Billy W. Hipp
Using microcomputers to produce adhesive labels for research samples saves time and effort, and reduced potential for errors in labeling. To our knowledge, no programs written solely for this purpose have been made publicly available for personal computers using MS-DOS.1 Our program produces sequentially incremented labels using “skeletal” information such as study itle/location, list of treatments, number of replications, and material(s) sampled. Templates with this information can be stored and ecalled for individual experiments. Bar codes (UPC, Uniform Code Council, Inc., Dayton, OH, and Code-39 Interface Mechanisms, Inc., ynnwood, WA) with encoded treatment/replication information are optionally printed. The program requires 18SK RAM, a 360K floppy disk rive, a printer, and continuous-form (pin-fed) adhesive labels.
