Subject: Standardized labelling of experimental materials

We are working with our Chemistry Department to standardize labelling
practices for experimental materials. The biggest challenge we are
finding is trying to fit both chemical identification information and
warning information onto a label small enough to fit onto
experimental vials (we are advised that 1 by 2 inches is an
appropriate size). We need some way of indicating the identity of the
material, its age, the responsible investigator, and adequate warning
information for emergency response and regulatory compliance purposes.

I wonder if anyone has already developed something that serves this
purpose and could share a graphic representation of what works.

Thanks for any help.
