For #3, we've been using Kimdura piggyback labels which are really easy to remove without ripping the label. I don't know if they will last 10 years, since we've only been using a bar code system for our inventory for 2 years (but they've lasted that long, and they have been chemically resistant in that time as well).

We purchased our labels from Tracking Solutions ( )

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Bar code labels for chemical containers

Does anyone have any specific recommendations for bar code label vendors whose labels:
1. last a long time (around a decade);
2. resist chemical contamination; and
3. are reliably removable from the container when the occasion arises in the lab setting?

Thanks for any leads on this.
