LabCollector offers various set-up options. It is ready-to-use (insofar as is possible), its configuration can be easily managed by the super-admin in order to meet your specific laboratory requirements. In the following Knowledge Base, we will show you how to set up your printers and labels.

To do so, simply go to ADMIN -> OTHER -> SETUP -> Printers & Labels:

    • A : Dymo printers:
      • The labels with DYMO printers have various templates that are available for you to print.
      • See this KnowledgeBase for a step-by-step guide on customizing a template.
    • B : Network Label Printers:
      • LabCollector is capable of printing barcode labels easily using network label printers.
      • You can define printers with EPL and JSCRIPT language like Zebra, Brady or CAB and label roll types and also the printer resolution that you want.
        * Check this KnowledgeBase to see more about how to set printers.
    • C : Label Roll types:
      • To add a label roll type, you have to fill out the form with the required information: roll name and label size (use the size format indicated).
        * Check this KnowledgeBase to see more about how to set labels.
      • If you want to define this roll type as a default you need to check the default box. (It will appear after you have saved the roll type)

      • You can indicate that a label roll has 2 columns with the W2 parameter (width 2).
        • A positive size will be considered as a left position and a negative will indicate a right position.
        • W2 size will add to W width of the main label.
        • Parameters:
              Size format: W:nn/H:nn/LM:nn/G:nn
              (W: label Width, H: Label Height, LM: Left Margin, G: vertical Gap [optional: W2: second label/column from left (-N) or right (+N) border] N is a number)
              Units: mm (no pixels, no inches). *Always round to lower.
Please take note that when printing your labels, you have the option to select “Switch Columns” for your second label/column. When this box is left unchecked, the second label will automatically be placed on the right side, whereas if it’s checked, it will be positioned on the left side.
