Termites (Isoptera) and some other soft insects are usually stored in=20
70%, 80% or nearly 100% alcohol in biological collections.

There are several manners to give written labels to the samples:
One may write with ink or a pencil on different kind of papers.
There exists also the recommendation to use a laser printer to generate
the labels.=20
All these methods may lead to some problems on the long run.

I wonder wether there are some electronic methods to "back up" the
written labels.
Electronic labelling may allow as well direct processing of the label
information with data administrating software systems.

Thank you very much for suggestions or hints
