    Home About Us

    TWD, based in Pleasant Prairie, WI was founded in 1997 as a supplier of unique laboratory products, pre-barcoded labware utilizing specialized permanent sample ID technology, and custom on-demand sample ID services and equipment. We provide our services to Fortune 500 companies in the pharmaceutical, clinical, chemical, food products and related industries. TWD is committed to providing outstanding customer service and dedicated to fulfilling the demanding needs of laboratory professionals.

    A partial list of TWD's products and services include:

    LABWARE WITH PERMANENT SAMPLE ID (PSID)

    TWD TradeWinds' permanent barcode or other identification markings are suitable for virtually any glass or plastic labware and can withstand the harshest laboratory conditions where traditional adhesive labels fail. For example, when applied to our high recovery vials, PSID's provide an easily automated solution for long-term compound storage with no weight change.

    DATA MANAGEMENT

    TWD utilizes a centralized barcode database to check produced barcodes for duplications or illegal characters across multiple customer sites. We use a constantly evolving software suite to better protect your data. We also monitor how much labware inventory each customer has, and send notifications when stock is running low.
