To print labels using a Zebra© Label Writer, you should first configure a so-called ZPL (Zebra Programming Language) label template for printing samples, sample series, storage units, equipment or compartment barcodes. Open eLabJournal go to Print Label Templates in the Configuration menu and click Add ZPL Label. Note that you should first follow the ZPL label printer installation instructions and activate the ZPL label print option in eLabJournal.

If you do not have the button Add ZPL Label please make sure that you have enabled the ZPL printer in Apps & Connections. After enabling the ZPL Printer please install eLABPrint.
