When they get to the testing lab, they get loaded in sample holders thus: On some of the machines we can pull the tubes up a bit so the barcode's clear to read, but on others you can't We got a monster batch of 100+ MoD samples at work this morning, and on a fair few of them the labels were too far down for the barcode readers to pick them up. Which lead to some decidedly non-GMP jiggerypokery to make them work. Now anticipating piss-taking and abuse, but I did say I'd ask.
