English term or phrase: patient identifiers
Label the two vials with the patient identifiers (i.e. name, initials, etc.)

How would you say "identifiers" in this case?

Thanks!

datos del paciente
Explanation:
Literally "identifier" is "identificador", but we do not say in Spanish "el identificador del paciente" though we can say "la identificación del paciente". However most Spanish speakers would say "los datos del paciente".

etiqueta con los datos del paciente,


Explanation:
Experience: I am a DDS and studied 1 year of maxillofacial surgery (no such sophisticated system in the hospital I was posted in!) however people in the clinical lab would have to write the patients affiliation no. and initials on a piece of white tape on the vials)
