The SampleScan Mini is a “small footprint / high speed” barcode reader for 2D marked sample tubes stored in tube racks. The SampleScan Mini scans a tube rack and outputs barcode data file within 4-6 seconds. The scanner’s adjustable output file includes: 2D tube barcode, tube position, and rack ID data.
Other key features include customizable output file fields and the option to scan a single tube. An optional linear barcode reader to automatically scan the 1D rack barcode is also available in the SampleScan Mini Automated model.
The SampleScan Mini works with a range of 2D microtubes and 2D cryotubes offered by variety of labware vendors such as:
Supported tube rack formats include the popular 96 tube racks and also 48, 24, 12, or other capacity tube racks. The 384 tube rack format is supported for specific 2D labware. Template scanning feature allows for use with high-density tube racks with offset rows and columns.
The SampleScan Mini includes BioMicroLab’s SampleScan 2D software. This easy to use Window’s application provides point and click control of the scanner. It provides an on-screen display of the barcode image with colorful visual scan status for quick confirmation of the scanning process. Barcodes are also displayed on the screen so the user can quickly evaluate any non-readable barcodes.
