SampleScan 96 2D Barcode Readers

Best Entry-Level, General Purpose 2D Barcode Readers

2D Barcode Reader2D marked sample tubes feature a 2D grid barcode located on the bottom of the tube. This provides a unique ID number for each sample tube. The SampleScan 96 2D scanner identifies and decodes the 2D mark on the tube, and reports the tube location and rack ID to LIMS systems.
