Reading 2D-Barcoded Tubes Directly at the Point of Storage or Retrieval
6 Jan 2020
Ziath will be launching its web-based 2D-barcoded tube identification product – Datapaq 5 – at at SLAS 2020 in San Diego, USA, later this month.
Datapaq 5 is the first of a new generation of digital sample management tools being developed by the company to enable sample management technicians to quickly and accurately log sample identity at the point of storage or retrieval.
It will run from any computer on a local network or over the internet (depending on individual lab permissions), using a web-based highly intuitive graphical user interface. Users are provided with visual confirmation of tube identity and individual tube image inspection.
Modern laboratories often store samples in large -80°C freezers, liquid nitrogen tanks or fully automated stores that inconveniently situated in an outbuilding or a basement. Datapaq 5 is designed to provide a convenient way to use a 2D barcoded tube or rack scanner anywhere across a laboratory or an organisation’s site where a suitable laptop or computer is available.
A web-based interface means that the system will run on both Microsoft and Apple operating systems. Web-based software includes features designed to streamline the collection of tube information for subsequent processing in inventory management software, such as Ziath’s popular Samples program.
From launch, Datapaq 5 will be available on Ziath's Mirage, Express and Cube camera-based 2D barcoded. Additionally, Ziath will be debuting an Android app that can run their rack scanners directly from a mobile device directly, in addition to using a web interface.
