2D Rack Scanner Now Offers Brooks Acoustix Tube Reading
13 Jun 2019
The DataPaq Mirage CMOS-camera based 2D tube rack scanner from Ziath Ltd. can now read Brooks Acoustix tubes as well as all popular makes of coded tubes in ANSI/SLAS format racks.
The economically priced scanner has been designed as a faster, more productive camera-based replacement for a flatbed scanner. Its low profile and ability to scan all current, commonly used ANSI/SLAS format racks enables it to be simply integrated with liquid handling platforms and other automation systems.
DataPaq Mirage 2D is delivered pre-calibrated and ready to scan. Features include patented illumination, scanning and decode technology for error-free decoding of a complete 96 well rack in just 2-3 seconds.
Steve Knight, Commercial Director at Ziath, said: "Our new optional upgrade allows the Mirage to quickly and successfully decode the latest split-code Brooks Acoustix tubes, without the need to cover the racks, in less than five seconds and with full empty-well detection.”
