Utilising new scanner technology, the Samplescan Mini from Biomicrolab provides a fast method for reading 2D bar-coded labware.
Officially released in May 2009, the company said that its Samplescan Mini has proven to be a popular 2D reader due to its robust design, speed of decoding and ease of use.
The Samplescan Mini is compatible with Matrix, Abgene, Micronic and Nunc 2D bar-coded tubes and vials and decodes one SBS-sized rack in five seconds.
The Samplescan Mini software incorporates advanced decoding methods and filters in order to increase reliable decoding and throughput.
Many labs have integrated the Samplescan Mini onto liquid handlers due to its small size and the availability of Biomicrolab's ActiveX tool kit.
