New Barcoded Latch Rack and Wireless Barcode Reader Improve Sample Tracking
The Thermo Scientific Matrix 2D barcoded tubes in barcoded latch rack and Thermo Scientific VisionMate Wireless barcode reader will both debut at SLAS2016, the annual conference for the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening, within booth 707 at the San Diego Convention Center.
Barcoded tubes and racks – with both 2D and linear barcodes – can now be read with the VisionMate wireless reader. Unlike currently available wireless barcode readers, the unit is designed to lay flat allowing users to set it directly on the benchtop and scan tubes or racks without holding it. For samples that should not be exposed to ambient conditions, the reader can easily be used as a handheld instrument, reading samples while they remain safely in storage. Finally, the VisionMate wireless reader can read tubes in a cold environment, capturing and sending data via Bluetooth to a paired computer.
