Measuring just 66 x 53.5 x 51.5 millimetres, Ziath's rugged new tube reader comes with a high-resolution camera with super-fast electronics capable of reading 2D barcodes from any currently available tube on the market including 384-well tubes. The user can simply hold the tube to the scanner window and the code is instantly displayed. The Uno single tube reader also has an optional capability to read Brooks Acoustix™ tubes. The reader can be supplied with or without optional cryoprotection to enable trouble-free scanning of tubes taken straight from cold storage.
The Uno single tube reader will be on public display for the first time on Booth 1632 at the SLAS International Exhibition in Boston, USA (February 5 – 9, 2022)
The USB 3 device acts as a Microsoft Keyboard Wedge and inserts the barcode into any open programme on the desktop. The enhanced drivers allow the Uno to be ready to read immediately with no lag time and even allow adjustment of the camera for changes in contrast between different manufacturers tubes.
