Barcode Reader for Single Tubes

Plug and Play Barcode Reader for 1D & 2D Barcodes
Compatible with a wide range of barcode types and powered by USB, the SampleScan™ Plus installs in seconds.
Designed for Ease of Use
The operator hovers a tube over the scanning window, or places it in the single tube holder, and the SampleScan™ Plus sounds a friendly beep and flashes an LED light indicating the scan was successful!
The rugged metal chassis and glass scanning port allow for use in a range of lab environments! And if your tubes are difficult to move, you can pick up the scanner itself and turn it on its side to decode the barcode!
The SampleScan Plus works with all 2D and 1D marked microtubes, cryo tubes, glass tube, racks, well plates, and other labware.
- 2D barcoded sample tubes
- 1D barcodes, such as rack IDs (code formats 128, 39 and others)
- Argos Polarsafe
- Greiner Bio-One
- Thermo Scientific (Matrix, ABgene, Nunc)
No Software Required!
The SampleScan™ Plus connects to your computer via an included USB cable. No software is required to activate the scanner as the device acts as keyboard input and places the scanned barcode into any open application. Any application that accepts keyboard input, such as Excel or database entry forms will operate with the SampleScan™ Plus.
The scanner detects and decodes tubes held above the window vertically or at an angle!
