Easy to use, and integration-friendly single tube or whole rack scanning

The BioMicroLab SampleScan Mini is compatible with a range of 2D microtubes and cryotubes and scans a 96-format rack in 4-5 seconds. Its adjustable output file includes 2D tube barcodes, tube positions, and rack ID data for output to LIMS or other systems, and researchers benefit from the ability to scan single tubes as well as full racks.

Efficiently captures Rack ID
Efficiently captures Rack ID

2D embedded barcodes on the base of racks are automatically captured, and with an optional 1D linear barcode reader that attaches to any side of the instrument, the 1D rack ID is scanned and decoded.

Compact footprint without compromising capabilities

The compact footprint makes the device suitable even for crowded environments, and enables efficient laboratory layout.

Scan single tubes or full racks
Scan single tubes or full racks

Scan a rack or simply hover a single tube over the scanner to decode a single tube.  For single tubes, the single tube scan feature sends the decoded barcode directly to any open application, while user-friendly software is used for full rack scanning.

BioMicroLab’s SampleScan Software captures the 2D barcode image, decodes the barcode, and outputs the data in a user configurable .csv (excel-like) file format for easy integration with your sample database system.

Reliable, easy to use scanning systems

The BioMicroLab SampleScan full rack and single tube barcode scanners are easy-to-use, reliable, and integrate well with other systems.

BioMicroLab’s user-friendly SampleScan instruments scan, decode and output the unique ID number encoded in the two-dimensional barcode on the bottom of the sample tubes and the one-dimensional barcode on the side of the rack. The SampleScan Software captures the 2D barcode image, decodes the barcode(s), and outputs the data in a user configurable .csv (excel-like) file format for easy use with your sample database system.

This easy-to-use Windows based application provides point-and-click control of the scanner and an on-screen display of the barcode image with colorful visual scan status for quick confirmation of the scanning process. Barcodes are also displayed on the screen so the user can quickly evaluate any non-decodable barcodes.
