The Biosero 2D barcode scanners are also available with a cryoprotective coating which prevents condensation build-up on the underside of the window. Condensation can prevent the scanner from reading the 2D barcodes properly. Therefore, if you will be regularly scanning tubes straight from the freezer, the cryoprotective proofing could be the solution for you. Our method for eliminating condensation uses a special coating on the scanner window, no extra electrical components are required. This increases reliability and significantly decreases the cost. Additionally, some manufacturers use fans to remove the condensation which could unnecessarily speed up the thaw-rate of the precious samples.
