BioRead – S2 Single Tube Scanner


Our Single-Tube Scanner, like all of our scanners, offers easy set up, straight out of the box – along with just the kind of portability some lab work requires. With only a few minutes needed for the installation of our DataPaq™ software, you will be ready to start scanning in no time at all. The BioRead Single-Tube Scanner scans individual tubes from Matrix, Nunc, Abgene, Micronic, Greiner, Wheaton and all other tube manufacturers.

Specifications and Features

  • Instant scan for any size or brand of tube
  • Export data to Excel, LIMS, text, tube image

The S2 scanner is also available with cryoprotective proofing, to avoid condensation build-up within the scanner. 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

Easy Set Up

The BioRead-S2 offers easy set-up, straight out of the box, with only a few minutes for configuration. After a one-time automatic calibration, the scanner is ready to read. DataPaq™ software makes it simple to export to Excel, XML or text and scanned images can also be saved. The large scan window makes it easy to present the tubes, even when wearing cryoprotective clothing and the weighted scanner base makes it a stable unit. No independent power supply is required as the scanner connects to the computer by USB cable and also draws its power from this source.
