The Deep Focus Single Rack Scanner scans and decodes an SBS-rack of 2D datamatrix tubes in only 10 seconds. It’s ideal for scanning racks that are not located directly on, or close to, the scanning window; the large depth of focus ensures that even tubes that are several millimeters away can be read.


  • Successful scanning in difficult light conditions
  • Capable of scanning all SBS Rack formats
  • Compatible with all 2D Datamatrix tubes
  • Easy to integrate into robotic platforms
  • DataPaq software with free lifetime upgrades
  • Cryoprotection and 1D rack code reading as options

The Deep Focus 2D scanner offers easy, out-of-the-box set up and is delivered pre-calibrated and ready to scan. This instrument can scan all racks in the SBS format, regardless of the configuration or number of tubes, and is supplied with all the features needed for robotic integration.
