Express 2D Barcode Scanner


The Express Rack Reader is a 2D datamatrix tube scanner with an image capture time of only one second. It also offers easy, out-of-the-box setup and is delivered pre-calibrated so it’s 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. The Express is marginally larger than the SBS rack itself, making it ideal for robotic integration.
