The DT500 tube reader is a versatile, high-speed storage-tube code reader that can read 1D rack barcodes, 1D barcoded tubes, and 2D Data-Matrix coded tubes (in 96-, 48-, and 24-well formats) all in less than a second. The simple-to-use tube reader is a plug-and-play device that requires no software installation. The data can be sent to multiple applications due to its proprietary keyboard wedge functionality. Using the keyboard wedge high-end decoding engine can ensure that the decoding process is highly reliable, thereby producing unmatched data integrity. Designed to increase your productivity, the reader can scan and decode a tube in less than one second. The Micronic Tube Reader DT500 incorporates a unique condensation-free scanner plate, enabling users to read barcodes simply placed above the transparent plate instead of requiring direct contact with the scanner.
