Code Readers

The DR700 and DR710 rack readers can validate 2D Data-Matrix coded tubes. When paired with a matching side barcode reader, 1D rack barcodes can be scanned and validated as well.

Unlike the DR500, the DR505 has a passive anti-frost system that can be used to read frozen racks of tubes.

The DR500 and DR505 rack readers are compatible with 96-well, 48-well, and 24-well format tubes and racks from various brands.

The DR505 has a passive anti-frost system that can read racks of 2D coded tubes straight from the freezer.

The DR500 and DR505 rack readers can validate 2D Data-Matrix coded tubes. When paired with a matching side barcode reader, 1D rack barcodes can be scanned and validated as well.

The DR500 and DR505 rack readers use CIS imaging technology to capture the 2D Data-Matrix codes on sample storage tubes. The DR500/DR505 side barcode reader uses CCD imaging technology to capture 1D rack barcodes.

The DR500 and DR505 can scan a rack of tubes in 5 seconds or a single tube in 2 seconds.

The Micronic full-rack code readers work with the Micronic Code Reader Software.

The DR710 has an active anti-frost system that can eliminate condensation on the scanner plate. The DR700 has a passive anti-frost system that can read frozen tubes more easily.

The DR700 and DR710 rack readers are compatible with 96-well, 48-well, and 24-well format tubes and racks from various brands.

Yes. The DR700 and DR710 can both read and validate frozen racks of tubes.

The DR700 and DR710 rack readers use CCD imaging technology to capture the 2D Data-Matrix codes on the bottom of sample storage tubes. The DR700/DR710 side barcode reader also uses CCD imaging technology to capture 1D rack barcodes.

The DR700 and DR710 can scan a rack of tubes in 7 seconds or a single tube in 2 seconds.

Is there a specific software you need to operate the DR700/DR710?
