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.
