The Tracxer Code Reader RD235 CRYO from Micronic.

Micronic has announced a further addition to its popular ‘blue-white’ Tracxer Code Reader line.

The Tracxer Code Reader RD235 CRYO offers a high-end solution for scanning whole racks with 2D Data-Matrix or TraXis coded tubes.

Featuring a CCD image sensor the new reader provides unmatched high resolution image quality, ensuring the highest accuracy 2D code reading.

The Tracxer Code Reader RD235 CRYO features an anti-frost system which minimizes condensation on the scanner plate. This way, tube codes from even frozen samples can be read, thereby improving productivity and preserving the integrity of users samples.

As with all ‘blue-white’ Tracxer Code Readers, the RD235 CRYO is very easy to use. Just a couple of mouse clicks using the highly intuitive Tracxer Code Reader software allows users to scan a complete rack of 2D coded tubes in 7 seconds and a single tube in less than 2 seconds.

Using the Tracxer Code Reader RD235 CRYO in conjunction with a Tracxer 1D Rack Barcode Reader BC235 accessory the software allows users to read the 1D rack barcodes and 2D tube codes together.

The Tracxer Code Reader RD235 CRYO provides a complete tube code reading solution for users laboratory whether they use 2D Data Matrix, TraXis or competitive brand 2D-coded tubes to store their samples.

The reader is fully compatible with all ANSI / SLAS standard storage racks, which enables the reading of 12-, 24-, 48-, 96- and even 384-well formats.

Due to its compact size - the Micronic Tracxer Code Reader RD235 CRYO is easily integrated into robotic liquid handling and storage systems. It is simple and high performance scanning at its best.
