Designed for labs tasked with processing smaller numbers of samples, the DataPaq™ Single-Tube Scanner from Ziath is designed for easy set-up, straight out of the box, with only a few minutes needed to install the application software.

As a camera-based instrument the DataPaq™ Single-Tube Scanner combines high image quality and fast scanning to provide reliable results in seconds. A large scanning window on the device aims to make it easy to present your coded sample tubes, even when wearing cryoprotective or contamination clothing.

The compact instrument is provided already calibrated such that the scanner can read all types of 2D Datamatrix coded tubes. The software offers a keyboard wedge mode which allows decoded data entry directly into the application being used. A single USB connection is all that the Single Tube scanner needs for power and data communication.

Durably constructed, and with a mineral glass window that is resistant to scratching, each DataPaq™ Single-Tube Scanner comes with a no quibble 2-year guarantee.

For labs required to scan tubes straight from cryogenic storage, formation of condensation on the instrument window whilst scanning tubes is a well-known problem. Ziath's Cryoprotection™ is a special coating option for the DataPaq™ Single-Tube Scanner that eliminates the condensation and ensures uninterrupted scanning. Ziath's unique method for eliminating condensation uses no extra electrical components, reducing the risk of accidentally thawing your samples, increased reliability and ensuring that the cost of this option is at acceptable levels.
