With the optional added 1D Side Barcode Reader, the 1D Rack Barcode can be read simultaneously in just 1 second. The Rack Reader DR900 works with the easy to install Micronic Code Reader Software which gives reliable code readings and can be smoothly integrated into any laboratory sample database.

Our solutions

Micronic Code Reader Software

The comprehensive Micronic Code Reader Software is fully compatible with all Micronic Rack Readers. The user friendly software is easy to use, gives reliable code readings and can be easily integrated into any laboratory sample database.

Developed on the basis of extensive user feedback, the Micronic Code Reader Software features an automatic re-read function that ensures all the codes in a rack are deciphered quickly. The re-read function reduces downtime in automated workflows. After a rack is scanned, each cell contains a high-quality image of the code and tube ID, as well as a ‘no tube, no code’ feature if a tube cannot be found. Additional useful features include optimal speed for coding and decoding, adjustment controls for brightness, contrast and threshold to optimize tube code display, flexible order of the export fields, software upgrades without losing settings and an enhanced LIMS interface. Furthermore, the Code Reader Software features an automatic code polarity recognition function, which allows users to scan white on black code surfaces and black on white code surfaces. This feature enables users to read 2D codes from black and white surfaces without changing settings. All features in the new software are included as standard at no extra cost with free upgrades and technical support.

What our customers say

“We chose Micronic because of their compatibility with liquid handling robotics, validated ultra-low binding tube properties, highly satisfying split push cap sealing performance, and the assured traceability that their laser etched 1D barcoded rack and 2D coded tubes provide."

“After a comprehensive evaluation of commercially available consumables we selected Micronic 0.75ml and 1.4ml tubes together with screw caps and Roborack storage racks to provide high integrity, long-term storage of our human blood, serum and plasma samples at –80°C."

Read full testimonial

"We use the Micronic sample storage products because the individual barcoded tubes allows us to easily swap tubes from plate to plate. As we have over 70,000 DNA samples, it is preferable to keep a sample in a single tube then split over several plates."
