FluidX ImpressionTM Range of Rack Scanners for 2D barcoded tubes
Based on scanning technology and form the backbone of many sample storage and tracking systems.
Our Impression systems offer the best optical quality within a rapid, small footprint, scanner form.
• Use with 2D barcoded tubes in SBS format racks
• Scan and decode a full rack of 96 tubes in just 8 seconds.
• Wide range of data output options.
• With “no tube’ feature, rack templates and automatic rack orientation.
• Available with Active Cryoprotection® system.
High performance scanner without the frills.
• Active Cryoprotection®
For accurate scanning of multiple racks straight from freezer
Advanced data export options and report design
When used in conjunction with our new IntelliCodeTM software, Impression scanners offer the most
advanced data export options available and link easily to database sample tracking and LIMS systems.
Compatible with MS Word templates with powerful design and formatting capabilities to create
professional customised reports.
Reading rack unique 2D barcode identifier
FluidX racks can be supplied with a unique 2D barcode identifier.
All our rack readers are able to read rack and tube 2D barcodes simultaneously to provide automatic rack
orientation and additional sample security.
“Mirror” linear barcode reader
FluidX rack scanners with an integrated “mirror” linear barcode reader provide automatic and
simultaneous scanning of rack linear barcodes.
Opticon linear barcode reader
The use of an Opticon linear barcode reader simplifies robotic integration and is ideal for decoding more
challenging (non-FluidX) linear barcodes.
Rack profiles save set up time
When a specific rack layout is used routinely a custom rack profile can be set up. E.g. When a row
remains empty within a 96 format rack, or control tubes are placed in specific positions on a regular
Swap between 96 and 48 format racks without making changes
Once rack profiles have been set up (or using the rack profiles provided) our IntelliCode software will
automatically determine which rack type is being used and select the appropriate profile for decoding and
exporting tube data.
Now you can switch between 96 and 48 format racks without making any changes to the reader or
All FluidX rack readers have a gripper cutout section around the scan window to provide easy robotic
handling of shallow racks.
“No tube” feature
FluidX whole rack readers are able to discriminate between a tube with a barcode that cannot be decoded
and an empty rack position. The reader will not attempt to decode empty tube positions and so data files
are kept “clean”.
