Characterization:

Use with 2D barcoded tubes in SBS format racks

The Perception Industrial Rack Reader can be used with all 2D Data Matrix barcoded tubes in an SBS footprint rack (24, 48, 96 format) including those supplied by Greiner, Matrix, Nunc, Micronic and of course, FluidX tubes.

Completely sealed, ideal for cold storage conditions

The Perception Industrial Rack Reader is contained within a sealed housing which is impervious to water, dust and gases (IP65 rated) and offers reliable decoding at low temperatures (to -40°C).

Fast 2D barcode reading

4 seconds total scan and decode time for a complete rack of 96 tubes!

The Perception Industrial Rack Reader uses eight CCD cameras to achieve an almost instant read.

Easy to use with a wide variety of data capture options

With a simple and intuitive Graphical User Interface, results can be viewed directly or integrated with other applications.

With ODBC connectivity for database integration.

The Perception Industrial Rack Reader can output data to common LIMS compatible files such as text files, CSV files and Excel.

Dependable decoding

The team at FluidX were involved in developing the very first 2D barcoded tubes and readers, today our scanners are the result of more than 15 years of continuous development. We know our stuff!

Automation friendly, easily integrated

The Perception Industrial Rack Reader features TCP/IP Winsock connectivity for remote control of reader functions for integration into robotic/liquid handling work cells.

All FluidX rack readers have a gripper cutout section for easy robotic handling of shallow racks.

Automatic rack orientation

Always the innovators, FluidX were the first to supply a unique 2D Data Matrix barcode identifier on racks to provide automatic rack orientation. All our rack readers are able to read rack and tube 2D barcodes simultaneously so scan and decode time remains low.

“No tube” feature

Able to discriminate between a tube with a barcode that cannot be decoded and a rack position with no tube. The Industrial Rack Reader will not attempt to decode empty tube positions and data files are kept “clean” as wasted data entry is avoided, leading to faster rack reading.

Rack templates

Custom templates can be set up when a specific rack layout is used routinely. E.g. When a row remains empty within a 96 format rack, or control tubes are placed in specific positions on a regular basis.

With integrated linear barcode reader

An integrated USB linear barcode reader provides automatic and simultaneous scanning of rack 1D barcodes.

With integrated Active Cryoprotection® system

The FluidX Active Cryoprotection system really works!

All FluidX Rack Readers fitted with our Active Cryoprotection system achieve 100% decoding after reading more than 40 racks straight from a -20oC freezer!

Available with Contrast Enhancing REMP Lighting System

Makes light work of hard to read, low contrast 2D barcodes.
