Popular 2D Rack Scanner Now Offers Brooks Acoustix Tube Reading

Ziath Ltd. has announced its compact DataPaq Mirage CMOS-camera based 2D tube rack scanner can now read Brooks Acoustix tubes in addition to all popular makes of coded tubes in ANSI/SLAS format racks.

Economically priced to suit most budgets, the DataPaq Mirage has been designed as a faster, more productive camera-based replacement for a flatbed scanner. Its low profile and ability to scan all current, commonly used ANSI/SLAS format racks enables it to be simply integrated with liquid handling platforms and other automation systems.

The DataPaq Mirage 2D scanner offers easy, out-of-the-box set up and is delivered pre-calibrated and ready to scan. Benefiting from unique, patented illumination, scanning and decode technology the DataPaq Mirage can, error-free, decode a complete 96 well rack in just 2-3 seconds.

Steve Knight, Commercial Director at Ziath commented "Our new optional upgrade allows the Mirage to quickly and successfully decode the latest split-code Brooks AcoustixTM tubes, without the need to cover the racks, in less than 5 seconds and with full empty-well detection”.
