Integration with DP5 Software

  • Software designed and written in-house at Azenta
  • Decoding 2D barcodes is achieved using our own algorithm which we specifically developed for ‘tube sized’ codes
  • Not a global, generic “off-the-shelf” algorithm that was designed to read a barcode in a supermarket
  • Displays the results of the scan and can identify the difference between a correctly scanned tube (green), a damaged tube (red) and missing tube (grey)
  • Any tube image can be clicked on and the individual scan is shown (on the right hand side) with the tube location and barcode

Cryoprotection Option

  • The occurrence of condensation whilst scanning 2D datamatrix tubes straight from cryogenic storage is well known
  • Ziath’s Cryoprotection™ is a special proprietary coating that eliminates the condensation and ensures uninterrupted scanning
  • Ziath’s method for eliminating condensation uses no extra electrical components
  • Prevents the scanner window from misting up when a cold rack is scanned
  • Our passive technology does not use heat or blown air
  • No risk of accidentally thawing your samples
  • Increased reliability and insurance that the cost of this option is at acceptable levels
