Ziath Duo dual capability coded tube reader

Ziath has launched a new dual capability coded tube reader – the Duo.

This affordably priced addition to the Ziath range combines the 2D-barcode reading technology of the Uno single tube reader with the fast, accurate linear barcode reading of the company’s Cyclops adaptor. The new Duo tube reader provides a compact benchtop solution for fast and accurate reading of both code types.

The durably constructed Ziath Duo is a portable reader which can be held and operated in one hand; leaving the other hand free for tube handling.

The Duo tube reader acts like a “keyboard wedge”, inserting the numeric barcode value from the tube it has scanned into any open program on a computer. This tube reader captures and decodes 2D barcodes from the base of tubes in just one second and can read most commercially available tubes with Datamatrix codes on their bases. The additional linear barcode scanner is designed to read linear rack barcodes from the side of whole racks of tubes or the linear code, if present, from the side of an individual tube.

Designed as a single, self-contained device – the Duo dual capability coded tube reader requires just one USB port to connect and power it from a PC.
