cobaco L, Whole rack 2D scanner

Optimal for high-speed identification and management of specimens using 2D tubes.

cobaco L is 2D barcode scanner for freeze box and SBS standard tube rack that is reasonably priced and ideal for sample management. Equipped with a high-resolution CMOS camera, the 2D barcode symbol on the bottom of the tube can be read at high speed on a rack-by-rack basis and the barcode and position information can be converted into data.

  • Fast camera scanning. Complete rack-by-rack identification in just seconds. Compatible with most brands of tubes on the market.
  • It is also possible to scan SBS standard racks using the included adapter.
  • The distance between the camera and the bottom of the rack is far enough to prevent condensation from frozen samples.
  • Simply connect to your PC using USB 2.0. No driver software required.
  • Identification results can be exported in CSV format.
  • The rack ID barcode on the bottom of the tube rack can also be read at the same time while scanning.

  • The one-dimensional barcode on the side of the rack can be identified at the same time using an optional reader (ET-CB1D).
  • There are no driving parts such as motors, so maintenance is free.
  • Collaboration with external software and host systems is also available as standard.
