Micronic DR500 Rack Reader

Price on request

Efficiently track your samples

Read tube and rack codes instantly

The new Micronic Rack Reader DR500 is optimized to rapidly and accurately identify a full rack of 2D coded tubes in just 5 seconds. With the new Micronic Code Reader Software, the DR500 gives reliable code readings and can be smoothly integrated into any laboratory sample database.

Unlike the Micronic DR500, the Micronic DR505 and Tracxer RD235 scanners are designed with an anti-frost system that can read racks filled with 2D barcoded tubes straight from the freezer. The anti-frost system minimizes condensation on the scanning surface, giving each scanner the ability to read all tube codes, even the ones on frozen samples.
