  • Designed and developed entirely with the end user in mind, the FluidX Impression™ offers fast identification of SBS-format racked, 2D-coded sample storage tubes, without the need to remove tubes from racks
  • Impression™ systems offer the very best optical quality barcode scanning for 2D and 1D barcoded tubes within a rapid whole-rack scanner format with a small footprint
  • Impression™ is based on scanning technology and forms the backbone of many sample storage and tracking systems, for applications including biobanks, compound libraries and other high-throughput storage environments
  • Impression™ is supplied with a 5-year warranty
Key Features

Compatibility

  • Compatible with all FluidX 2D data matrix coded tubes, as well as with tubes supplied by other manufacturers
  • Suitable for use with 24, 48, 96, 240 and 384 SBS-format racks
  • Options available with integrated mirror for 1D barcode reading

Integration friendly

  • Solution for rapid reading and integration
  • Optional Opticon linear barcode reader decodes more challenging linear barcodes, simplifying robotic integration

“No tube” feature for error elimination

  • Able to discriminate between a tube with a code that cannot be decoded, and an empty rack position
  • Will not decode empty tube positions, so data files are kept clean
  • Decoding speed is optimized as wasted data entry is eliminated

Active cryo-protection

  • Options with internal system that reduces the impact of condensation
  • Increases the number of consecutive -20°C racks readable whilst having minimal impact on the sample temperature
