Overview

FluidX Perception™ HD LF Whole Rack Reader; with high definition camera for large format and SBS format racks of 2D labelled tubes

  • Given the variety of 2D coded tubes on the market, Perception™ is designed and developed with broad compatibility in mind, reading any 2D coded sample tube currently on the market, not only those supplied by FluidX
  • Designed and developed entirely with the end user in mind, the FluidX Perception™ HD LF offers fast identification of large format and SBS-format racked, 2D-coded sample storage tubes, without the need to remove tubes from racks
  • Using advanced camera-based imaging systems, Perception™ readers are ideal for more challenging applications and environments, such as integrating into robotic systems, cold environments or when speed and size of reader are important
  • Perception™ readers form the backbone of many sample storage and tracking systems, for applications including biobanks, compound libraries and other high-throughput storage environments
  • An integrated multi-position linear barcode reader is available for the simultaneous reading of rack linear 1D barcodes
  • Perception™ is supplied with a 5-year warranty
Key Features

Flexible applications through advanced design

  • Advanced camera-based systems for more challenging applications, such as integration into robotic systems
  • Also ideal for cold store and low temperature environments and where speed and small footprint are important

Automation and robotics friendly

  • A gripper cutout section around the scan window to enable easy robotic handling of shallow racks
  • Small footprint, barely larger than the rack itself, aiding greater compatibility with automated systems including liquid handling

Easy system integration with IntelliCode™ software

  • Used in conjunction with FluidX IntelliCode™ software offer the most advanced data export options available
  • Easy integration with database sample tracking and LIMS systems
  • Compatible with MS Word templates, with powerful design and formatting capabilities to create customized reports

Additional sample security

  • Capable of reading both tube and rack 2D-codes simultaneously, to provide automatic rack orientation and greater sample security
  • FluidX storage tube racks can be supplied with the option of carrying a unique 2D-code identifier

Linear 1D barcode reader (optional)

  • Integrated multi-position 1D linear barcode reader helps to simplify robotic integration
  • Ideal for decoding more challenging (non-FluidX) linear barcodes and provides rack orientation

Stored rack profiles

  • Custom rack profiles can be set up for the regular use of routine, saving set-up time
  • Example: empty rows or control tubes in specific positions

Seamless changing of rack format

  • Using either built-in, or customized rack profiles, IntelliCode™ software will automatically determine which rack type is being read
  • Software will select the appropriate rack profile for decoding and exporting tube data
  • Switch between large format or 24, 48, 96, 240 and 384-format racks without making any changes to Perception™ readers or IntelliCode™ software

“No tube” feature eliminates errors

  • 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
