Sample traceability and enhanced security is facilitated with reliable, plug-and-play technology

Adding to a portfolio of new and innovative products developed specifically for biological sample management, WHEATON is pleased to introduce the new SingleScan Bar Code Reader. This is the latest introduction for WHEATON, advancing its charter to design and deliver today’s most innovative solutions for the laboratory research, diagnostic packaging and specialty pharmaceuticals industries.

The WHEATON SingleScan Bar Code Reader was created as a tool to aid researchers in making sample traceability more efficient and accurate. A sophisticated 2D Data Matrix and 1D Linear Bar Code Reader capable of reading coded vials and ampules from a wide range of manufacturers and label printers, the new SingleScan Bar Code Reader offers enhanced reading performance in a compact unit. Researchers simply hold or place the vials, such as our CryoELITE® Cryogenic vials, over the scanning element for rapid reading and precise identification.

The SingleScan features a user-friendly, plug-and-play design that enables an easy set-up with no software installation required, simply plug into the USB port and open the application file. The USB interface allows for an easy connection to any computer and enables multiple user/multiple software applications. Additionally, the inputs decoded bar code ID into any software application where the cursor is placed, making the SingleScan the easiest and most cost effective way to manage and track biological samples.

“We are seeing more and more interest in productivity in laboratories, especially those labs performing biobanking,” says Stephen R. Drozdow, President of WHEATON. “Our approach has always been to make the researcher’s day-to-day tasks easier, and more effective in letting them concentrate on their life’s work,” he added.

The SingleScan Bar Code Reader is another addition to WHEATON BioBanking Solutions™, a comprehensive offering of high quality products and customized services for research that also includes glass or plastic cryogenic containers, biobank storage boxes, and barcoding and scanners.
