Its low profile and ability to scan all current, commonly used ANSI/SLAS format racks enables it to be simply integrated with liquid handling platforms and other automation systems.

The DataPaq™ Mirage 2D scanner offers easy, out-of-the-box set up and is delivered pre-calibrated and ready to scan. Benefiting from unique, patented illumination, scanning, and decode technology the DataPaq™ Mirage can, error-free, decode a complete 96 well rack in just 2two to three seconds.

Steve Knight, commercial director at Ziath commented, "Our new optional upgrade allows the Mirage to quickly and successfully decode the latest split-code Brooks AcoustixTM tubes, without the need to cover the racks, in less than five seconds and with full empty-well detection.”
