Barcode Scanners For Sorbent Tubes C BCR 01

Barcode scanner

Not to be sold into USA or Canada

Product Code



A barcode reader is especially useful for large-scale monitoring studies and for laboratories with significant tube stock. Tubes can be scanned either:

  • In the autosampler trays before the racks are placed in the instrument
  • On removal of the tubes from the instrument, prior to capping with long-term storage caps

This helps keep track of sorbent packing, number of thermal cycles, sample and analysis information etc.

Where a chain of custody or comprehensive tube history is required, Markes recommends TubeTAG sample tracking, which associates tube and sample information with the tube itself throughout its lifetime, through use of an RFID tag.
