Microscan Demonstrates New Embedded OEM Solutions for Clinical Lab Automation at AACC Clinical Lab Expo 2014

Dedicated clinical lab automation experts meet visitors of the AACC Clinical Lab Expo 2014 at Microscan booth #2652 to give live demos of ultra-compact barcode readers and machine vision cameras.

Renton, WA July 01, 2014

Microscan, the number-one brand of embedded clinical barcode readers worldwide and leading innovator of machine vision solutions for the life sciences, announces that it will demonstrate new embedded OEM solutions from Booth #2652 at AACC Clinical Lab Expo 2014, July 29-31 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.

Microscan's embedded barcode readers and machine vision inspection cameras are designed to meet the performance, flexibility, and longevity required for clinical instruments and processes. From the world's smallest machine vision smart camera, Vision MINI, to new wireless barcode readers, Microscan offers technologies to meet OEM needs for specimen & reagent identification & tracking, tube cap presence & absence, cap type & color identification, dimensional measurements such as tube height & diameter, automated alignment & robotic guidance, as well as products that enable manufacturers to satisfy FDA UDI compliance requirements for their devices and instruments.

Unveiling at Clinical Lab Expo will be Microscan's new industrial Vision MINI Xi smart camera, the world's smallest fully-integrated smart camera with embedded Ethernet. This ultra-compact inspection system measures in at 1 in (25.4 mm) x 1.8 in (45.7 mm) x 2.1 in (53.3 mm), weighs 3.2 oz (91 g), and is ideally featured for quality assurance or robotic guidance tasks within space-constrained instruments. The Vision MINI Xi features both Ethernet and serial connectivity, a 24-volt interface, and optically isolated I/O, easily networking to systems with high-speed data requirements. Together with the easy-to-use AutoVISION machine vision software, the Vision MINI Xi has a complete toolset for reading barcodes with the flexibility to add additional inspection capabilities to processes within a single hardware device.
