Microscan Exhibits Clinical Lab Automation Solutions at AACC Clinical Lab Expo 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.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
