RENTON, WA, July 8, 2013-Microscan announces it will showcase its range of auto ID and machine vision technologies in Booth #5751 at the upcoming 2013 AACC Clinical Lab Expo, July 30 - August 1 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX. As the premier global provider of embedded barcode scanners and imagers for clinical diagnostics and lab automation, Microscan products are specifically engineered to meet the performance, flexibility, and longevity required of the clinical industry.


Microscan offers a broad range of products including laser scanners, 2D imagers, 1D/2D scan engines, handheld readers, and vision smart cameras excelling in applications from basic barcode reading to complex machine vision inspection, identification and measurement. With more than 30 years of proven performance in the life science industry, Microscan remains committed to continuous innovation and development to meet our customers' stringent needs for automated data collection in regulated manufacturing environments.

On display at the Clinical Lab Expo will be Microscan's Vision MINI smart camera, designed to simplify the setup and deployment of machine vision applications. Today's instrument manufacturers require 100% data integrity and extremely reliable components that are small enough fit into their machines. Whether reading test tube carousels or microtiter plates, or any automated drug discovery or laboratory task, manufacturers depend on the highest levels of performance and reading flexibility, with minimal integration effort. The Vision MINI is designed to provide reliable performance in embedded identification and inspection applications. Designed for OEMs, its small form factor (1.80 x 2.10 x 1.00") allows for flexible positioning in tight spaces. The Vision MINI smart camera features a complete vision toolset and integrated lens and lighting, backed Microscan's 30+ years of experience in the clinical diagnostics industry and the assurance of long-term availability and support.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
