DataPaq™ software makes it simple to export to Excel, XML, JSON, or directly to a database. Scanned images can also be saved. The cube can be used with the optional Linear Reader to scan barcodes on the side of the rack, allowing hands-free operation with Activator technology.

Reliable scanning 

The occurrence of condensation whilst scanning tubes straight from cryogenic storage is well known. Cryoprotective coating eliminates this occurrence to ensure uninterrupted scanning. The technique is passive so does not add heat or blow warm air onto the rack or scanner. In addition, cube's durable construction has no moving parts for improved reliability and silent operation.
