Get full traceability of your processed samples on flowbot® ONE

Experience the ultimate scanning solution.

Meet ScanID – the ultraefficient scanning device for labs handling barcoded sample tubes.

ScanID’s patent-pending technology offers both 1D and 2D scanning on one device and can scan an entire rack of sample tubes in seconds.

After scanning, the racks can be placed in the flowbot® ONE, which now holds all the sample IDs, for further processing.

This solution will eliminate any critical sample misplacement errors once and for all and ensure full traceability and documentation with minimum effort.

ScanID can scan a wide range of test tubes sizes, ranging from Ø:9mm to Ø:16mm, and fits most SLAS formats.

NOW: As a stand-alone device

scanID can now also be used as a stand-alone device.

The stand-alone device comes with super simple browser-based software, and its Component Editor allows you to easily adjust it to your preferred brand of tubes.

After scanning. you can download the data directly in a JSON-file for a complete overview or further processing in your specific workflow. Any output file format is possible via free online conversion tools.

Facts about lab errors


70% of lab errors occur in the pre-analytical phase.
The average cost for pre-analytical errors per laboratory in the United States is $180,000 annually.
24-30% of laboratory errors influence patient care.
Potential patient harm occurs in 3-12% of these cases.
5th element

There is always a risk of sample switching and misplacement errors during a manual pre-analytical process, and we can see ScanID helping us eliminate that risk.

We believe that our sample tubes are in good hands with ScanID which also acts as an error-control by warning us if two barcodes are similar.

Compatible codes are Code93, Code128, EAN- 5, 8, 13, I25, UPC-A.

Scanning using the LineRack for 1D barcode labelled tubes takes place in less than 5 seconds and less than 10 seconds for bottom labelled data matrix tubes.

We have developed the ScanID to read racks from AltemisLab, Micronic, LVL Technologies, and Azenta Life Sciences. We will optimize for more racks with time.

Yes, all 1D barcoded related data (LineRack ID and Sample IDs) are stored on ScanID. Data from data matrix labelled tubes is stored on flowbot® ONE directly.

Yes, 1D barcode related data can be deleted by removing the power from ScanID.

The LineRack and SLAS Adapter are both dishwasher and UV safe. The Tube Deck is UV resistant, and we recommend cleaning with ethanol or 5% hypochlorite wipes.

Connection is made via ethernet cable (supplied) and ethernet to USB adapter (supplied) connected to the device or service port on flowbot® ONE.

ScanID is validated to be connected and run on up to 2 flowbot® ONE systems.

We recommend the maximum to be 9 using 3 tube decks. This occupies 9 deck positions leaving 3 deck positions for pipette tips and other items.

Yes, we offer both a small and a large bundle together with spare parts if needed.

ScanID can also be connected to the service USB behind the front door.
