DataPaq™ Multirack Reader

The Ziath DataPaq™ Multirack Scanner scans 2D datamatrix tubes in SBS and cryoracks format. With the choice of five different masks, nearly any combination of racks is possible and up to four racks can be scanned at the same time.

Easy to Set-Up and Easy to Use

The DataPaq™ Multirack Scanner is easy to set-up, and can be ready to use only a few minutes after taking it out of the box. The Deep Focus arrives fully calibrated and is ready to read all makes of SBS format 2D barcoded racks and tubes. Our DataPaq™ software makes it simple to export data to Excel, XML or text, and scanned images can also be saved.  The Deep Focus Rack Scanner can also be used with our Linear Barcode Reader so the barcode on the side of the rack can be scanned as well as the 2D codes on the tubes.


DataPaq software is ten years in development and is not only an amazing barcode reading tool but also intuitively easy to use

DataPaq™ Software

The DataPaq™ software is designed and written in-house at Ziath. Decoding 2D barcodes is achieved using our own algorithm which we specifically developed for ‘tube sized’ codes It is not a global, generic “off-the-shelf” algorithm that was designed to read a barcode in a supermarket. DataPaq™ displays the results of the scan and can identify the difference between a correctly scanned tube (green), a damaged tube (red) and missing tube (grey). Also, any tube image can be clicked on and the individual scan is shown (on the right hand side) with the tube location and barcode.

Ziath’s Cryoprotection™ reduces condensation caused by cold racks. It uses no heat, no fans and does not add any heat into the rack being scanned.

Cryoprotection™ Option

The formation of condensation on the instrument window whilst scanning tubes straight from cryogenic storage is a well known problem. Ziath’s Cryoprotection™ is a special coating that eliminates the condensation and ensures uninterrupted scanning. Ziath’s method for eliminating condensation uses no extra electrical components, resulting in no risk of accidentally thawing your samples, increased reliability and ensuring that the cost of this option is at acceptable levels.
