Hudson‘s PA1000 Microplate Barcode Print & Apply is a high performance automated barcode labeling system. It prints multiple format barcode labels on any SBS footprint microplates. The PA1000 prints 1D, 2D and/or human readable text on 1, 2 or all 4 sides of a microplate.
Easy to use software allows for anyone to set up a run. Print 1 plate or a 1000 using the scalable stacker system. The PA1000 is an ideal choice for any budget and space. The PA1000 can be used manually loaded or load the optional stackers and run the system in any number of batches.
The system can be expanded to 15+ stackers holding over 350 microplates with lids or 420 shallow well microplates without lids. Configure the right number of stackers for your needs and budget. Additional stacking options are available allowing for up to 1000 microplates to be processed per run.
The PA1000 is supported with Hudson’s PlateCrane™ robotic arm and SoftLinx™ scheduling software. SoftLinx offers ready to go interfaces to 150+ laboratory instruments allowing the PA1000 to be integrated as the first stop of an automated process.
With the PA1000 and SoftLinx the barcode will be applied as defined in the easy to use software, the initial data recorded, the microplates tracked through the assay process and results delivered with the microplate data. Eliminate the need to manually move the microplates from stacker to stacker or loading a database. Barcode labeling can be done within the work cell process saving time and money.
Already have barcodes on your microplates? Need to replace them with new labels? Need to add human readable text? The PA1000 can read the existing barcodes and print and apply a duplicate or text label on any side of the microplate.
Using 2D barcodes for some applications? The PA1000 can read the existing 1D barcode then print & apply a label with the 2D barcode on another side of the microplate. SoftLinx tracks which side has which barcode.
The PA1000 is as reliable as it is versatile. Print 1000s of labels without incident. Adjust the position of the label on the microplate to meet individual needs. Whether high throughput use or convenient small scale data tracking the PA1000 fits any budget and application.
