Using high-speed, web-based communications protocols – DP5 Network rack decoding software from Ziath can be run from a laptop, desktop, phone, or any other network connected device.

Using DP5 Network labs can plug all their tube rack readers and scanners into their LAN directly and run them from a PC in an office or somewhere else in the building. This flexibility enables labs to have your reader / scanner conveniently near the freezers or compound stores and the results on a computer desktop or phone, the company says.

DP5 Network allows labs to export tube positions and barcodes in myriad formats — JSON, XLS, CSV, Text, PDF, PNG, and Python — and send the data in an email to a colleague or your desktop PC.

While any camera-based reader can be upgraded to run DP5 Standard software, Ziath DataPaq Express and DataPaq Mirage 2D-barcode rack readers can also be currently supplied with LAN adaptors and  RJ45 connectors to run the new DP5 Network software, according to the company.

Ziath specializes in the development of innovative instrumentation and software for sample management using 2D Data Matrix bar-coded tubes. Ziath is part of the Consumables and Instruments division of Azenta Life Sciences and supports customers worldwide.
