Detection and identification of 1D codes on test tubes

To ensure test tubes are correctly sorted, a sorting machine must quickly and reliably recognize and identify the 1D code on a test tube. In this process, the W4F photoelectric sensor continuously informs the CLV50x fixed mount barcode scanner when the next test tube is to be assigned to the correct patient. The combination of CLV50x and W4F ensures stable reading results, even with poor quality or slightly damaged codes. This allows for test tubes to be reliably assigned to the correct patient.
