SmartBoard for Laboratories
The SmartBoard is a desktop smart reader designed to quickly process, read and ensure efficient track-and-trace management of laboratory specimens. Spacecode RFID with LED tags for “pick to light” are attached to individual items to facilitate instant identification of specific specimens from among hundreds, irrespective of how they are placed on the board, saving precious time on manual searches and protecting from oversights.
This is the ideal solution for fast-tracking inventory management, labor-intensive work of lab specimens and stocktaking. The SmartBoard offers rapid and reliable reading of items as they are transferred through various processes and staff members. It plays a crucial role in preventing manual errors, stock loss and shortages.
