Can anyone recommend a suitable barcode scanner that will work with the ThermoFisher Microwriter? I have 5 units that are currently using either a Symbol or a Cognex scanner that do not function appropriately. Requires multiple passes (4-6 if at all) of the 2D labeled cassette in order for the slide to print. Very seldom does it print on the 1st pass. When you are dealing with 500 - 700 cassettes there is no time for multiple passes. I don't know if it is the scanners, software or just settings. I have not had much success from the company regarding updating the scanners to help resolve this issue.
