John, have your tried pastel colored cassettes?  Scanning works much better
with those.

Subject: [Histonet] barcode scanner for tissue cassette

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.
