The WhiteReader® is a DataMatrix code reader, specifically designed to read engraved codes on surgical instruments, as part of sterilization in hospitals. The design enables the user to keep hands free and better organize the work surface, thanks to an automatic reading trigger. The three lighting colors enable users to read any DataMatrix code instantly, regardless of the material or the engraving process used (laser, indent dot marking, Infodot). Proper lighting markedly improves camera reading productivity. A clearer view enables faster code-reading in the sterilization process and makes it easier to reassemble surgical sets.
