The New USB 3.0 Ultra

The SurgiScan UltraX features the latest technology with an embedded USB 3.0 camera. This allows extremely fast reading of the most difficult codes, even poor contrast marks on instruments that have become discoloured by many sterilizing cycles and often considered “unreadable”.

Reads 1D, 2D & QR Codes

The UltraX reads all barcode types on anything - not just DataMarix codes on surgical instruments! You no longer need a seperate hand-held reader at your workstation to read packing labels etc - The UltraX reads all major 1D linear and 2D barcode symbologies. Simply hold any 1D or 2D barcode anywhere above the reading and the Ultra will read it.
