cab's AXON 1 has been designed for direct thermal and thermal transfer label printing. 3 dpi or 6 dpi print resolutions favor sharp-edge and high-contrast print images. The smallest codes and fonts can be verified reliably. The AXON 1 labeling cycle takes less than two seconds. Tubes and vials with or without a closure cap can be inserted by hand or automated by a handling system. RS232, USB, Ethernet, WLAN and Bluetooth ensure data be transferred. AXON integrates to Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS).
