- User states (glossary)
Microscope slides have labels. In many instances, these slides have barcodes printed on them. In complex scenarios, a single label can even have multiple barcodes.
These barcodes are available in several different industry-standard formats.
Through the technique of Optical Character Recognition (OCR), many times it is possible for computer software to automatically recognize a barcode and reverse engineer it back to its original textual representation (which can then be a LIMS Accession ID or other internal identifier).
PMA.core uses two open source libraries to try to interpret printed-on barcodes as good as it can.
The following formats are supported by ZXing (check the website for latest updates):
|1D product||1D industrial||2D|
|UPC-A||Code 39||QR Code|
|UPC-E||Code 93||Data Matrix|
|UPC/EAN Extension 2/5||ITF||MaxiCode|
