Handheld barcode scanners are the equipment of choice when using barcodes with TrialDirector. The handheld type of barcode scanners use a grip and trigger mechanism. Nearly any handheld barcode scanner will work with TrialDirector, although there are only a few basic requirements:

 

1) Must be able to read "Code 128"

 

2) Must be able to read "Code 3 of 9" or "Code 3-9" or "Code 39"

 

3) Must be able to add a Carriage Return suffix (CR Suffix) command

 

There are quite literally hundreds of handheld barcode scanners available on the market, and we have had clients report back to us with great success stories using many different brands and types (wired, wireless (both Bluetooth and RF).

 

​Lastly, we do not recommend bar code scanning "wand" or "pen" type of scanners. They're a little inconsistent, and frequently require a specific angle for correct reading, which is in our opinion too much to have to think about in trial.
