  Macromolecular Crystallography (MX) facilities are known for using many samples and require software tools which can scan, store and help to track samples’ Data Matrix codes and to maintain the correct sample processing order. An open source Data Matrix code scanning program, Puck Scanner, developed at Diamond Light Source (DLS) is introduced, its scanning algorithm explained and the continuous visualisation of results presented. Scanned codes are stored together with date, time, and the number of valid codes within a puck. This information is crucial for researchers as it allows them to match the sample with X-ray scanning results. The software is used in Diamond’s XChem laboratory on a day to day basis and has started to be adopted by other facilities.
