C# Barcode SDK: Scan, Read, and Generate Barcodes

Read and generate all major 1D and 2D barcodes in your application using C#. Developed using fuzzy logic and AI, our barcode-reading engine instantly recognizes and extracts information from multiple barcodes. It improves detection of blurred or damaged barcodes by leveraging an error correcting code algorithm and with preprocessing features (auto deskew, noise removal, and more). Explore our guides and code samples to learn how you can quickly integrate barcode reading and generation into your workflows.

PSPDFKit SDKs are deployed in some of the world’s most popular applications, such as those made by Autodesk, Disney, DocuSign, Dropbox, IBM, and Lufthansa.

Key Capabilities

  • Fast and accurate — AI-powered barcode engine with 15+ years of continuous improvements
