Hello ArchivesSpace community!

So I know there has been discussion around this topic in the past but we are exploring the different options for implementing bar codes on our collections here and I am wondering if anyone knows of a specific product that would work with ArchivesSpace and allow me to apply a barcode on a folder or box and then scan it with a handheld scanner with ArchivesSpace open to the barcode field of the Instance and have it automatically populate? Anyone know if this is possible? Is anyone doing it and if so, with what type scanners?

Thanks in advance for any guidance the community can provide.
