    Do you mean a QR code? If so, I would recommend Scan QR code reader.

    Send from my iPad using iPF.net

    Yes, an app could be written to do that.

    It would be much easier to just print barcode labels with your iPad serial numbers on them and stick them on the back of your iPads..

    What kind of help do you want?

    There is no app to do that today.

    You could write one if you have iOS application programming experience.

    You could pay someone else to to it for you. There are lots of companies out there who do custom iPad apps.

    Or you could print labels from your PC and stick them on the units as I suggested.

    What more do you need from this forum's members?

    I suppose you could use a QR (or bar) code creator, then save the results to the lock screen wallpaper. Ugly, but it might scan.

    There are several QR code creation apps in the App Store. I saw few barcode creation apps (searching for 'barcode generator') but none of them had decent reviews.

    There are bound to be more options for a computer.
