Nothing you can buy off the shelf..
How many do you need?

I've written decode software for the AVR, and Z8, that could easily be
hacked to serial out. In fact, my development version on the AVR already
has serial output, which I did for debugging.

You would need the simplest possible wand, with "light pen" output
(bright/dark).
The chip, and a crystal and pair of caps.

OTOH, HP sells a decoding chip, $40 in large quantities.
