FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Protect Your Patients, Protect Yourself Introducing the Gryphon ‘Disinfectant-Ready’ Bar Code Readers for Healthcare
Eugene, OR USA – January 28, 2011 – Datalogic is pleased to announce the Gryphon™ 4000 series of bar code readers has been expanded with the introduction of the new Gryphon™ 4000-HC (healthcare) models. The Gryphon HC series offers both corded (Gryphon GD4100-HC - buy here from Legacy Technology Services) and cordless (Gryphon GBT4100-HC - buy here from Legacy and Gryphon GM4100-HC - buy here from Legacy) linear imagers, targeting the healthcare industry and other bacteria-sensitive environments with special ‘disinfectant-ready’ enclosures and patient features.
As global healthcare initiatives continue to push organizations towards automatic data capture, the Gryphon HC bar code readers offer additional value with new disinfectant-ready enclosures featuring silver ion-based antimicrobial additives. Coupled with industry leading sealing ratings, these special enclosures withstand daily cleaning with harsh disinfectant solutions, which helps reduce the spread of germs. The strength of these enclosures expands the life of the product, improves scanning performance and most importantly, secures a patient’s right to obtain quick and accurate data regarding medical treatments.
“We are excited to offer a solution advancing patient safety twofold: first with automatic data capture to improve patient care and reduce medical errors and now with a bar code reader that can be safely cleaned,” stated Bill Parnell, President and CEO, Datalogic Scanning. “The Gryphon HC series will not only protect patients and employees, but also healthcare technology investments with years of reliable performance.”
The cordless and corded models of the Gryphon HC series allow healthcare organizations to choose a bar code scanning solution aligned with their mobility needs. For the most freedom, the Gryphon HC series offers a choice of radios with Datalogic’s STAR Cordless System™ narrow-band radio or Bluetooth® Wireless Technology. These radio systems provide bidirectional communication for medical staff to interact in real-time with the host system as well as an optional display screen for optimal communication.
Choosing the Gryphon HC series allows healthcare organizations to take advantage of patient-oriented features like Datalogic’s patented ‘Green Spot’ technology. This technology provides operators with additional good-read feedback, allowing the reader to be silenced when working with sleeping patients. The Green Spot can also be used to positively match patients with their medication to prevent medical errors at the bedside.
From bedside patient care to the laboratory, the Gryphon HC readers provide today’s standard and future scanning capabilities with linear 1D decoding, and in the near future, 2D bar code scanning. The addition of the disinfectant-ready enclosures combined with the patient-oriented features of the Gryphon 4000 series make Gryphon HC bar code readers the ideal solution for many environments in the healthcare industry.
