FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Transferring Data, Not Germs Gryphon I 4400-HC 2D Healthcare Area Imager Bar Code Readers Now Available
Eugene, OR USA - June 07, 2011 – Datalogic Scanning is pleased to announce that the popular Gryphon™ family of bar code readers has been expanded with the announcement of the availability of the Gryphon I 4400-HC 2D (Healthcare) model. The Gryphon HC line featuring "disinfectant-ready enclosures" was first announced in January 2011 with the introduction of the Gryphon I 4100 – HC linear imager readers.
Datalogic Scanning offers a distinct advantage in the fight against transmission of infection through cross-contamination by offering readers with disinfectant-ready housings. These special enclosures, treated with anti-microbial additives, are able to withstand daily cleaning with harsh disinfectants which helps to reduce the spread of germs. Automatic Data Capture (ADC) enables healthcare professionals to collect specific patient information, while reducing the risk of medical errors through bar code reading. Now, the Gryphon I 4400-HC 2D readers, both corded and cordless, couple this disinfectant-ready housing with the ability to read both 1D and 2D bar codes.
“Patient safety remains at the forefront of global healthcare initiatives”, states Giulio Berzuini, General Manager of Handheld Products. “With the addition of the Gryphon I 4400-HC 2D readers, we are expanding our offerings in support of these important initiatives”.
The Gryphon I 4400-HC 2D readers are area imagers that are capable of reading both 1D codes and various 2D codes such as PDF-417, Data Matrix, Aztec and QR code. Datalogic's patented "Green Spot" is featured in both the GD4400-HC 2D corded reader (buy here from Legacy Technology Services) and the GBT4400-HC 2D cordless reader (buy here from Legacy). This feature ensures good-read feedback even when an audible beep is not a viable option for confirmation. The readers are able to be programmed to utilize the Green Spot feature in implementing the Datalogic "Perfect Match" data verification tool. This program helps decrease medical errors by matching the patient with their correct medication. Both models share the same feature-rich offerings as the standard GD4400 2D reader and GBT4400 2D reader, including an IP52 environmental rating, Motionix™ motion sensing technology, image capture, non-irritating deep-red illumination, and a highly visible 4-Dot aimer with a center cross for target aiming.
The cordless GBT4400-HC 2D reader utilizes Bluetooth® wireless technology with a reading range up to 30m / 98ft, batch mode capability of >1200 codes stored in memory, and Datalogic's patented 2-position "Scan-While-Charging" cradle. The Gryphon GM4400-HC cordless (buy here from Legacy) models, offering the choice of using 433MHz or 910MHz narrow band radios with Datalogic's STAR Cordless System™ technology will be available by the close of 2011. Whether employed in the laboratory, pharmacy, business office or patient bedside, the Gryphon HC readers answer present and future healthcare needs.
