The addition of silver ions embedded within the enclosure plastics offers an ISO022196/JISZ 2801 compliant anti-microbial feature and provides an additional line of defense against the spread of infection. These products are ideal for use in hospitals and other healthcare facilities for applications such as disposables inventory tracking, sterile location inventory tracking, expiration data verification and bedside point-of-care.
The Datalogic Gryphon healthcare series and the RIDA DBT6400 healthcare pocket-sized scanner were on display for demonstration.
