Pharmacies typically have small checkout counters with limited space. Here it is important to provide maximum security and performance when scanning items. Customers are just as likely to purchase a candy bar as they are to pick up expensive prescription drugs. Bar code scanners from Datalogic help pharmacies operate efficiently and adhere to the latest regulatory requirements for drug safety and authenticity. Many of the scanners manufactured by Datalogic for healthcare use are manufactured with disinfectant ready, anti-microbial materials. These devices are specifically for healthcare applications where harsh disinfecting solutions can damage plastics and where protection against infection is crucial.
