FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Datalogic Announces New Healthcare Bar Code Readers at HIMSS11 Orlando, Florida February 10, 2011 – Datalogic Scanning is pleased to announce its attendance at the HIMSS11 Annual Conference and Exhibition. Datalogic will feature a variety of new bar code data capture products, including the recently announced Gryphon™ 4000-HC (Healthcare) series, targeting different healthcare environments and applications at booth #5282. As healthcare initiatives continue to push organizations towards automatic data capture, Datalogic’s new Gryphon 4000-HC series will play an important role. These readers offer added value with special 'disinfectant-ready’ enclosures featuring silver ion-based antimicrobial additives. Coupled with industry leading sealing ratings, the enclosures can withstand daily cleaning with harsh disinfectant solutions that reduce the spread of germs. With an expanded product life and improved performance, Datalogic offers a complete scanning solution with 1D and 2D corded and cordless HC models. This is a product attendees won’t want to miss! “We are excited to present a solution at HIMSS addressing patient care in two ways: first with automatic data capture to improve patient care with reduced medical errors and now with a device that can be safely cleaned,” stated Bill Parnell, President and CEO, Datalogic Scanning. “The Gryphon HC series will enhance healthcare technology investments with years of reliable scanning performance.” For rough and tough material management applications, Datalogic will demonstrate the PowerScan™ PM8500 2D cordless imager, PowerScan™ PD7100 value reader and PowerScan™ PBT8300 scanner featuring Bluetooth® Wireless Technology coming soon. These readers offer organizations extreme protection against accidental liquid spills with an IP65 / IP64 (with display) rating and drop resistance up to 2.0 m / 6.5 ft. Healthcare organizations can be confident that their technology investment is ‘protected’ with these devices. Administrative environments are also taken care of with Datalogic’s bar code readers with imaging technology. The brand new Gryphon™ GBT4400 cordless readers and Magellan™ 1100i on-counter scanners offer the performance users demand to efficiently read 1D and 2D healthcare codes. From signature capture to document scanning, imaging technology enables these devices to quickly and accurately capture important patient data. The QuickScan™ QD2100 series of linear imagers will also be featured as a value option. For data capture applications hospitals can rely on, visit Datalogic Scanning at HIMSS11 (booth #5282).
