Five reasons to invest in the Zebra DS9900 Series for your lab

Purpose-built for medical labs and pharmacies, the DS9900 Series improves workflow efficiency and accuracy. Barcodes found in the lab can often be too advanced for a regular scanner to read, that’s why the DS9900 Series by Zebra is specifically designed for lab environments and pharmacies. This scanner series enables high productivity levels as it is easy to use and can capture small, dense, curved and colour coded barcodes.

Here are 5 of the top reasons why you should invest in the Series:

The DS9900 series has a high density focus which makes it quick and easy to read barcodes - allowing workers to get a first-time, every time capture of the many types of barcodes found in the lab including small, high density, curved and color-coded. White illumination LEDs easily read barcodes on color-coded specimen trays and biopsy cassettes. The series also offers one of the best first pass read rates and excellent performance on damaged, poorly printed and other challenging barcodes.

2. Easy to use

The highly intuitive DS9900 Series enables users of all skill levels to become experts. With an impressively wide field of view, the DS9900 Series requires less precision when positioning items - making hands-free scanning effortless.

With the hands-free mode, the scanner will automatically adjust the scan range so there is no unintentional scanning of items nearby.

3. Long-term reliability

The series provides the day-in, day-out dependable operation that you need in your lab. It is designed to endure intensive everyday use for maximum uptime and a low total cost of ownership. The scanner offers IP52 sealing and elevated electronics to protect against any spills, as well as a 5 ft. drop range to concrete and five-year warranty. With no mechanical components to wear out, you can rely on fail-proof switching between modes throughout the scanner’s lifespan.

4. One platform does all

Looking for a scanning solution which evolves with your operations? The DS9900 Series is your answer as thee series supports a wide range of value-added features such as, Multi-Code Data Formatting, Intelligent Document Capture and Driver’s License parsing to increase efficiencies and lessen the chances of human error.
