An addition to a full lineup of healthcare printers that are disinfectant-ready, the GK420 Healthcare printer joins the recently launched QLn Healthcare Solutions Series and the HC100 wristband printer as part of an ongoing commitment to improve patient safety in healthcare operations.

Whether it's positively identifying patients, specimens, or medications, Zebra's solutions are specifically designed to optimize workflows and improve identification accuracy within healthcare environments.

The GK420 Healthcare printer expands the capabilities of Zebra's existing Mobile Specimen Solution Set, which was developed with insight from healthcare leaders to alleviate operational pain points in healthcare facilities. Designed for use in sterile environments, the GK420TM Healthcare printer can withstand regular cleanings with disinfecting solutions and allows healthcare professionals to label medications and specimens before and during surgery in the operating room, making the process safer and more efficient. Other applications include:

  • Medication identification in the pharmacy

  • Blood bank labeling

  • Asset identification and tracking

The ENERGY STAR certified printer was also designed with a medical-grade power supply certified to IEC 60601-1 standards, protecting patients and staff by reducing the risk of electrical shock and improving printer performance. The printer's small footprint and compact design also allows for fixed location or cart based applications supporting healthcare providers' needs to be more flexible.
