Disinfectant-Ready Barcode Scanners
Publish date: 18-05-2020
Patient safety and cleanliness are of the utmost importance to healthcare professionals. At Opticon, it is essential that our products are built to succeed in their area of application. Our disinfectant-ready products are designed specifically as a healthcare solution to ensure a sanitary product without hindering the integrity of the device itself.
Our disinfectant-ready devices have been tested to withstand the harsh cleaning agents commonly used to sterilize products used in the healthcare industry. As wipes and other sanitation products are used frequently on these plastics, our products must be made with a material that will not erode over time after continuously being exposed to these chemicals.
Some barcode scanners are made from amorphous plastics which if exposed to harsh chemicals, will deteriorate over time. Any cracks or erosion on a data collection device can lead to impairment of the scanning capabilities, or in more serious circumstances, electronic malfunctions that could lead to short-circuiting or electronic fires.
