Mobile printing increases patient safety in bedside specimen collection

Updated: Oct 27, 2020

Bedside specimen collection presents a potential risk to patient safety. Samples can me misidentified or lost. With a mobile printer, the clinician eliminates the problem. Scanning the patient’s barcoded wristband and printing a barcode label at the point of care identifies the sample with the patient.

Choose a mobile printer that is purpose-built for healthcare purposes—like the Zebra QLn220-HC (for 2-inch widths) and QLn320-HC (for 3-inch widths). These thermal printers are encased in wipable plastic that is designed to withstand the constant cleaning with common disinfectants.

Pair the printer with label media that can withstand common conditions in a lab—like extreme temperatures and harsh chemicals. The label will remain scannable, ensuring that it is accurately identified.

The lightweight QLn220-HC and QLn320-HC each weigh less than two pounds. They are compact enough to clip to a belt, tuck in a pocket, or carry on a trolley. Although it’s small, the QLn barcode printer delivers high performance. The high-resolution screen features an easy-to-read display. The mobile barcode label printer connects easily to your wireless network, and can be remotely managed for updates and troubleshooting.

This QLn220-HC and QLn320-HC print labels that meet the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) harmonization requirements. These printers are also certified by all of the leading electronic health record (EHR) providers.
