DS8100 Features:

Unparalleled performance on virtually every barcode in any condition
Only the DS8100-HC Series combines the power of an 800 MHz microprocessor, a high-resolution megapixel sensor and Zebra’s exclusive PRZM technology.  With this unique combination of hardware and advanced algorithms, the DS8100-HC Series instantly captures the most problematic barcodes found in pharmacies, labs and at the point-of-care—including dense, tiny, curved, poorly printed, shiny, crinkled, faded, distorted, dirty or damaged, as well as electronic barcodes on dimly lit displays.

First-of-its-kind housing offers maximum protection against infections
The DS8100-HC is the only scanner to offer a purpose-built housing specially designed to help prevent the spread of bacteria.  Special plastics allow for safe wipe-downs with the widest selection of the harshest and most aggressive disinfectants used in today’s hospitals.  Also, concealed screw holes and seams eliminate areas where bacteria could hide—even after a wipe down.  The DS8100-HC Series also withstands dirt, moisture, and repeated 6-foot drops to concrete.  Plus, its window is chemically strengthened to be scratch resistant.

Flexible user-selectable feedback
Users can choose from a wide array of easily controllable feedback modes designed for virtually any hospital environment that will instantly notify healthcare workers that a barcode was properly captured—without disturbing patients.  In addition to the standard LED, vibrate and beeper feedback, Zebra’s Direct Decode Indicator flashes illumination onto the barcode to confirm that it has been captured.  With Night Mode, healthcare workers can switch between vibrate and beeper feedback by simply depressing the trigger for a few seconds.

Patient safety guaranteed
The DS8100’s green aiming spot avoids blue wavelengths, which can potentially cause eye injury.

Mobility: Whether it’s roaming the halls, checking patient vitals, or tracking assets through a hospital, mobile and wireless solutions are not hard to find in the healthcare industry. That’s because everyone from the caregivers to the lab team and the pharmacists need a patient’s real-time information in order to do their job efficiently and correctly.

Pharmacy: Pharmacies are the central hub for patients to get their medication. And with such an extensive list of medications being prescribed, it is vital that the processing and exchange process is accurate, 100% of the time. It is vital that the right patient receives the right dose of the right medication administered, and at the right time.
