Wasp Barcode Technologies Launches New Healthcare Barcode Scanner

(PLANO, Texas January 17, 2012) - Wasp Barcode Technologies, a leading provider of small business productivity solutions, announced today the launch of the WWS450H healthcare barcode scanner with base. Designed specifically for the healthcare industry, the scanner features fast, efficient barcode scanning, antimicrobial protection and wireless connectivity. Common uses for the WWS450H include: checking patient and prescription records, scanning medicine packaging or hospital equipment, updating inventories or scanning 2D and postal barcodes in shipping & receiving.

Wasp's WWS450H 2D barcode scanner is designed specifically for healthcare environments, allowing medical staff to treat patients efficiently and without errors. The WWS450H features built-in antimicrobial technology for protection against odor-and-stain causing bacteria and disinfectant-friendly housing to protect the scanner from alcohol cleaning, preventing discoloration, corrosions, and hardware malfunction. Both features further enable the scanner's use in patient rooms, laboratories, and pharmacies.

"Wasp Barcode has a long history of delivering products to help businesses operate more efficiently. Over the years, we've received quite a few requests for a product for the healthcare industry that would increase productivity and safety," said Brian Sutter, director of marketing at Wasp Barcode Technologies. "To answer this demand and best serve the healthcare industry, we created a product that is mobile, durable, affordable and safe to use in sterile environments.
