Specimen Collection


Increase Efficiency and Reduce Errors with Identification of Samples

Misidentified samples, create a serious risk to patient safety leading to misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment and wrong site surgery. Give your staff the best tools to make sure specimens are collected accurately. With Zebra's mobile devices and printers, healthcare workers can print labels at the point of care and scan the specimen orders, patients'wristbands and labeled containers for a three-way check. Your staff can be confident the right specimen is collected from the right patient at the right time and placed in the right container. As a result, the right patient receives the right test results - and the right treatment.
