Barcode labeling is useful for clinical laboratories in hospitals and other clinical settings including ambulatory care sites, physician groups, and private labs. In addition to being used to identify blood bags and a variety of specimens for testing, they can be used for patient ID wristbands, chart and record ID, pharmacy labels, and more. 

Today’s next-generation patient identification and authentication solutions use on-demand wristband and label printers to ensure optimal accuracy and patient safety at all points of care. These wireless mobile systems enable caregivers to administer care whenever and wherever it is needed throughout the facility.
