Datalogic Automation 's Matrix 410 image-based ID readers have been chosen by Rotterdam Hospital for the identification and registration of blood bags.
As the labels of vulnerable blood products contain numerous barcodes that range in size from 5 to 18 digits, it was important that the hospital had a system that could read these different barcodes quickly and accurately.
Matrix 410 ID readers are more than capable of this task, providing a single image of all barcodes present on the labels that is then recorded in the laboratory information system.
Efficiency is further improved by the fact that the cameras on these ID readers are OMNI-Directional and able to read damaged barcodes.
Analyst/Application Manager KCL at Ikazia Hospital Rotterdam, Raoul Fallaux, explains that before adopting the Matrix 410, all barcodes at the hospital were scanned separately, and despite accurate work, the risk of errors was high.
"Thanks to the Datalogic Automation camera, registration of all blood products we use for analysis in the laboratory is significantly faster and error-free," he concludes.
