Beaverton, OR (PressExposure) July 16, 2009 -- The DuraLabel LabPRO, a new medical label and sign printer engineered for medical professionals, teaches other medical label printers a lesson in versatility.
Printing on Â½â to 4â width tapes and die cuts at speeds of up to 2â per second, the LabPRO is an innovative medical label and sign printer with the versatility to print both bar codes and pipe markersâand nearly everything in between. It can be used by anyone from a nurse to a facility manager.
âFor medical professionals, the ways in which a LabPRO Medical Label & Sign Printer can be utilized are limitless,â said Daniel Evans, assistant marketing manager at Graphic Products, Inc. âHospitals, laboratories and medical facilities have discovered simplified meaning to identification and inventory with the LabPRO.â
Printing at 300 dots per inch, the DuraLabel LabPRO differentiates itself by bringing clarity to labels and signs that last for years, indoors and outdoors. Though DuraLabel claims versatility as the LabPROâs main platform, it is clear that one of the LabPROâs biggest strengths is its ability to produce readable bar codes.
âTodayâs hospitals and laboratories have found the bar code to be a most efficient method for tracking medical records and medical device labeling,â said Evans. âMedical professionals are discovering the DuraLabel LabPRO is just the medical label printer for bar codes because of its clear, detailed and durable thermal transfer printing.â
While it is popularly known for its medical âbarcodeability,â as Evans sprightly stated, he insists customers remember the printer goes well beyond printing bar codes in its functionality and resourcefulness.
