'Code has set the standard by assigning this detailed level of categorization to a healthcare product line,' says Garrett Russell, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing.

Code, an industry leader of image-based barcode reading technology, today announced the release of CodeShield™, its new innovative Level 3 disinfectant-ready healthcare plastic.

Code’s new plastics rating structure gives hospitals precise and meaningful information when selecting a Code barcode reading solution. Now with Levels 1, 2 or CodeShield™ (Level 3) designations, hospitals can quickly assess the type of chemical disinfectant each reader is designed to withstand.

Maintaining infection prevention requires frequent cleaning and disinfecting of devices. Commonly used healthcare disinfectants may contain chemical agents that can damage or breakdown plastic housings, which can shorten product lifespan, void warranties, and leave hospitals with replacement costs.

While each reader in Code’s Level 1 and Level 2 healthcare portfolio feature disinfectant-ready plastics to withstand commonly used cleaners, CodeShield™ provides an additional level of resilience and protection against the most aggressive hospital-grade chemical cleaners and disinfectants necessary to combat pathogens, such as C.difficle and MRSA.

“Code has set the standard by assigning this detailed level of categorization to a healthcare product line,” says Garrett Russell, vice-president of sales and marketing. “CodeShield™ represents our commitment to provide quality products that exceed the demands of our customers.”

With CodeShield™, and an IP65 rating, Code’s CR2600 now tolerates more cleaners and disinfectants than any other healthcare barcode reader on the market. With CodeShield™, the pocket-sized, wireless CR2600 can freely move in and out of patient rooms without affecting infection control protocols.
