Print clear and accurate tube labels on demand with the portable Brother Rugged Jet 4.
Brother Mobile Solutions (BMS) today announced the availability of its print and label solutions in North America to the public in a sanitary environment. These rapidly deployable solutions are used in a range of health applications, from tube labeling at mobile COVID-19 test sites, to vaccine receipts, and contact-free temperature testing solutions designed to help ensure access to medical facilities, government offices, retail stores or the safety of persons in other workplaces.
The global pandemic has created a number of challenges for public health, including the need to establish large-scale COVID-19 testing sites and vaccine deployment in a very short period of time. Brother mobile is answering the call by providing rapidly deployable mobile, desktop and industrial printing and labeling solutions, said Ravi Panjwani, vice president of Brother mobile solutions. “These high-demand public health applications require governments, healthcare organizations, laboratories, and even pharmaceutical companies to make informed decisions that include the best technologies, processes, and workflows to get mobile sites up and running quickly
He went on to say that Rother’s range of printing and labelling solutions play a key role in addressing these pandemic-related challenges, and the rapid deployment of printing and labelling can help improve patient and clinician safety , testing accuracy, tracking patient information, cold chain documentation, and integration with core health systems
Today’s demand for testing or vaccine solutions traditionally located within hospitals or laboratories does not easily extend to mobile environments beyond the four walls of a medical facility. However, large-scale mHealth rollouts now require rapidly deployable solutions to print labels, barcodes, receipts or tickets—on-demand and in real-time. Brother’s line of standalone mobile, desktop and industrial printers are ideally suited for remote and mobile application needs due to their top-of-the-line connectivity, integration, internal database capabilities, and durability to operate in virtually any type of environment .
Several real-world use cases highlight the benefits of Brother printing and labeling solutions in the fight against the pandemic:
Rapid Deployment of Vaccination Receipts Holmium To kickstart the rollout of a COVID-19 vaccine, Brother recently partnered with Canadian provincial health authorities to provide a mobile printing solution for vaccinators. The agency is currently deploying hundreds of vaccinations across the province and is issuing three receipts for each vaccinated patient.
Health Canada has selected the Brother RuggedJet 4 Series, which easily prints 4×4-inch receipts via Airprint® and Apple® iPad®. These popular printers print receipts in English and French with details including patient name, location, date of vaccine, type of vaccination and date of second injection. Durable printers can withstand hundreds of prints per day, are easy to set up, and give employees mobile printing flexibility.
Test Tube Labels for COVID-19 Testing Sites Holmium To support testing at remote and pop-up testing sites, Brother’s RuggedJet 2 mobile printer is paired with software and mobile devices from leading lab providers. The ability to print 2-inch tube labels on the side of the car allows testing sites to improve testing accuracy. Brother printing and labeling solutions can help complete large numbers of tests quickly and help increase test throughput. In addition, additional efficiencies are achieved using Brother premium top-coated paper.
Non-Contact Temperature Measurement Stations – As more establishments open and businesses return to work, Brother’s TD 2 series printers play a key role in real-time temperature screening at kiosks. The solution uses advanced analytics to detect and record critical temperature and visitor data, providing contactless fever checks. Brother printers provide on-screen visual evidence to quickly clear personnel entry and display compliant, easy-to-view wearable labels. Innovative contactless solutions are being used to screen people entering health facilities, schools, workplaces and gyms, and to help keep workplaces and people safe.
