LaserBand and Samsung Partner
Irvine, CA, AND St. Louis, MO -
Samsung Electronics America, Inc., and LaserBand are partnering to make patient
identification easier than ever for hospitals. The companies have created a
special bundled solution for the healthcare market that includes LaserBand's new
LaserBand2 specialty media and the ML-3561N network-ready laser printer. The
bundled solution is now available to existing VARs.
LaserBand's unique media allows a hospital patient identification band to be printed directly on a laser printer while maintaining the integrity of the image throughout a patient's stay. These wristbands contain crucial information such as name, account numbers, bar codes, and photo. Samsung's ML-3561N laser printer is a 35 page-per-minute network ready monochrome laser printer. The LaserBand / Samsung solution reduces admissions processing time by printing all patient information using a standard Samsung laser printer. Because it uses regular 8-1/2" x 11" format, or other standard sizes, there is no need for a special paper tray to obtain trouble-free sheet feeding.
LaserBand2 is LaserBand's newest self-laminating laser bar code wristband that enhances patient comfort, durability, adjustability, security, and scanning performance. LaserBand2® reduces risk of patient identification errors and is available in variations for different patient populations, including Adult, Pediatric, Baby, and Specialty Needs.
The ML-3561N boasts a 150,000-page monthly duty cycle, 400MHz processor and 32MB of memory (expandable to 288MB) up to 1,200(dpi) resolutions for printing razor-sharp text and graphics, 500-sheet paper cassette and a 100-sheet multipurpose feeder able to handle a variety of paper types and sizes from 3" x 5" index cards to legal documents. A two line LCD screen and eight keys make the printer easy to control, and the unique one-touch Toner Save button extends toner capacity up to 40% when used consistently.
