Society is more germ-conscious than ever. It’s a trend to use devices incorporated anti-microbial materials for some specific environments to minimize the risk of spreading infectious micro-organisms and other bacteria. We have listened and understood our clients’ demand for a barcode scanner to work where infection control is critical. The newly developed antimicrobial Zapper Tornado 2D BT HC 2D Bluetooth scanner is built with a disinfectant-ready housing. It is loaded with the features needed for outstanding reading performance and mobility in hygiene-sensitive environments.

Incorporates antimicrobial additives
The housings of the antimicrobial Zapper Tornado 2D BT HC 2D Bluetooth scanner and cradle are infused with a silver inorganic antimicrobial agent which will not wear off during its lifetime. This provides a formidable layer of protection against the multiplication and spread of potentially harmful micro-organisms such as bacteria and microbes on the scanner plastic enclosure surface.

Disinfectant-Ready enclosures
The antimicrobial Zapper Tornado 2D BT HC 2D Bluetooth scanner and cradle are designed with a disinfectant-ready housing, which allows the plastic to be cleaned or wiped-down with commonly-used cleaning solutions in healthcare environments without harming the housing or the sensitive scanning components inside.

Solution for hygiene-sensitive environments
The Zapper Tornado 2D BT HC 2D Bluetooth scanner can serve a wide range of specific applications where hygiene control is paramount and high-level safety is vital, such as healthcare, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food industries, medical laboratories and other sterile environments.
