Epson is a committed supplier/partner for healthcare solutions. Product Overview Now pharmacy compounders have a fast, reliable way to produce color-enhanced labels with Epson’s SecurColor inkjet printer. Unlike current cumbersome label printing solutions that use pre-printed labels or blank label sheets, SecurColor’s on-demand color printer allows you to print a wide range of labels on blank stock, avoiding pre-print costs. And because system software can associate proper warnings, the risk of human error is greatly reduced. Color can enhance processes to add clarity to medication dispensing and administration operations by helping prevent drug mix-ups and patients, dosing errors and legibility problems. With SecurColor, you can generate labels systematically from popular software applications, increasing pharmacy labeling efficiency and accuracy with updated warnings, critical alerts and instructions. Because you can print one color label at a time or many labels as needed, pharmacies gain all the benefits of color with the flexibility to support changing medication labeling requirements and volume. SecurColor prints vibrant, smudgeproof text and graphics with qualified label media from 1.2" to 4.4" wide. The SecurColor printer has been approved for USP <797> clean room environments.
