SALT LAKE CITY, March 5, 2018

SALT LAKE CITY, March 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Code, a healthcare industry innovator and leader in image-based barcode reading technology, is pleased to announce the launch of their newest barcode reader, the Code Reader™ 1500. The CR1500 is a handheld reader purpose built for healthcare applications – it is compact, rugged, and features a high-performing dual-field imager that can scan any and every barcode.

"We are very excited about our next generation reader," said Hong Ji, Code's Handheld Program Manager. "The imaging performance alone delivers a new level of reading ease to critical barcode applications."

Hospitals and other healthcare environments have the most difficult barcodes to read, in the harshest and most demanding conditions. Scanning of wristbands, medications, IV bags, medical equipment, and many more items needs to work the first time, every time to help deliver the highest quality patient care. The CR1500's patented dual-field optics, lightning fast processor, and zero-miss decoder gives the reader superior performance and the user experience clinicians, nurses and other healthcare providers expect from Code.

Want more?  The CR1500 is built with market-leading, PVC-free, CodeShield® Disinfectant-Ready Plastics that will withstand even the harshest chemicals. This reader was designed with healthcare specific construction and there are no hard-to-disinfect nooks and crannies, enabling more effective pathogen control.

"Code is the leader in healthcare scanning technology, and the CR1500 upholds that legacy," said John Deal, Vice President of Product Strategy for Code. "Our zero-miss decoding capabilities, combined with this reader's durability and outstanding ergonomics, make it the scanner of choice for any healthcare application."
