Labels: Patient & Pharmacy

For more specific applications, Fairfield have a wide range of label and identification solutions, including general-purpose labels through to durable, chemical-resistant labels for laboratory and cryogenic applications

Identifying patients quickly and effectively is essential in a fast-moving healthcare environment. Fairfield have a number of labelling solutions for patient identification, including records folders which can be printed at either point of admission or at the bedside.

Labels for prescription bottles are printed on thermal printers – a smooth surface is required to accept small text and barcodes, including Datamatrix or QR codes. The printed image needs to withstand constant handling, grease etc. A number of label sizes are available to fit all sizes of bottle.

Prescription Reminder Labels are particularly useful if the patient needs to take multiple medication throughout the day. Labels can be simply printed as shown in the example here or colour-coded for ease of use. Multiple language options are also available, as are a large number of label sizes to suit multiple container sizes.

Patient Bedside Labels are optimized for portable printers for use at the patient’s bedside. Fairfield have a number of label sizes suitable for samples identification or patient record labels. Labels have a smooth paper or polypropylene surface for accurate fine bar code or small text printing for first time reading.

Labels: Laboratory

Fairfield’s Cryogenic Labels withstand temperatures as low as -196ºC for applications such as labelling tissue samples, slides or vials. Label materials will bond to glass or plastic and not become detached during prolonged storage at low temperatures whilst having smooth label faces for printing fine barcodes or text for accurate, first-time read. A number of materials and label sizes are available.

Samples & Specimen labels need to perform in both adhesion to small diameter tubes to prevent “winging” or “butterflying” and also having the ability to receive finely printed bar codes which must read first time, every time. Labels can be supplied with chemical-resistant top-coatings up to Xylene for durable print.

Labels: Sterilisation Indicator

This special ink changes colour to confirm the package or tray and its contents have been autoclaved at the correct temperature, pressure and time.

Labels can be produced to your design in any shape or format and can have additional face or back cuts to enable parts of the label to be removed and applied to forms to record sterilisation process, product information, batch numbers and date for traceability.

Fairfield also have a special colour-changing ink, but this time, options are available for E-Beam (Gamma) or ETO (Ethylene Oxide) sterilisation. You have the option of having the ink printed as a dot or patch onto your existing label design, or we can supply E-beam or ETO indicator dots in rolls for you to apply by hand to your packaging or products, providing total flexibility on options.

Scanners are designed with “disinfectant-ready” surfaces for easy cleaning. For more details of our scanner range, go here or download a copy of our Healthcare brochure here.
