Growing demand for labelling solutions for mobile COVID-19 testing sites, vaccine receipts

March 24, 2021  By Blue Line Staff

Brother Mobile Solutions (BMS) announced significant and growing demand across North America for its printing and labelling solutions in public health settings.

These rapidly-deployable solutions are used in a range of health applications from test tube labelling at mobile COVID-19 testing sites, to vaccine receipts as well as no-contact temperature testing solutions designed to help ensure safety for people visiting healthcare facilities, government offices, retail outlets or other work settings.

“The global pandemic brought many challenges to public health, including the need to establish mass COVID-19 testing sites and vaccine deployment rollouts in a very short timeframe. By providing quickly deployable mobile, desktop and industrial print and labelling solutions, Brother Mobile is answering the call,” said Ravi Panjwani, BMS vice president. “These high-demand public health applications require that government, healthcare agencies, labs and even pharmaceutical firms make informed decisions involving the best technology, processes and workflows to get mobile sites up and running quickly.”

Today’s need for testing or vaccine solutions traditionally located inside of a hospital or lab, do not easily scale to a mobile setting outside the four walls of a healthcare facility. However, the massive mobile healthcare roll-out taking place now requires quickly deployable solutions for printing labels, barcodes, receipts or tickets – on demand and in real time. Brother’s line of stand-alone mobile, desktop and industrial printers are suited to the needs of remote and mobile applications, as they feature top connectivity, integration, internal database capability and the durability to perform in nearly any type of environment. It has been used for quickly-deployable vaccination receipts and printable test tube labels at COVID-19 testing sites,  and no-contact temperature measurement kiosks.

The Canadian health unit selected the Brother RuggedJet 4 series which were easily deployed to print 4×4 inch receipts via Airprint with the Apple iPad. These popular printers print receipts in both English and French with details including patient name, location, date of vaccine, type of vaccine administered and date of the second dosage. The RuggedJet printers can withstand hundreds of prints per day, are easy to set-up and offer mobile printing flexibility for the staff.

In addition to labels for COVID-19 testing tubes and vaccination receipt printing, Brother Mobile’s portfolio of printers are used across healthcare for uses such as patient ID wristbands, patient record labels, specimen collection, laboratory and slide labels and many types of wearable labels. They are also widely used for all types of safety signage across health facilities and the remote printing of documents in home health settings.
