Eliminate label misreads
with the ColorWorks System

The ColorWorks inkjet print system is a reliable way to print color-on-demand labels for unit doses, syringes and IV bags.  Printing vibrant easy to distinguish 1.2" to 4.4" color labels on durable, waterproof media can significantly decrease medication errors that occur from misreading information. You can integrate ColorWorks via USB or Ethernet connections

Ken Latta, BS, RPh, a well respected pharmacist at Duke University and Senior Consultant at Health System Consulting Group, LLC, is a strong proponent of using a color convention and has been very successfully doing so.

He notes,
“The ColorWorks on demand color system can provide significant cost savings. Each event in which safety is compromised costs us approximately $5,000. The ColorWorks inkjet printing system is our cost effective solution to this problem.”

• Recall: Standardized color conventions for your labels provides a way for users to quickly identify drugs from each other, decreasing the time it takes to administer to the patient
• Recognition: The drug should be labeled using easily readable color fonts sizes with the name and strength in a prominent location
• Retention: Using a consistent labeling format makes it easy for your client or staff, reduces errors and is beficial for JHACO reporting and to meet safety standards.

Product # SC-INK-1
    The ColorWorks printer was tested extensively to determine the amount of particulate contamination it generated. Results showed the particulates generated did not exceed ISO Class 7 limits which must be fewer than 352,000 particles per cubic meter. This low particle-generating printer helps hospital pharmacies comply with USP 797 standards -- which require that compounded sterile preparations must be formulated inside laminar flow workstations within clean rooms.
Digi-Trax synthetic labels are also manufactured using a synthetic liner and are then rolled onto a plastic core, nearly eliminating any possibility of dust or particulates.
