Ready for Modern Disinfecting Challenges

Ranging from 3 disinfectants to 20, each level expands the list—offering the broadest range of approved chemicals in the barcode scanning industry. Suitable for anything from healthcare to retail, CodeShield® Plastics withstand disinfection time and time again—without degrading. It’s never been easier to protect your patients and staff (or customers and employees) from COVID-19, C. difficile, MRSA, and other infectious diseases.

CodeShield: Reliably Safe Scanning

Quality products begin with quality materials; that’s why Code has developed CodeShield®, a new standard in infectious disease control for barcode scanners. CodeShield® products are certified by an independent lab—confirming best-in-class performance and longevity.

Commonly used cleaners may contain chemical agents that degrade scanner housings, shorten product lifespans, void warranties, and leave your organization with replacement costs.

CodeShield® Level 1 or 2 readers will withstand the most x03commonly used cleaners and CodeShield® Level 3 expands your options to 20—including the harshest chemical cleaners.

Disinfectant-Ready vs. Antimicrobial Plastics

Plastics injected with antimicrobial additives resist bacteria, but they don’t eliminate the need to clean the device. Cleaning, disinfecting, and removing dust and debris are necessary steps for handling equipment to ensure patient safety. Disinfecting cleaners will degrade plastics that do not have a disinfectant-ready chemical composition.

With CodeShield® and an IP65 rating, Code’s  CR2700 withstands more disinfectants than any other barcode reader. Looking to leverage the mobile power of the iPhone 7/8/SE 2nd Generation? No need to compromise your infection control protocols—the CR7018 mobile case protects your patients and staff (or customers and employees).
