SmartStation for Cath Labs
The SmartStation is a versatile RFID scanner used by cath labs to quickly read and process small quantities of cath lab devices such as catheters, stents and pacemakers placed in a defined orientation.
This state-of-the-art smart reader is equipped with an individual RFID antenna and can be mounted underneath or placed on top of any desk or shelf surface allowing items labelled with Spacecode RFID /LED tags to be read. It is the ideal solution for fast-tracking the labor-intensive activity catheters, stents and pacemakers by offering rapid and reliable reading of items as they are transferred through various processing steps and personnel.
The SmartStation counts multiple items simultaneously and plays a key role in the prevention of manual errors, stock loss and shortages.
