Designed specifically for the healthcare sector

The healthcare sector is facing some big challenges right now.

Equipping healthcare workers with the kit they need to do their jobs properly and safely is an issue we’re more aware of than ever before. As well as the PPE they need to keep them safe, healthcare workers need the right technology to enable to perform their role efficiently.

Easy to clean

Reducing the spread of viruses and other diseases is at the forefront of our minds. The DS4600 is disinfectant-ready, with a body that can handle regular sanitisation with any popular disinfectant. Every screw and speaker hole is covered, so bacteria can’t build up in tiny crevices.


The DS4600 is full of features for patient safety and comfort. The LED aimed is safe for use around babies and vulnerable patients, yet highly visible, meaning it can be used throughout the hospital as a single solution, instead of switching. Night-mode features allows you to quickly switch from an audible beep to vibration feedback, so as not to disturb patients.

Highly versatile

Accurately and easily capture virtually every barcode type found throughout the healthcare sector, whether that’s in the supply chain, at the pharmacy or in a hospital or other healthcare facility:

  • Scanning an ankle bracelet to confirm a newborn’s identity
  • Tracking specimens in the lab
  • Tracing medications through the supply chain
  • Scanning an IV bag to record time and dosage

Fast & accurate

High compliance standards and the critical requirement for accuracy mean that barcode scanning is an essential factor in many healthcare environments. The DS4600 makes scanning easy: capture multiple barcodes with one press of the trigger, or single out one barcode from a group of many, and instantly capture even the most challenging barcodes.

Scanning specs are unrivalled, with an 800 MHz microprocessor, a high-resolution megapixel sensor and Zebra’s exclusive PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology. Powered by Zebra’s DataCapture DNA (development, management, visibility and productivity tools), the DS4600 enables workers to streamline tasks and get more done each day.
