Zebra DS9908 Barcode Scanners for Labs

Versatile Scanning Options for Challenging Lab Barcodes

Many barcodes found in the lab—tiny barcodes on microscope slides, curved barcodes on medication bottles and barcodes on color-coded specimen trays and biopsy cassettes—can be challenging for a general-purpose imager. That's why the DS9908 for Labs is purpose-built for medical labs and pharmacies, offering unparalleled productivity and ease of use.

A one-of-a-kind hybrid design delivers optimum performance and ergonomics, whether workers present a specimen sample to the scanner or pick it up. Switching between hands-free and handheld modes is as quick and easy as picking up or putting down the scanner. The DS9908 automatically adjusts the scan range to meet the application: scan range is limited in presentation mode to prevent unintentional scanning of nearby items and extended in handheld mode to easily reach items on a table or in a cart.

When it comes to scanning performance, users can expect the best. A high density focus easily reads smaller barcodes on microscope slides as well as curved barcodes on medicine bottles and blood vials. White illumination LEDs make it easy to scan barcodes on color-coded specimen trays and biopsy cassettes. The DS9908 combines an 800 MHz microprocessor, high-resolution megapixel sensor and Zebra's exclusive PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology for unparalleled performance on poorly printed, damaged, faded and other challenging barcodes. With the widest field of view in its class, the DS9908 makes hands-free scanning easier than ever. Users also get a wide range of Zebra-only innovations to boost productivity, including Multi-Code Data Formatting (MDF), Intelligent Document Capture and ScanSpeed Analytics.

An RFID model combines barcode scanning and UHF RFID reading/writing in a single platform—providing an ideal solution for tracking serial numbers, expiration dates and other critical data in blood processing. Our complimentary, industry-best tools deliver unrivaled manageability, making it easier than ever to remotely configure scanners, upgrade firmware, format scanned data to fit specific applications and more.
