Lancer Labels introduces, Anti-Microbial Labels
Lancer Labels releases New Anti microbial label material
to assist in the fight against hospital acquired infections, such as MRSA and
E-coli type microbes.
What is Antimicrobial?
An Antimicrobial is a substance that kills or inhibits the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, or protozoans, as well as destroying viruses. Anti-microbial drugs either kill microbes (microbicidal) or prevent the growth of microbes (microbistatic). Disinfectants are antimicrobial substances used on non-living objects.
Labels are currently used in many different applications where bacteria can easily contaminate and spread from surface to surface. To address this, we have an innovative anti-microbial label product that can be used normally in all conventional label applications, but with the added benefit that it inhibits the growth and spread of bacteria allowing optimal hygiene conditions to be preserved.
Anti-Microbial labels have a number of applications, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry and health organizations faced with the alarming increase in hospital acquired infections such as MRSA.
Our range of anti microbial labels include active ingredients in the anti-microbial face material that are 99.9% effective in limiting the growth of MRSA, C-Diff, Listeria, E-Coli, Salmonella and a range of other harmful bacteria.
Typical applications of antimicrobial labelling include:
- Packaging used in medical operations
- Pharmaceutical label applications
- Suitable for hospitals, schools, clinics, libraries and catering environments
- Anti-Microbial labels prevent MRSA transfer
- If you would like details of these special anti microbial label products

Antimicrobial Labels for printers
Lancer Labels releases New Antimicrobial label material to assist in the fight against hospital acquired infections, such as MRSA and E-coli type microbes.
Available in three different type of Antimicrobial materials
2/ Satin Gloss 3/ Vellum
All materials are self adhesive and can be used in most manufacturers of Thermal Transfer printers. Labels can be of any size to suit the printer.
Typical laboratory test results are : -
Determination of the Antibacterial Activity against MRSA and E coli using a Test Based on Japanese Industrial Standard JIS Z 2801.
E coli 1.8E+04 < 11.11 = 3.20 = 99.94%
MRSA 2.0E+04 < 11.11 = 3.26 = 99.94%
The above data shows the change in population following contact with the surface of the samples listed for 24 hours
at 35°C under a RH of > 95%. The material uses a silver based biocide against MRSA and E coli
The Unitech MS337H is a rugged handheld scanner designed specifically for healthcare. This CMOS 2D imager scanner is constructed with an antimicrobial enclosure to provide professionals with a barcode scanning solution ideally suited for use at the point of care.
The MS337H increases accuracy and efficiency by reducing the likelihood of human errors from manual entry. Featuring true omni-directional 2D area scanning technology with a high-resolution image sensor and wide-angle lens, the MS337H allows for accurate reading of even partly damaged or curved barcodes - perfect for scanning patient identification bracelets and medication labels having 2D barcodes. This scanning technology reduces the paperwork burden, enabling professionals more time interacting with patients and providing higher-quality care.
