SATO printing solutions…the right medication to the right patient at the right time! 



SATO, a pioneer in the Automatic Identification and Data Collection (AIDC) industry and a
leader in barcode printing, labelling, and EPC/RFID solutions provides solutions to healthcare that are based on absolute positive identification of patients, medications, specimens and samples, treatments, lab results and records. Positive identification protects patient safety and helps avoid medical errors, while increasing hospital’s productivity and reducing their costs. 

SATO printers can print industry-compliant barcode symbologies and formats. They are designed for use in environments that require high standards of hygiene and cleanliness. The SATO labels, ribbons and wristbands are tested to withstand environment challenges: contacts with body fluids, blood, xylene and virtually every kind of chemicals and water as well as extreme cold and heat.
