Zebra DS4308-HC healthcare Scanner

Accurately Capture any barcode


In the mission-critical world of healthcare, caregivers need to be able to accurately capture virtually any barcode, on any medium, in any condition — with first-time every time predictability. And with the DS4308-HC on your workstations-on-wheels and other carts, they can.

The DS4308-HC does it all — 1D or 2D, electronic or printed on paper labels, tiny dense codes on the curved surface of a vial, codes printed on reflective surfaces like IV bags, codes under shrink wrap on doses of medication — and even smudged, scratched or poorly printed barcodes. The result?

The priceless peace of mind that the right patient received the right medication and the right test results, every time.


  • PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology for next generation performance
  • Megapixel sensor and advanced algorithms enable first time capture of any bar code, on any
    medium — in virtually any condition
  • Largest “sweet spot” for can’t-miss point-and-shoot scanning simplicity
  • Withstands constant disinfecting
  • Unsurpassed aiming technology
  • Durable design for superior uptime
