Optimal Workflow, Cost, and Performance for Your Pharmacy Printing Applications

The CRx printing solution offers pharmacies the ability to save time and costs associated with their prescription fulfillment process.

The CRx printer generates prescription labels fast and saves money on energy and supplies. The simple media path prevents label jams and ensures long-lasting performance. Because the CRx is a thermal printer, no messy or expensive toner is required and it utilizes far less energy than a laser printer, a ratio of 10:1 energy consumption.
