The Challenge
Safeguarding patient health is
of utmost importance in the
healthcare industry, followed by
adhering to compliance standards.
New government regulations
impose substantial penalties for
non-compliance with patient-safety
mandates.
Keeping instruments, tools and
products that come into contact
with patients clean of any potential
germs, blood or other infectious
liquids is critical. Recommended
industrial cleaners can be harsh.
Healthcare facilities need devices
that can withstand this regular
cleaning so facilities remain
compliant with minimal disruption.
Additionally, power supply units for
medical electrical equipment used
throughout healthcare facilities
must be certified to meet IEC
60601-1 specifications. Complying
with these standards can be
complex and costly.
Zebra GK420 Healthcare Printer
The Solution
Protecting patient safety and
ensuring compliance with standards
just got easier with Zebra’s GK420
Healthcare printers. Part of Zebra’s
healthcare product line, GK420
Healthcare desktop printers are
constructed using durable materials
designed to withstand regular
cleaning with harsh disinfectant
chemicals over their lifetime.
Engineered for years of
performance specifically in
healthcare environments, these
printers come in a colour palette
designed for the industry. And,
GK420 Healthcare printers are
designed with a medicalgrade
power supply that meets IEC
60601-1 standards to further protect
patient and staff safety by reducing
the risk of electrical shock. Now,
healthcare professionals can print
labels and wristbands anywhere in a
healthcare facility.
Ideal for these applications
• Medication identification in the
pharmacy
• Sample processing and slide
labelling in the lab
• Tissue identification and
implant tracking in the surgery
centre
• Blood bank labelling
• Breast milk bank labelling
• Medical records labelling
• Compliance labelling
• Asset identification and tracking

ACHIEVE NEW LEVELS OF
HIGH PERFORMANCE WITH
INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY,
FLEXIBILITY AND IMPROVED ROI.
Easy Integration
Space and Cost Savings
Available in both direct thermal and thermal transfer
models, GK420 Healthcare printers can accommodate
a broad range of applications in a healthcare setting.
Advanced connectivity options include standard Serial/
USB/Parallel communication and optional USB/Ethernet
models, so these printers can be easily integrated into
existing local or networked systems. And, native ZPL®
and EPL™ programming languages ensure GK420
Healthcare printers fit in perfectly with other Zebra
printers.
Easy to use, GK420 Healthcare printers boast the
smallest footprint of any 102mm desktop printer
and the easiest ribbon-loading system available.
ENERGY STAR® 2.0 qualified, these printers also
reduce operational costs.
Reliable Performance
Building on the GK420’s proven reputation for reliable
printing in space-constrained environments, the 4-inch
GK420 Healthcare printers deliver advancements
in healthcare-specific construction and electrical
certifications. Featuring a medical-grade power supply
and constructed with durable, disinfectant-ready
materials in the desired healthcare colour palette,
these printers can withstand regular cleaning with
harsh chemicals over their lifetime to perform
anywhere in the healthcare environment.
Cleaning Made Simple
The following cleaning agent ingredients are safe to use
on GK420 Healthcare printers:
• Isopropyl and Ethyl alcohol (including wipes)
• Ammonium
• Hydrogen peroxide
• Phosphoric acid
• Bleach/sodium hypochlorite
• Mild dish soap
Adherence to Industry Standards
Designed with a medical-grade power supply certified
to IEC 60601-1 standards, GK420 Healthcare printers
protect patient and staff safety by reducing the risk
of electrical shock. And, these printers can produce
labels that meet the Clinical and Laboratory Standards
Institute® (CLSI) harmonisation standard.
Certified for Healthcare Applications
As with all of Zebra’s healthcare solutions, GK420
Healthcare printers are certified and recommended by all
of the leading Electronic Health Records (EHR) providers.
And, these printers are certified to print International
Society of Blood Transfusion (ISBT) 128 blood bag labels.

ZEBRA’S GK420 HEALTHCARE PRINTERS
ARE AVAILABLE IN TWO MODELS:
THERMAL TRANSFER GK420T HEALTHCARE
& DIRECT THERMAL GK420D HEALTHCARE.
DIRECT THERMAL VS. THERMAL TRANSFER:
WHICH MODEL BEST MEETS YOUR NEEDS?
Application
Recommended Print Technology
Laboratory and Surgery
Centre Labelling
Thermal Transfer – Labels on specimens may be subjected to harsh cleaning
products, sterilization or temperature extremes. Thermal transfer printing typically
provides more durable printed output.
Blood and Milk Bank
Labelling
Thermal Transfer – Donated blood and breast milk samples may be subjected to
cleaning agents and temperature extremes. Thermal transfer printing offers a more
durable and longer-lasting printed output.
Medical Records
Labelling
Direct Thermal – Use direct thermal if patient privacy is a concern or the labels
will be used for a shorter period of time. Since Direct Thermal printers don’t use a
ribbon, there is no secondary record of the printed information that would require
careful disposal. For longer lasting labels, thermal transfer may be required.
Prescription Labelling
Direct Thermal – With no secondary record of printed information, Direct Thermal
printing offers added security in safeguarding patient privacy.
Asset Tracking Labelling
Thermal Transfer – Assets may be subject to harsh cleaning products and
identification may be required for several years. Labels printed with Thermal
Transfer technology are more durable.
