The single keyboard solution with protected self-label keys replaces the laboratories current dual keyboard workstation arrangement. By doing so it not only saves precious desk space but also makes for a more intuitive workspace as the operator does not have to swap between keyboards

Access-IS custom keyboards have been the de-facto standard in many industries for the past three decades. Their high quality design and manufacture means that they withstand years of non-stop front line use, in fact Sheffield Teaching Hospitals first bought Access-IS keyboards in 2003 so they know first-hand how reliable they are.

Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s largest and busiest NHS foundation trusts providing a full range of hospital and community services for people in Sheffield, as well as specialist care for patients from further afield. The Trust manages five of Yorkshire’s best known teaching hospitals including: Northern General Hospital, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Charles Clifford Dental Hospital, Weston Park Cancer Hospital and Jessop Wing Maternity Hospital

The Access-IS keyboards have increased our results entry speed, reduced input errors and released valuable bench space, it’s a win for us on all counts”.

Ian Holmes, Business Development Manager, Access-IS, said: “We are very pleased to have our keyboards supporting the work that is being undertaken at the Microbiology Laboratory. Our keyboards are manufactured in the UK and are constructed of only the highest quality materials, including Cherry MX Switches and can be designed specifically to suit individual applications”.
