AGFA Drystar 5500 gives you the following benefits:

Improving workflow
With its high throughput of up to 100 14 x 17” sheets/hour, its unique multi-format architecture and sorting per modality function, the DRYSTAR 5500 is a versatile partner capable of handling a diversity of printing tasks from different sources with speed and reliability.

Every pixel tells a story
The Direct Thermal technology employed by the DRYSTAR 5500 is not only fast, clean and environmentally friendly, it is also one of the best ways of translating the high resolution capability of 508 ppi at a spot size of 50µm to a final image. Agfa’s Direct Thermal printing technology performs well beyond current industry standards, ensuring that every pixel in the image is fully software controlled for virtualy flawless and consistent image quality. A significant reduction in wear and tear is due to an equally significant reduction in moving parts as a result of using Direct Thermal technology.

Multi-format and 2 media sizes on-line
Although the DRYSTAR 5500 features multiple format handling, the two most popular media sizes are permanently on-line. This means that the imager is capable of delivering CT, MRI, DSA, digital R&F, CR and DR images at high speed onto two different DRYSTAR DT2 media, sizes (8 x 10” and 14 x 17”), making the final image versatility of this standalone, small footprint unit nothing short of astonishing. And what the DRYSTAR 5500 gains in versatility, the user gains in convenience and time.
