Shamrock Scientific Specialty Systems, Inc. has been a leading innovator in labeling for healthcare and research since its inception in 1969. Shamrock pioneered the transition in hospitals from gummed labels to today’s pressure-sensitive labels that require no licking, greatly reducing the danger of spreading infection. Shamrock’s stock printed labels set the standard for hospital and laboratory usage. They are in use throughout today’s healthcare community.

Getting to know the hospital and its personnel and assessing labeling needs to best serve both was Shamrock’s goal in its infancy and continues to motivate our present day service. Putting an “Allergic” label on the chart cover to act as an instant alert to doctors, nurses and technicians, was a welcome innovation. Printing a warning on a label engineered to stay in place on the chart until the patient’s discharge, then allow removal with no messy residue left to clean up, was a labeling break through. Shamrock has been a part of just such innovative labeling solutions in every hospital department.

Keeping pace with modern automation and computer-based information systems, Shamrock now supplies labels in a wide range of sizes, formats, materials and adhesives designed to work with all hospital, pharmacy and laboratory IT software. Shamrock’s current product line features traditional pre-printed instructional and warning labels, bar coded and sequentially numbered labels, blank labels and label/form combinations designed to print on thermal, laser or dot matrix printers.

Shamrock today has expanded its production facilities beyond our headquarters in Bellwood, Illinois, to include satellite plants in O’Fallon, Missouri, and Orange, California. From the initial sales force of three, Shamrock now has over 40 trained label experts in the field, providing on-site assistance to customers from coast to coast and border to border.

Looking to the future, Shamrock continues its close association with medical facilities and patient care givers, working to meet their labeling needs today and to anticipate the labeling needs of tomorrow.
