One of our products on display was the ultra-popular wide format printer TX-2100, that was earlier distributed to around hundred physicians and doctors across Egypt last year with the help of Reap Solutions. Through this printer, our visions has been to ensure that the patient’s journey right from onboarding to diagnosis to actual medi-care remains transparent thereby elevating the level of confidence between the patients and doctors. As the pandemic has taught us, our solutions now need to be quick, safe, easy to decipher, environment-friendly and must allow for distance treatments if needed. With our state-of-the-art printing products, the results can be shared in best quality along with the lowest size on any application, to facilitate diagnosis from distance if needed. This creates a win-win situation for both patients and doctors, allowing convenience whilst ensuring safety,” commented Somesh Adukia, MD – Canon Central and North Africa.

The company executives hinted at geographical expansion as well as product expansion with the aid of doctors and medical fraternity across different locations worldwide. Ahmed El Okr, CEO of Reap Solutions remarked, “Last year has been a banner year for us at Reap Solutions as we have been able to provide radiologists, physicians, doctors and patients with unconventional printing solutions and reports that have proven to be vastly beneficial especially during the pandemic. Our know-how of the industry as well as our distribution landscape across different geographies gave us an upper hand in ensuring the right printing solutions were made available to doctors and healthcare professionals during the testing times of the pandemic. Furthermore, our association with Canon allowed us to explore innovative solutions that give doctors, physicians and medical professionals the opportunity to revert back to the basics i.e. printing on paper yet with the edge of film-like quality. One of the most crucial benefits of the printers was demonstrated in the Chest CT-scans for ribs, as it allows to scan in 3D and print in color, thus highly upgrading the quality to its previous counter-part method of laser printing. The radiology doctors unlike physicians require high printing quality as well as adjustments that can take their diagnostic process up a notch, thus Canon’s imagePROGRAF TX Series printers equipped with a 5-color LUCIA TD Pigment ink system capable of producing fine lines and sharp text, even on non-inkjet coated paper made the right fit for this job.” “Additionally, the reports are now resistant to water, light, tears, rips or any kind of fading thereby allowing for a long-lasting archival system. Our solution breaks the barrier for report archival which can be crucial in significant cost and time savings for medical practitioners. Documentation of medical records is vital to advance diagnosis process, thus having the ability to archive reports for years is now essential. Canon’s blue-film technology incorporated printers come with all these benefits thereby making these products a pre-requisite for optimum healthcare. I am extremely grateful to Canon for supporting Reap Solutions right from the beginning even in the initial trial and testing phases and I am affirmative that together, we will bring a positive wave of change across the medical fraternity.” CUTTING-EDGE SOLUTIONS FOR CHALLENGING TIMES Having received an overwhelming response at the Arab Health Exhibition, Canon and Reap Solutions will continue their partnership and are currently working with doctors, healthcare professionals in a bid to continuously enhance and evolve their solutions to meet the ongoing demands of the industry. Basis the success of Canon’s imagePROGRAF TX-2100 in optimizing the identification and diagnosis process for medical workers and doctors, the company plans to expand its product line that can drive valuable outcomes to positively impact medical professionals in enhancing their patients’ future. Speaking on the matter, Somesh Adukia said, “We appreciate all the efforts done by the Reap team in taking our products to the market, their support has been a key contributor in ensuring that our innovative ideas reach the right minds at the right time. We will continue to work together to introduce new products as well as acquire newer territories that can benefit from these cutting-edge solutions.
