Bartell upgrades photo developing to Kodak APEX

Upgrade moves from "wet lab" to thermal dry lab technology

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Seattle-based regional retail pharmacy Bartell Drugs has replaced its in-store photo processing lab systems with Kodak Adaptive Picture Exchange, Kodak said.

The upgrade converts Bartell's processing lab systems from silver halide "wet lab" technology to APEX thermal dry labs.

"Meeting customer demand for new and exciting photo products, while achieving speed and efficiency in the fulfillment process is a strategic business initiative for Bartell Drugs," Bartell SVP merchandising Ron Miller said. "Kodak has helped us every step of the way. Our new APEX fleet not only opens the door to a broader and more profitable in-store product portfolio; it proceeds the pathway for Bartell Drugs stores to become Web-based photo fulfillment centers."
