FDA UDI Marking Advantages for the Pharmaceutical Industry
The pharmaceutical industry has placed standards on products produced by manufacturers to ensure items are quality made and safe with the ability to be identified through its unique barcode marking. Thermal label printers and lasers are some of the most popular solutions for barcode marking while verifiers/validators ensure the accuracy of the data contained within the marking. These codes, which can include the origin of the product, its expiration date and its past locations, can help to improve tracking, as well as coding and verification throughout the entire production process. Manufacturers will enjoy a plethora of benefits from the use of these integrated barcoding systems.
As the pharmaceutical industry is consistently under heavy scrutiny concerning the safety of its products, FDA UDI barcode systems work to improve upon existing processes with machine-readable coding and verification equipment. Production is made even more efficient with approved solutions from ID Integration, as these are designed to work with existing processes to improve the production and verification of barcodes.
In addition to the aforementioned benefits, barcode markings can ensure the following:
- The item has not been tampered with
- The item is original and the medicine is not falsified
- Efficient package identification and verification
The following types of equipment can help benefit manufacturers operating within this industry:
- 2D data matrix label software
- 2D data matrix label hardware
- Hand-held 2D data matrix scanners
- Fixed station 2D data matrix verification systems
ID Integration is available to guide manufacturers to the best barcode marking systems and scanners for their unique needs and the specific requirements of the pharmaceutical industry.
