What is the First Product to Ever Have a Barcode?

Posted January 10, 2019

Juicy-Fruit-gumOn the episode of Ellen’s Games of Game last night, she asked a question about what is the first product to be have a barcode? Good question!

In the summer of 1974, a supermarket located in Troy, Ohio, scanned it’s very first UPC barcoded product, Wrigley’s Chewing Gum. A barcode that can be printed on something as small as a pack of chewing gum. This develops a long interesting history that is constantly evolving; we are still discovering ways to put more information into these machine read-able barcodes.

Present day, we have QR codes to store large amounts of information that can be unlocked and scanned through smart phones. Further, RFID technology allows there to be a chip embedded within a barcode and with single motion, a reader can read and record its presence.

Posted January 8, 2019

What is a UDI, the Unique Device Identifer? 

The FDA has established and implemented a unique device identification system that is used to adequately to identify medical devices through their distribution and use. With these unique device identifers implemented, it will be able to trace and track medical devices, improve patient safety, modernize device post-market surveillance, and facilitate medical device innovation.

Currently, Class I,II,III medical devices distributed in the United States must carry a UDI to meet the requirements of the Food and Drug Administration(FDA). No UDI? No Business! Medical device products identification labels help maintain compliance, ensure brand consistency, improve operational efficiency, and support business growth.
