Gain Control Over your Assets with RFID Asset – Modern Software for Growing Businesses

Posted October 2, 2015

One of the complex challenges small and medium sized organizations face is efficiently keeping track of critical assets as their organizations scale. Without a reliable automated asset management system, there is a sharp increase in redundancies, expenditures, and labor.

Imagine locating many diverse assets in a room in a matter of seconds, rather than hours. Because RFID technology reads multiple tags at once without requiring a line of sight, customers are able to more quickly and accurately locate and track assets without the physical challenges of scanning bar codes and manual methods.

RFID Asset maximizes Radio Frequency Identification technology to automate asset tracking and management in a wide variety of environments and situations. The software supports passive RFID tags, barcodes, fixed readers like the Zebra FX7500 and mobile handheld readers like Zebra’s MC3190-Z and MC9190-Z.

Case Study: Datamax-O’Neil Performance Series Meets the Challenge of Small Text and Data on Cryogenic Labels

Posted September 23, 2015

For a leading ISO 13485:2003-certified OEM manufacturer of enzymes, meeting the rigorous demands of commercial entities engaged in the development, manufacture, and distribution of platforms dedicated to nucleic-acid identification is a daily challenge. Enzymes are critical to the performance of these applications, and the industry’s relentless pursuit of higher performance emphasizes the need for analytical-reagent purity and absolute production consistency.

Operating from the perspective that they are “a manufacturing division of their customer,” the company consistently delivers the highest quality and value enzymes, leveraging them to drive customer success via a business partnership model. Part of that consistent delivery means labeling goods so that they are easily and accurately identified when they arrive in the lab.

Problem

When enzymes are manufactured, they start in batches of 50-gallon vats, and then are broken down into small vials as part of a kit sold to research and testing facilities. These vials must be labeled individually; the labels include a great deal of data, two-dimensional barcodes, and very small type. Because of the temperatures at which they need to be maintained, cryogenic polypropylene labels are used.
