The Guide to Succeeding with UDI Compliance

Posted April 5, 2018

To go along with yesterday’s blog about Unique Device Identification Compliance some may be wondering what is required to be fully compliant with the FDA. With another UDI deadline approaching it’s important to know the steps that will help you get in compliance. With the help of Zebra Technologies, they wrote a small walk through to help you through each step.

Read the walk through below to clear up any confusion. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact our dedicated account managers.


Unique Device Identification Compliance

Posted April 4, 2018

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has established and continues to implement a unique device identification system to properly identify medical devices through their distribution and use. Once fully implemented, the label of most devices will include a unique device identifier (UDI) in human and machine-readable form.

The unique device identification system will be phased in over the next couple of years and offers several benefits. Implementing UDI will improve patient safety, modernize device post-market surveillance, and facilitate medical device innovation. To learn more about UDI read the infographic below!

Tech Tip Tuesday: How to Pick the Right Ribbon for A Barcode Printer

Posted March 27, 2018

It is important to choose the right ribbon to print on your label. Choosing the wrong type of ribbon can result in a poorly printed barcode label, the ink can smear or fade.

There are three types of ribbons: wax, wax/resin, and resin. Please ensure you have a thermal transfer capable printer, we recommend the Airtrack DP-1. It is most reliable, compact, and affordable printer in its class.

Determine the proper ribbon size, choose a ribbon that is equal or less than your printer’s maximum print width where is it enough to cover the surface of your label.

Below is an easy chart for you to choose the right type of ribbon for your application.

Most ribbons are black, but there are color ribbons available to print your labels in color for categorization. If you are interested in a quote for ribbons or colored ribbons, please contact our dedicated account managers.
