Microscan Hosts Lunch & Learn Event on Preparing Medical Device Barcodes for FDA UDI Compliance

POSTED 08/21/2014

Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision, and lighting solutions, announces that it will host a half-day educational training event titled “Ensuring the Best Codes for FDA UDI Compliance” – presented by Microscan in cooperation with automation experts at Microscan Partner Axis New England. The training is free to attend, includes free lunch for all attendees, and will take place at the Microscan Northeast Technology Center in Nashua, New Hampshire on September 10 at 9 A.M. EDT (Nashua).

The FDA has released its final rule mandating standards for a common, worldwide Unique Device Identification (UDI) system that applies to all medical devices placed on the U.S. market. Stringent requirements for device marking and labeling are being rolled out as early as September of this year. Microscan’s upcoming Lunch & Learn event will review these requirements and introduce methods for ensuring quality barcodes, labels, and marks that meet the demands of the FDA and the expectations of consumers. Attendees of this event will learn which devices are affected by FDA UDI, the timeline for UDI implementation, what businesses involved in medical device manufacturing and labeling need to do to meet compliance, and how to avoid pitfalls. Microscan will also demonstrate tools in barcode and machine vision automation that allow manufacturers to go beyond coding and labeling to validate and verify codes for accuracy throughout the supply chain. This training is intended to help manufacturers develop a UDI preparedness plan, as well as explore Microscan solutions that ensure businesses have the best codes for compliance. Microscan Machine Vision Promoter Jonathon Ludlow and engineers from Axis New England lead this event featuring Microscan's user-friendly AutoVISION® product family, a machine vision suite that pairs a range of plug-and-play inspection cameras with software pre-engineered for barcode quality grading and validation to meet requirements of ISO, AIM, GS1, and more.
