Introducing Microscan's
LVS Print Quality Inspection and Barcode Verifiers

 

What is a UDI?
A Unique Device Identifier is a unique numeric or alphanumeric code, which consists of two parts:
1. Device Identifier (DI) - a mandatory, fixed portion that identifies the labeler and the specific version or model of a device.
2. Production Identifier (PI) - a conditional, variable portion of a UDI. This information is maintained by the manufacturer for internal operations. A PI can identify one or more of the following pieces of data:

  • Lot or batch number within which a specific device was manufactured.
  • Serial number of a specific device.
  • Expiration date of a specific device.
  • Date a specific device was manufactured.

Why is it important?
In 2013, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a final rule establishing a unique device identification system designed to adequately identify devices through distribution and use. The final rule requires device labelers to include a unique device identifier (UDI) on device labels and packages, except where the rule provides for an exception or alternative. Each UDI must be provided in a plain-text version and in a form that uses automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) technology.
Meeting compliance requirements for the FDA Unique Device Identification (UDI) rule is priority-one for today’s medical device manufacturers and labelers. With compliance dates on the horizon for new classes of devices, businesses must be proactive in ensuring standardized product serialization and update their labeling procedures at a rapid pace, or forfeit the right to participate legally in the marketplace. The pressure to meet this demand can be daunting, and understanding the available UDI documentation can also be a formidable challenge to the new UDI adopter.

Offline Barcode Verifiers

LVS-9510 The LVS-9510® is for offline verification of bar codes to ISO/IEC standards. The LVS-9510 is unique in the world of ISO verification due to its ease of use and ability to verify linear and two-dimensional (2D) codes without any change of equipment; autodiscriminate the symbology, narrow bar width and aperature to be used to evaluate the code; and highlight trouble spots in the code.
The LVS-9570® is a 1D and 2D handheld bar code verifier designed for offline verification of bar codes to ISO/IEC standards. The LVS-9570 is unique in the world of ISO verification due to its ease of use and ability to verify linear (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) codes using a lightweight, handheld verifier; autodiscriminate the symbology, narrow bar width and aperature to be used to evaluate the code; and highlight trouble spots in the code. LVS-9570
LVS-9580 The LVS-9580® is a high performance handheld solution for off-line bar code verification to ISO/IEC standards. Featuring a high resolution 5.0 megapixel camera, the LVS-9580 reads and analyzes 1D and 2D codes up to 3.0 inches wide and up to 2.25 inches tall. The LVS-9580 verifies multiple bar code types, including any combination of Linear, Matrix (Data Matrix, QR Code, and Aztec Code), and Stacked Linear (PDF 417, Micro PDF and Composite Codes). The LVS-9580 verifies bar code labels located on a wide range of surfaces including corrugated cardboard boxes, shipping containers, and metal surfaces.

In-Line Print Quality Inspection Systems

LVS-7000 For quality and process engineers, the LVS-7000® is the most complete solution among all narrow-web print inspection systems because it reliably catches defects that cause downstream supply chain problems before they become costly. The LVS-7000® is the only Vision System on the market capable of blemish/defect detection, plus variable data, barcode reading and ISO grading capabilities.

 

For quality and process engineers, the LVS-7300® is the simplest solution among all embedded label inspection and barcode verification systems because it’s already integrated and turn-key. The LVS-7300® inspects most sizes or shapes of labels including flat packs, printed circuit boards, pouches, pill bottes and more. LVS-7300

 

LVS-7500 For quality and process engineers, the LVS-7500® is a flexible solution among all retro-fit label inspection and barcode verification systems because it can be integrated onto any thermal transfer printer. The LVS-7500® confirms the accuracy of the printed label image to user defined levels ensuring quality standards are met and providing peace of mind throughout the supply chain. The LVS-7500® is designed to identify defects, eliminate fines and disputes, reduce rework, control waste and avoid liability.

 

About Label Vision Systems (LVS)

Established in Peachtree City, Georgia, in 1993, LVS has become a leading provider of label inspection, print inspection, and barcode verification products, solutions, and services for the life sciences and other industries. The company has experienced rapid growth recently and is expected to continue this trend as its technology enables companies to meet UDI (Unique Device Identification) legislation and to improve product traceability throughout the manufacturing supply chain. LVS’s technology, products, and solutions allow companies to inspect barcodes either offline or inline to achieve 100% compliance to UDI and GS1 standards. LVS is known for technology leadership and will benefit from being part of Microscan’s global network as it looks to accelerate growth outside of North America.
