New High Accuracy Barcode Printer Is Perfect For Medical Device Packaging

Labelling on medical devices has come a long way from the days of using hard-to-read pen and paper labels to today's advanced technology of laser printing which often includes barcodes.

Barcode Printer

The use of barcodes within medical device labelling has been instrumental in ensuring that patient information is clear and accurate. This technology not only allows for batches of labels to be printed, scanned, and quickly verified, but it also ensures compliance with regulatory authorities. Laser printing typically offers exceptional quality in print resolution while also providing a robust solution that can operate in inhospitable environments with various temperature ranges.

Moreover, these label prints are far more durable than those created by traditional methods such as thermal transfer printing or hot foil transfer printing. Looking ahead, it's safe to say that coupled with changes in labelling regulations, leading medical device manufacturers have no choice but to explore new printing technologies for meeting their labelling requirements.

One of the newest printers on the market is being well received due to its high accuracy rate.

Toshiba Thermal Barcode Printer

Toshiba has unveiled their revolutionary new thermal barcode printer, designed to provide crisp and clear labels every time. The innovative technology eliminates 'media shift' issues - giving you perfect prints regardless of your label size. Employing high-resolution printing capabilities, Toshiba's advanced solution produces the best quality results for all types of designs.

The Toshiba B-EX473HS is a revolutionary medical equipment barcode printer, designed to meet all the labelling needs of healthcare organisations. Featuring cutting-edge technology including auto-calibration, this printer ensures precision for even the most complicated labelling jobs.

This easy-to-use equipment allows for efficient, cost-effective, and error-free operation, making it an ideal choice for busy healthcare environments. With its intuitive design and feature set, it is the perfect solution to support patient identification, specimen tracking, and medication administration needs. In addition, its compact size allows for convenient transportation and storage, making it an excellent choice for any medical establishment.

The Toshiba B-EX473HS offers unbeatably precise printing with 600 dpi resolution, a maximum speed of 6 inches per second, and labels down to 0.51 x 0.12 inches in size for the most intricate designs. From alignment accuracy to avoiding media shifts, this machine ensures perfect prints every time - no more frustrating moments at the printer!

By utilising this innovative technology, manufacturers will be able to produce their labels in-house with greater cost efficiency and improved compliance management. This opens new possibilities for streamlining the production process while keeping track of quality control standards.

Issues with Getting Accuracy in Labelling of Medical Device Packaging

Pharmaceutical devices have been subject to intense regulation and scrutiny in recent years, and with good reason - it is critical to accurately label these products so that patients can properly identify the exact drugs a device contains. For example, there have been issues where it is difficult to fit all the required information onto a surface area of a small label. Nonetheless, errors still regularly occur that could put patient safety at risk.

Incorrect labels may cause people to receive the wrong medication or use a device incorrectly, leading to side effects or even serious health consequences.

To protect patients from such risks, manufacturers must strive for near-perfect accuracy when labelling their pharmaceutical devices. This can be accomplished through multiple steps such as implementing quality assurance protocols and regular independent testing of the product by certified laboratories before its release into the market.

The FDA recently released strict rules requiring medical device packaging to have a unique device identifier (UDI) printed on the product itself, necessitating extreme precision. Fortunately, Toshiba's new printer is up for the challenge - with the advanced high-resolution technology it can guarantee accuracy in meeting these exacting standards!

With proper implementation of these processes, companies operating in this sector can ensure that their products remain safe for consumers while complying with industry standards. Medical packaging solutions will continue to offer a range of solutions to the medical and healthcare industries with features that enable medical equipment to be safely used.
