With Microscan's 25 August 2015 acquisition of verification systems innovator Label Vision Systems, Inc., (LVS), Microscan's technology portfolio now includes a comprehensive suite of all-in-one, standards-based verification products to ensure barcode structure compliance and print quality on device labels. Microscan off-line barcode verifiers enable users to test newly-designed labels for quality and compliance issues before printing, while Microscan in-line verification systems can be integrated into manufacturing lines and printers to check label quality on the fly during label application. In off-line testing, LVS Barcode Verifiers parse and evaluate codes for data structure accuracy, applying the appropriate GS1, HIBCC, or ICCBBA specification tables for the selected device class and application and highlighting problem areas or missing elements in code structure that cause noncompliance. These verification solutions address the growing need for compliance to the FDA's Unique Device Identification (UDI) rule, as well as other regulated barcoding and product serialization standards.
At this year's UDI Conference, Microscan will showcase solutions to ensure compliance with the UDI rule, including the latest LVS verifiers, the most trusted brand for barcode verification and label inspection. Demonstrations will be provided using LVS-95XX Software, a consistent software environment that is scalable across the range of LVS Barcode Verifiers: the LVS-9510 Barcode Verifier for stationary desktop verification, and both the LVS-9570 and LVS-9580 Handheld Barcode Verifiers for complete mobility in an ergonomic design. Visitors can observe how verification software grades codes against GS1, ISO/IEC, and other barcode quality standards and offers detailed analytical tools for verification, reporting, and diagnosing quality issues to enable independent problem-solving. In addition to LVS verifiers, Microscan will demonstrate the Microscan DPM Verifier for ensuring compliance of direct part marks (DPM) - codes permanently abraded to device surfaces (required for Class III devices by September 24, 2016). Visitors are encouraged to bring their own devices and labels to the show to be verified by Microscan LVS and verification experts on the spot at the Microscan booth
In addition to hosting booth #20, Microscan will lead a live demonstration as part of the AIM North America Healthcare Committee during the UDI Conference. "The Auto ID Technologies & In-House Systems for UDI Compliance" will be co-presented by former LVS CEO Tim Lydell on March 23, 1:45 P.M. to 3:15 P.M. This course will guide users on understanding auto ID technologies and will cover topics such as how to create codes, how to get them onto a label/tag, how to access the data, in-house systems functionality, and how these technologies can provide additional benefit to organizations beyond complying with the UDI Regulation.
Microscan's dedicated LVS product team will be available throughout the show to discuss print quality and verification challenges with visitors to the Microscan booth.
