Staying up to date on traceability in the medical industry

Strategic solutions for complying with medical device regulations and automating the clinical laboratory

The upcoming deadline for FDA UDI compliance has brought traceability to the forefront of conversations in the medical device manufacturing industry. This somewhat belies the fact that traceability has long been an essential component of the medical profession and the life sciences. In fact, laboratory automation has been a major driving force behind the development of robust, real-time traceability systems due to the need for high accuracy in the midst of much faster specimen processing.

This white paper examines several traceability-related trends in the medical industry and life sciences today, along with numerous strategies for ensuring regulatory compliance and getting the utmost value out of the transition to a fully automated clinical laboratory.

Omron products that solve traceability challenges

The white paper on traceability in the life sciences and medical industry presents several Omron products that can help medical device manufacturers and hospitals seeking to upgrade their traceability systems make the most of their new solutions. Following are some of the technologies featured.

The MicroHAWK ID industrial barcode readers put powerful code reading capabilities into a compact design that can be easily embedded within space-constrained equipment. They are ideal for the design and production of automated laboratory testing machines and similar medical technologies.

The LVS verifiers and print quality inspection systems help ensure that 1D/2D barcodes, direct part marks (DPMs) and printed labels are readable and properly formed. Without a solid verification system, unreadable symbols and labels containing errors could be distributed throughout the production line or even into the market, causing valuable information to be lost.

The NX/NJ series controllers are designed to directly transfer traceability information to a SQL database without hampering machine control performance with embedded SQL connectivity. By making secure data transfer easily available at the machine level, these controllers help manufacturers reap the benefits of valuable data while maintaining the desired production cycle time.
