Barcodes for the 21st Century

With recent reports in the mainstream media regarding traceability of implantable medical devices (post PIP scandal), and the trialling of new systems at a number of UK NHS hospitals, we thought it would be a good opportunity to blow our barcode trumpet.

At Tissuemed we have been supplying the TissuePatch™ product range with barcodes for more than 8 years. Most recently, the barcodes have been updated to state of the art ‘3D data matrix’ designs (pictured below), that are GS1 compliant and offer an enhanced level of product information including, name, size, manufacture and expiry dates and GTIN number.
