In order to comply with FDA UDI standards, all medical device manufacturers must properly format their labels and include a unique device identifier (UDI) to help end users easily identify package contents. Changing requirements can be a challenge for manufacturers in this industry, while incorrect information can lead to fines, recalls and a reduction in consumer confidence.

One multinational medical device contract manufacturer was finding that its label inspection process, which was largely performed manually, was becoming unmanageable due to the need to easily shift manufacturing lines across multiple facilities. The company needed a better way to maintain precision and accuracy as demand increased.

The customer reached out to Omron for a solution to improve labeling speed and consistency across its many facilities. Omron responded by offering the LVS-7510 system with specifications fitting the exact customer need. Let’s take a look at why this solution was optimal.

1. It performs highly accurate barcode quality grading.

The FDA UDI mandate requires barcodes to be of a certain quality threshold to ensure their readability throughout the supply chain. Simply validating that a certain barcode reader can decode a symbol isn’t enough. The LVS-7510 verifies that barcodes meet a wide variety of quality criteria, including high contrast, lack of blemishes, and more.

2. It’s printer-integrated. 

Omron worked with Zebra, the world’s leading printer manufacturer, to ensure compatibility with the company’s thermal printers. It’s currently the only Zebra printer-integrated system that grades 100% of produced labels to the full gamut of ISO and GS1 standards.

3. It makes label verification easy.

The LVS-7510 creates templates for each requisite label format that can then be saved in the cloud and accessed across all facilities. This helps transitions from one facility to another flow seamlessly and guarantees that every label produced meets a global standard created by a team of experts in these regulations.
