FDA UDI Rule for Medical Devices

FDA UDI Rule for Medical Devices

The FDA established a unique device identification (UDI) system to identify and trace medical devices throughout their distribution and use. As part of this mandate, labels on medical devices must contain a UDI code in human- and machine-readable form. 

Microscan Gigabit Ethernet Cameras Provide Ampoule Inspection in the Pharmaceutical Industry

ISW GmbH, Microscan Vision Select Partner, designed a turnkey hardware/software solution for the pharmaceutical industry to specifically ensure accurate dimensions and fill levels of ampoules in production, using machine vision inspection with Microscan high-performance Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) cameras to replace error-prone manual quality control processes.

CIPAM’s All-in-One DPM Readers with 2D Barcode Imagers from Microscan Ensure Surgical Instrument Traceability

Surgical instrument traceability is crucial for patient safety and preventing loss of valuable assets. Microscan partner CIPAM developed an all-in-one station for reading any direct part marks (DPM) on the surfaces of surgical instruments, allowing operators to easily check in instruments for use.
