Packaging & Labeling Resources

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.

UDI Compliance Guide

With compliance dates on the horizon for implementing UDI for new classes of medical devices, businesses must be proactive in ensuring standardized product serialization and update their labeling procedures at a rapid pace, or forfeit the right to participate legally in the marketplace. This whitepaper offers guidelines for simplifying each step toward UDI compliance and answers common questions about the FDA UDI rule.
