Global regulatory agencies – such as the US FDA and the European Commission – are enacting strict policies for labeling and registration of medical equipment. This includes devices ranging from simple tongue depressors to complex life-saving technologies.

With patient safety at the core of these unique device identification (UDI) regulations, there is no room for compromise. A single unintentional divergence from regulations carries the potential for penalties and irreparable damage to a company’s reputation and market share.

Medical device manufacturers require labeling and barcode software solutions that are secure, proven and reliable; that fully integrate with existing systems and workflows; and scale and adapt to evolving business practices.

You need to know who edited or printed your labels every time

BarTender gives complete visibility to the labeling process — who accessed a label, what edits they made, where and when a label was printed. Capture e-signatures and complete audit trail for compliance with global regulations, including FDA 21 CFR Part 11.

Set up serialization across your network, and then forget about it

BarTender continually manages and monitors the serialization — unique, random or sequential — that drives your regulatory compliance. Increment serial numbers at a single printer or at printers across your network.

EU MDR compliance: format IFU and implant card, and then connect them with packaging and labeling

BarTender’s new, exclusive tables feature gives you powerful document design capabilities. Group all of a product’s documents and labels into one BarTender file and populate data from a single source, reducing the risk of human error.
