Barcodes on medicines

Monday, 7 February 2022 16:36:04 Europe/Berlin

Several boxes of medicines with barcodes

In February 2019, the European Directive 2011/62/EU entered into force, establishing a single Community code to prevent the falsification of medicines. The entire chain involved in the production and sale of medicines, from laboratories to pharmacies, must take this into account so that they reach citizens.

All those involved had to adapt their computer system to the new data registration regulations. To do this, they use the Datamatrix codes, which replaces the traditional drug barcode, in addition to the seal that verifies that the container has not been manipulated.

Information collected by the Datamatrix

Datamatrix barcodeThe Datamatrix is a two-dimensional square-shaped code that is capable of storing up to 2,335 alphanumeric characters. Their biggest advantage is that, thanks to their redundant information system and error correction, they are readable with up to 30% of their surface damaged. In addition, there does not need to be a high contrast for reading.

The barcode is a system that allows us to encode numbers and letters using an image. There are a variety of types of barcodes, depending on the coding system they use. Each of them is designed to fulfill a specific function, according to the information they collect. There are one-dimensional and two-dimensional codes, which can store more or less information. One of the most used is the code EAN (European Article Number) or IAN (International Article Number), whose task is to identify the products sold in stores.

The use of the EAN-13 code is widespread in Europe and almost the rest of the world, except the United States and Canada, where the UPC (Universal Product Code) is used. This one digit less (12). The simplest and most common way to read a barcode is to use a reader or scanner, as they allow you to interpret it quickly. Now, let's learn how to decipher an EAN barcode manually.

Print non-stop with the new Zebra ZE511 and ZE521

Tuesday, 11 January 2022 17:23:33 Europe/Berlin

Zebra ZE511 and ZE521 printers

Zebra has just released new ZE511 and ZE521 print engines, which feature superior performance. Printing has no limits thanks to its speed and metal construction: you can use them 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It should be noted that these print engines are very robust as they do not require cooling fans, which prevents debris from entering the print engine. Additionally, the external enclosures are resistant to water ingress and dust, an important feature for deploying these models in harsh environments.

They're smartly designed to make your job easier, but they offer much more than reliability. The 4-inch ZE511 and 6-inch ZE521 are both upgrades to the ZE500 model (which includes the ZE500-4 and ZE500-6 printers) with improvements such as the addition of a 4.3-inch color touch screen or the increase in memory (512MB of SDRAM and Flash, compared to 16MB SDRAM and 64MB of Flash memory in the ZE500 series).

Necessary information
