HILLSBOROUGH, N.J., June 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Recent US and EU serialization mandates have introduced the GS1 DataMatrix barcode symbology into a much wider role in the pharmaceutical supply chain. While linear barcodes have served as identifiers for SKU- and lot-specific information, the more compact GS1 DataMatrix is now being used as the designated carrier for the greater amounts of data needed to authenticate and track each bottle and carton of prescription drug product. As the role of the DataMatrix has expanded, so has the need to read it consistently and reliably throughout the supply chain.
WHAT: The GS1 DataMatrix Barcode Grading Webinar. It will cover key topics around barcode grading: What it is, when to do it, and how key variables can ultimately affect a barcode grade.
WHO: Vantage Consulting Group, a trusted manufacturing automation expert, and Domino Printing, a global provider of industrial printing. Speakers include Vantage Portfolio Directors Rob Magee, John Capants and Frank Guthrie; and Paul Hammond, Domino Printing's Sector Development Manager for the pharmaceutical industry.
WHEN: Wednesday, June 14, 2017, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT.
WHERE: Online. Register here to attend.
WE'LL BE COVERING:
- How is the GS1 DataMatrix graded?
- Where and when can grading take place?
- How do different printing technologies and substrates affect grading?
- In-depth Q&A with Vantage and Domino presenters.
