St. Paul, MN USA – Computype announces advances in barcode marking technologies that offer greater image reliability for a wider range of containers to global healthcare customers. Having long been a provider of pre-labeled and pre-barcoded labware as part of its READY Labware Services offering, Computype understands that labware identification needs often go beyond what a pressure sensitive label can accommodate.
The traditional pressure sensitive label is tried and true, can withstand extreme temperatures- even those as harsh as -196°C- but ultimately isn’t a permanent identification solution. Ceramic labels are fired onto glass labware, ultimately becoming part of the container itself and provide the ultimate in long-term storage, but cannot accommodate customers who utilize plastic containers. Direct mark offers the economic benefits of a pressure sensitive label and the permanent identification features of ceramic labeling regardless if the labware is plastic or glass, ultimately providing global healthcare customers additional options for container identification.
Computype has long been perfecting direct mark technology with the strategic goal of offering customers a permanent identification option for both plastic and glass labware at a moderate price point. “Our READY Labware Services Program offers customers the ultimate in convenience as labware can be procured, marked, tared, and custom-packed all before arriving at the customer location”, says Jeff Denton, Global Product Manager of Computype’s READY Labware Service Program. “The addition of direct mark technology rounds out our product portfolio and allows us to provide customers with the best container identification based on application.”
Globally rebranded in 2016, Computype’s READY Labware Service Program is a tailored service offering suited to customer process and application needs. The program ultimately removes barcoding, labeling, and associated tasks like labware procurement, container tare weighing, and even kitting/packing from customer sites. “The ability to outsource activities related to container identification is appealing to many of our global pharmaceutical and biotechnology customers because they realize in that allowing us to be their ‘barcode marking experts’ they ultimately save on costs, time, and administrative work” says Denton. “Our ability to provide direct mark as an identification technology option in addition to these services means that our customers, and our customers’ customers can focus even more of their time on research and strategic business goals.”
Computype is located in St Paul, MN, USA, and Hull, UK, and works in collaborative partnership with global healthcare customers to manage barcode and labeling activities. To learn more about direct mark as part of Computype’s READY Labware Service Program, visit www.comptuype.com/READY
