UDI, or ‘Unique Device Identification’, must be displayed on all medical products. This is mostly for traceability purposes. By scanning the code, you should be able to read all the important information about the instrument, including the manufacturer’s name, reference number as well as the item’s expiration date. This will always ensure an error- and risk-free documentation and will help to ensure patient safety.
Laser markings are completely resistant to all acids, cleaners and bodily fluids. Because the surface structure of the instrument will remain unchanged when laser processed, the equipment will always be clean and sterile. Even if an implant is left inside the body for a long time, the materials from the label will never detach or harm a patient.
