UDI or “Unique Device Identification” is based on ISO compliant standard codes, which must be specified on medical products for traceability requirements. By scanning the code, you can obtain information such as the manufacturer’s name, item reference or expiration date. This allows error-free documentation and helps ensure patient safety.
Laser markings are resistant to acids, cleaners or bodily fluids. As the surface structure remains unchanged, depending on the labeling process, surgical instruments can be kept clean and sterile easily. Even if implants remain inside the body for a long time, no materials from the label can detach themselves and harm the patient.”
Materials suitable for laser marking
- Titanium and titanium alloys
- Stainless steel
- High-alloy steel
- Coated metals
- Plastics (e.g. PEEK for implants)
Application examples of medical technology
Laser marking has already become a standard technology in many areas of the medical industry thanks to the many benefits it offers. These characteristics of the devices- based on the UDI (unique device identification) or MDR (medical device regulation)- are marked with the laser: Data Matrix codes containing batch numbers, production dates, serial numbers, manufacturer information, product information, etc. as well as markings that serve as an anti-counterfeiting measure.
- Medical instruments
- Surgical instruments
- Orthopedic or trauma surgery implants
- Plastic cannulas
Why should I buy a laser for marking medical instruments?
Biocompatibility of laser markings: Laser markings are resistant to acids, cleaners or bodily fluids. As the surface structure remains unchanged, depending on labeling process, no germs can establish themselves on the instruments. Even if implants remain inside the body for a long time, no materials from the label can detach themselves.
Traceability: The marking contents remain legible (also electronically) even under heavy use and after hundreds of cleaning procedures. This means that the parts can be clearly tracked and identified.
