    RFID Labelling Solutions for Pharmaceutical and Healthcare

    May 4, 2021

    Many countries are paying attention to improving the track-and-trace of drug prescription and labelling. The drive for RFID-based solutions by governments continue​s to emerge in the pharmaceutical and healthcare market​s. RFID technology is expected to play a significant role for identifying counterfeit drugs while improving patient safety. Improved traceability lowers operating costs by reducing the number of lost or stolen items. Recently, the challenge for medical authorities and governments is to follow mandatory storage guideline for COVID-19 vaccines once they reach the facility. Providers should deploy RFID tags with a sensor to ensure vaccines are kept at the required temperature to avoide any waste. Three key ways the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries can take advantage of RFID-enabled labelling solutions to better manage their operations are: Improve Patient Safety - To facilitate retrieval of patient’s medication and meal scheduling, prescribed medicines and the patient’s medical history. - Medical supplies that are ordered, sorted and tracked via RFID label ensure the correct most appropriate care. Inventory Control - Tracking the supply of medical equipment to avoid any shortage. - Monitoring imports and exports of pharmaceutical raw materials and finished product. - Monitoring the consistent temperature for refrigerated vaccines from manufacture through delivery to health care facilities. Quality Assurance - The right medication must be administered in correct dosage. RFID helps to ensure this through RFID labels that provide medical personnel with the information they need to make correct decisions. BIXOLON offers comprehensive RFID label printers to address the needs of the pharmaceutical industry as well as the challenges faced by the healthcare industry. Recently introduced XT5-40NR and XD5-40tR supports UHF RFID printing and encoding capabilities and built-in LCD enhances visibility and tracking performance. By closely spacing RFID inlay (minimum pitch of 0.6 inches / 16mm) it reduces media waste and decreases the media replacement cycle. ​BIXOLON's RFID printers provide fast and reliable performance when ​printing and ​encoding RFID tags in harsh environments like temperature-controlled supply chains.

    Flawless Mobile Specimen Collection at Drive-through COVID-19 Test Centres

    September 21, 2020

    As of September 2020, the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) continues to spread despite months of persistent effort, involving 184 countries with more than 29.7million confirmed cases. While people around the world have been finding it hard to adapt to the New Normal, large-scale testing for the virus is considered to be of critical importance to identify cases as early as possible and conduct prompt contact tracing. In order to maximise testing capacity, a number of healthcare organizations have seen the advantages of drive-through testing such as the prevention of cross-infection between patients in a waiting space, the speed of administering tests and reduced staffing requirements. The steps in specimen collection at the drive-through test centres consist of registration, examination, specimen collection, and instructions. The samples collected at the site are identified with handwritten or printed labels including patients’ information and the time of collection for accurate testing at a clinical lab. Some countries where pre-registration is available, labels for specimens are prepared in advance to reduce the distance staff need to walk back and forth. Whereas in countries visitors will be seen without a pre-registration, where time is required to access identification and printing sample labels from a stationary kiosk. Labelling specimens far away from the point of collection would also increase the risk for errors. Equipping front-line workers with rugged mobile printing solutions enables the smooth running of the test site. Clinical staff scan a patient's ID using a mobile computer at a distance, and sends the data to the national hospital system to create an account. A specimen label can be instantly printed using the data and a mobile label printer. BIXOLON’s mobile printers are optimised for this application to enable optimum DT centres to functionality. Staff can save time reducing idle walking time between the car and the station to print a label, enabling workflow to be streamlined and the testing process is expedited. This will facilitate more tests for symptomatic patients and significantly elevate capacity of each centre per day. Labels instantly printed by the car can also help prevent mis-identification.

    BIXOLON's Linerless Labelling Solutions for Healthcare

    August 12, 2020

    Hospitals are generally categorised as fast-paced environments requiring efficiency and speed to provide optimum patient care and maintain staff satisfaction. Staff are often demanded to carry out complex tasks working with sensitive information which requires precise reporting to reduce errors. Traditionally this type of information was hand written, however to improve the speed and accuracy there has been a rapid adoption of barcode labelling as a way to store, report and track important information within the Healthcare industry. Today, medical labelling is used for a variety of applications from documenting patient medical histories, diagnosis and treatment; to providing vital prescription information or documenting medical samples. Labels have become an important communicator for both medical facilities and pharmacies where accurate labelling of items can guarantee the right care is provided to the patient. However as the demand for medical assistance continues to rise, many institutions are looking for more cost and time-efficient labelling solutions. BIXOLON offers a linerless labelling solution which meets the market’s demand. Linerless media is a pressure-sensitive label with a special release coating applied on the face of the label without silicon liner. Linerless labelling solutions help to enhance time efficiency while reduce unnecessary slippery silicon-backed liner waste and even save operational costs. Linerless labelling offers the following benefits; ㆍ Time efficiencyㆍ Eco-Friendly ㆍ Safe working environment ㆍ More labels per roll ㆍ Cuts operational cost Since BIXOLON introduced its exclusive linerless label printer, the XL5-40 and B-linerless™ media to the Healthcare market, the printer has provided the industry with numerous efficiency and productivity printing benefits due to its initiative design and value added features.

    Printing in Chilled and Cold Conditions

    December 3, 2019

    Printing in Chilled and Cold Conditions Technology use is developing at a pace and the use of mobility is driving change in many vertical markets. A growing mobile workforce means printing at the point of picking, packing, identification or dispatch is accessible to all corners of the warehouse or every doorstep in town. However, how can you be sure that your print quality is maintained across a range of temperatures? The operation of thermal printers in conditions with less than ambient temperatures will often result in poor, illegible print output if any at all. There are an increasing number of companies in the postal, medical, retail and pharmaceutical sectors looking for more effective labelling solutions in cold conditions. Traditional operating procedures - printing in one place and labelling elsewhere, mean that processes cannot be improved. This is counterintuitive to what is actually happening in many verticals. The refrigerated production, storage and distribution of foods and medicines is experiencing growth and this is resulting in investment in this sector. Some of this is due to our changing consumer habits and our wish for fresher foods faster, plus we are witnessing improving legislation to make our foods and medicines safer. Whilst sensors, data, networking and AI might be components parts of these temperature-controlled supply chains it is still in many cases the humble barcode that instigates this activity. Therefore, having the ability to print a quality barcode at source is paramount. Unseasonal weather conditions or longer, more inclement winters are also a consideration when addressing the printing needs for a workforce operating outside in chilled and cold conditions. Workers in many verticals, including Agriculture, Forestry, Parking Management, Policing, Scene of Crime and Postal, have a need to output a variety of different print formats – identification or asset labels, receipts or notifications, which are expected to be available on-demand. BIXOLON's award winning design of mobile printers have proven cold temperature operation.
