Fairfield have been approved for their product service – laser marking of surgical instruments with GS1 codes.
Key dots are small, laser-engraved DataMatrix barcode labels that can be applied directly to an instrument’s surface. Each key dot contains a unique number or a hospitals GS1 code allowing them to be tracked individually. Key dots have been thoroughly tested for sterility and biocompatibility and are safe for use on surgical instruments.
They are available in a variety of sizes starting from just 3.2mm in diameter and are sold 100 per sheet. Keydots are designed to withstand harsh environments and temperature conditions, so can last up to 200 processing cycles. They have been scientifically evaluated by an independent medical testing laboratory who established that key dots are safe to use on surgical instruments. Choose between Global Trade Item Number (GTIN), Global Individual Asset Identifier (GIAI) or GS1 DataMatrix Codes.
