Share Article

If you are using barcodes now, you know it is important to your bottom line and to your customers. Today, it is vital that your products' barcodes stand scrutiny and are in compliance with industry standards.

Today, there will be approximately 6 billion barcodes scanned around the world.

That remarkable number has been increasing dramatically since the 1980s, and is now even expected to accelerate with important new applications such as food safety, product traceability, patient safety, and fighting drug counterfeiting. The role of barcode has evolved from being just a time saver to the foundation of information systems in many industries, and is seen as the tool to help solve some of the difficult problems that lay ahead.

In order to maintain their information systems and be in compliance with today’s standards, barcode users need a new set of tools. SCANALYST 3 is designed to meet these evolved needs. Barcode quality verifier, standards compliance checker, supply chain communications and collaboration tool, SCANALYST 3 is all this and more. This comes just in time for companies implementing complex standards such as UDI in healthcare, GS1 standards, ANSI/ISO quality grading, UID in manufacturing or just trying to measure and improve their existing applications.

One of the basic challenges companies face is how to ‘do it right.’ Many do not know what barcode quality level they are producing, even though they are required to produce at least a minimal grade C. Today, a product's barcode is a very important part of that product. If it can’t be read easily in its supply chain, it is invisible and the product will lose value. Likewise, if the data in the barcode is formatted incorrectly, the product may be used incorrectly and cause harm. Think of a product with the wrong serial number or a drug marked with the wrong dose. Today, it just has to be done right and it takes the right tools to ‘do it right.’ SCANALYST 3 is that tool.

Some features include:

  •     ANSI/ISO grading of both 1D and 2D barcodes - All popular barcode types
  •     Portable and easy to use
  •     Built-in database and connections to email for easy correspondence and collaboration on changes and approvals
  •     Images and inspection details in reports to allow all involved to see inspection results and focus on areas that can be improved
  •     Log of test occurrences and results to comply with regulatory and good manufacturing requirements

SCANALYST 3 is one product in AIS’ verification products family. AIS has been producing barcode verification products since 1991, and has been associated with various standards organizations during that time. Since starting in 1985, we have helped some of the world’s largest and most progressive companies with AIDC (Barcode and RFID).

You know that barcodes are important to you and to your customers. It is vital that your products barcodes work and work well. That means they must stand scrutiny and be in compliance with industry standards. You need to equip yourself with the right tools to help you do that.
