Marking of medical technology with products from Östling Marking Systems for simple and effective product identification

The marking of medical instruments leads to the improvement of the internal traceability, and thus ensures an effective control of each individual instrument. The marking and identification of individual instruments before, during and after sterilization is more important than ever at times of multi-resistant germs. Protect your patients and staff with our marking solutions. Because health is more easily lost than regained.

ÖSTLING MARKING SYSTEMS is a certified HIBC Solution Provider

HIBC stands for “Health Industry Bar Code” but is also synonymous with the association of members of the same name in medical technology.

Technically defined HIBC as standard a worldwide unique structure that was originally developed in 1986 for barcode and today is used with modern symbologies such as Code 128, DataMatrix and QR-Code, as well as RFID. Thus all common marking variants can be used with one data structure.

With HIBC manual documentation is avoided and processes are saved. The Health Industry Barcode (HIBC) is a special form of barcode and has been specially developed and optimized for the health care sector and in particular for medical and dental products. The HIBC contains the necessary information for the legally required safety plans and the associated traceability.
