September 06, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Mississauga ON., Tuesday September 6, 2007- PSI Engineering, an industry leader in material handling and document automation, announced it will provide a world-renown biopharmaceutical company with a printing solution that will increase the speed and safety with which they label their medical products.

Patient safety has always been a top priority for this company. Before the FDA instated a regulation requiring barcode labels on medications, this organization had already implemented such a system with most of their pharmaceutical products. By placing lot numbers, expiration dates and barcodes on medications and related products, it ensures that this company, hospitals and medical staff identify expired or recalled medications, as well as, ensures that the correct medication is administered to the patient.

Initially, the technology that was available was not sufficient to print labels for some of the more challenging products that this company manufactures. Consequently, this biopharmaceutical organization approached PSI Engineering to supply a printing solution that would meet all of their labeling requirements. PSIís Laser Mail DPT enables this company to print labels with lot numbers, expiration dates and high quality, solid barcodes for their complete pharmaceutical product line.

PSIís Laser Mail DPT with 500 input capacity load-on-the-fly friction feeder and 300 output catch tray, enables this organization to print the lot numbers and expiration dates on a self-adhesive white paper that provides eighteen individual application labels. In addition, the barcode is printed at the bottom of the label which is ideal for their current inserting equipment. PSIís automation solution calculates and prints the necessary information with minimal operator involvement thereby, significantly increasing efficiency and decreasing human error.

PSIís Laser Mail DPT generates a high quality product with one printing pass in contrast to many printing systems on the market today, which require multiple printing passes to accomplish the same task. Additionally, it prints stock at a rate of 25 per minute. These features lead to considerable time savings for many organizations.

Using their industry first technology, PSI Engineering has supplied a printing solution that helps this renowned organization to exceed the efficiency requirements and budgetary needs of their operation without compromising the safety of their patients and customers.
