LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. – July 8, 2021 – Recognizing the significance of today’s evolving regulatory demands, Epson, NiceLabel and 3M are coming together to host a webinar on Thursday, July 15 at 11 a.m. PT to discuss life sciences label materials, software and printing solutions and present best practices for managing all of their labeling requirements and ensuring regulatory compliance. Medical manufacturers and life science organizations are kept under a microscope to ensure critical industry regulations are upheld. At the forefront is product labeling compliance. At every point in the product lifecycle – from manufacture and distribution to lab or medical facility safekeeping and into the hands of the patient or physician – accurate labeling is essential for maintaining patient safety and ensuring efficiency for healthcare stakeholders.
At the foundational level, medical equipment, devices and supplies such as bags, vials, syringes, bottles or tubes, are required by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), among other regulatory bodies, to include unique device identifiers (UDI) to track products throughout the healthcare supply chain. With increasing compliance regulations and the logistical challenges managing hundreds or thousands of SKUs, the webinar will look at why medical device manufacturers and life science organizations require a comprehensive labeling solution to streamline operations, ensure compliance and deliver accurate and durable labels.
“An end-to-end labeling system inclusive of software, hardware and specialized media can make all the difference when it comes to eliminating errors, lost time and unnecessary expenditures,” said Andrew Moore, product manager, Commercial Label Printers, Epson America, Inc. “In the medical space especially, it’s critical that the labeling system churns out labels that remain durable and readable to meet guidelines to withstand sterilization, freeze and thaw cycles, and contact with chemicals and other substances or processes that would typically cause a label to fade or rip.”
3M’s medical label materials are designed for a range of traditionally challenging labels such as those with tight radiuses or small diameters, flexible surfaces, hard to-stick-to LSE materials, and more. NiceLabel Label Cloud Compliance, the world’s first validation-ready, multi-tenant cloud labeling solution, unites every labeling task on one platform – from design to management to print. Built for companies in regulated industries, Label Cloud Compliance provides manufacturers of all sizes with robust labeling technology, security and system availability without significant investment in IT infrastructure and maintenance.
“Recognizing a need in the market, we built Label Cloud Compliance for companies to meet evolving regulatory requirements. Digital approval workflows, automated mass label changes and a 12-year print history all provide a more streamlined way to manage labeling in a regulated environment,” said Susan Gosnell, Loftware’s NiceLabel product marketing manager.
During the hour-long webinar, Epson will also showcase the General Data PAC5 color label print-and-apply label applicator, which automates the application of labels. It is designed to streamline and simplify label printing and application. NiceLabel’s software solutions, as well as 3M’s medical label materials and the General Data PAC5 applicator integrate with Epson’s ColorWorks® label printers, creating an end-to-end labeling solution for streamlining and simplifying labeling and compliance.
