Automatic Print and Apply to Lab Vials
Before working with Coridian, this major medical laboratory was
printing and hand applying labels to hundreds of vials a day. The
company needed a more efficient and less time consuming way to
print labels and apply them to vials.
Coridian partnered with WS Packaging’s automation division and
developed an automatic print and apply printer. The machine holds a
hopper full of blank vials. When a request is sent through their
software the machine releases the vials. When the vials come down,
the label is printed and is automatically applied to the vial and is ready
for the end user.
Coridian also helped the company determine the best label to use.
They needed a label that fit the vial correctly and one that could be
exposed to different laboratory testing environments.
By using this automatic print and apply solution it takes out
the potential error of applying the wrong label to the vial. It
also takes out the labor of applying the labels. The lab gets a
patient sample in and then they’re able to scan in the patient
information and automatically get the correct vials, correctly
labeled for the aliquot process. Managing hundreds of
samples a day, the new technology reduces errors and
speeds up the process.
