Managing Director of SATO International Europe Brian Lang, commented on the new GS1 certification:
SATO’s new patient wristband identification system, which meets the required standard for 2D barcode print quality, was approved by GS1 following stringent tests to determine its conformance to the specific patient information structure required for patient identification wristbands.
