Transfusion Medicine

Identifying human blood products is one of the most critical applications you can imagine—and Computype has produced more barcode labels for the international blood bank community than any other company. Our vision-based inspection system guarantees Donation Identification Number (DIN) scannability—every symbol on every set is scanned and decoded multiple times prior to shipment. More importantly, we guarantee sequence integrity, because a duplicate DIN label can mean the death of a patient.  It simply has to be right.  And we’ve been getting it right in blood banking for over 35 years.

Our labeling products range from DIN label sets to product labels to blank stock and printers for on-demand label generation to simple software to track blood in a transfusion service. Our intelligent print stations—we call them DIN Replicators—are installed in scores of blood banks throughout North America. These scan-one-print-one systems are simple and cost-effective. They prevent errors by ensuring you’ll never manually record a bar-coded number again.
