Donation Identification Number (DIN) Label Replicator

Donation Identification Number (DIN) Label Replicator

Scan-one print-one technology for instances when you need just one more label

Whether you need to reprint an existing DIN label or just make a copy, the DIN Label Replicator is the perfect solution for you.

Simply scan an existing label and the DIN Label Replicator’s system generates a replica.

It is the ideal solution when you need another DIN label – for donor/patient records or confirmatory testing.

Our DIN replicator systems are modified to perform one task, and one task only—replicate individual labels. We work with your existing barcoding system to ensure your replicator duplicates your labels, and only your labels. It’s programmed to print only the size, symbology and character count associated with your processes to reduce opportunity for error.

Computype DIN labels are also made utilizing familiar and trustworthy printers from our partners as base models. This brings a familiar user experience and level of quality to your facility, so you can spend less time training employees and more time preparing donations.

DIN Label Replicator

What can a DIN Replicator do for you?

  • Duplicate labels to meet ISBT 128, Codabar or any other standards you might require, efficiently and inexpensively

  • Save space with a compact full solution printer scanning system

  • Generate new barcodes with an optional keyboard device that allows for manual code entry

  • Reduce waste and errors with fool proof scan-one print-one technology

  • Save on your DIN when you reduce the overall size of your sets by excluding rarely used labels and instead print DIN label replicas as needed.

Key Features

To ensure a familiar and intuitive user-experience we utilize label printers from our existing product line as a base for our replicator systems—specifically Zebra’s ZD series. These printers are trusted in the blood industry to provide durable, scannable barcodes and efficiency when printing DIN labels in-house.

If your facility would prefer a different label printer or has more specialized needs, we can work with you to customize any other printer in our product line to perform replication.

Compact and Integrated Design

All of the base printers we utilize for our DIN replicators are compact desktop models designed to fit right in the workspace and transport easily if necessary.

Additionally, all the parts you need are integrated into the final design including a scanner and optional keyboard module.

User-Friendly Interface

The interface will vary from base model to base model, however, the ZD series is known for its user-friendliness. Whether you choose the minimalistic 3 button interface of the ZD 220 or the colorful LCD screen of the ZD 620, you can expect an intuitive interaction.

Built in Error Proofing

Our replicators are programed to recognize and duplicate ONLY your internal barcodes to prevent the wrong labels from being replicated.

By ensuring the accuracy of your labeling you can ensure the safety of your donations.

Print as needed

Whether a label has become unusable or your DIN set was just one label short for this particular use-case, using a replicator lets you replicate labels from your DIN sets individually, so you can get the exact amount of labels you need, exactly when you need them.

Cost Efficient

Not only are the replicators themselves reasonable in price, but adding a replicator to your processes can help you save on DIN sets and add flexibility to your process.

By introducing a replicator to your process you may be able to trim some rarely used labels off of your DIN sets by opting to print extra’s only as needed.

How Can DIN Replicators be Helpful to Blood Banks?

Efficiency without sacrificing accuracy is extremely important in the blood banking industry. Donations need to find their way to patients quickly, efficiently and most importantly accurately.

DIN replicators allow you to ensure no samples go to waste due to lack of identity when you can simply scan an existing DIN label and print a duplicate. Replicators are programmed to recognize only your internal symbology for error reduction to promote both efficiency and safety

How much does a DIN Replicator Cost?

For a very basic replicator system that includes a printer, scanner and customized scan menu we estimate that the cost would start around $1,500 for an average application. However, cost is difficult to accurately estimate since most DIN replicator systems are customized in some way to best suit your needs.

All of our replicators are customized to meet the specific needs of your facility, and things like the base model you choose, DPI requirements and any additional custom features will affect the cost.

Base Model

Our standard base models are from the ZD desktop series. The three models which make up this series range in features and price, from the ZD 220 value model to the ZD 620 premium model. Upgrades within the series, such as the ability to withstand healthcare sanitization processes, can also impact the price of your base model.

Printers from our other partners can also be converted to replicators if preferences or more customized needs exist—this will also impact the overall cost.

Check out our review of the ZD series for more  details on its features, benefits and limitations

DPI Requirements

Just like most printers, an increase in DPI will lead to an increase in overall cost. That increase comes from the specialized equipment necessary to allow a printer to provide such a high resolution image, and the fact that high DPI doesn’t offer value to everyone.

High image resolution is rarely required in the blood industry. Only extremely small barcode labels that would be used on very small vials or caps might require 600 DPI.


Any additional customizations beyond your choice in base model and DPI will impact your overall cost—and as we mentioned all of our replicators are tailored to meet the specific needs of our customers.

We recommend you ensure you are only choosing customizations that are necessary and valuable to your processes. This way you can avoid spending on unnecessary features and ensure you’ll find value in those you did choose, and don’t worry if you’re unsure of what is and isn’t necessary we are here to help!
