Transiting from 1D to 2D barcode in the Healthcare Sector on 17 June 2016

US FDA has established a unique device identification system to effectively identify medical devices through their distribution and use. The label of most medical devices will include a unique device identifier (UDI) in both human and machine-readable form.
