Domino Amjet Inc. (Gurnee, IL) and Barcode Technology Inc. (BTI) are forming an alliance to provide drug manufacturers with an in-line laser system that can print and verify RSS composites, with human readables, at production line speeds. The system will combine Domino's DSL1 laser with BTI's RSS bar code software, providing precise, readable, microcodes as small as 0.55 mm high. The alliance will help drug companies code their products with variable information, ensuring that hospitals have the machine-readable labeling date they require to reduce medication errors.
