Cut the Cost of Doing Census

In life sciences, tracking samples, people, equipment/devices, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals, as well as compounds, can seem like a daunting task. With different items being tracked, figuring out what process should be used to track the various items could be complicated as well as time-consuming. That’s where RFIDPros come in. We have been working with barcode and RFID technologies for over 20 years, and our experience, as well as knowledge, can lead you to the right solution.

Whether you are tracking samples in a lab, production of pharmaceuticals, or people going in and out of a hospital storage room, we have the solution that fits your needs. We will work with you, weigh the pros and cons of the different solutions, and finally work with you to determine which solution would work best in your facility.

The Benefits of Using RFID in Life Sciences Fields

Many laboratories have seen the benefits of using RFID in their facility, especially when it comes to taking census. There are many benefits including:

  • RFID and 2D barcode are UDI (Unique Device Identifiers) which will help you meet FDA requirements.
  • Traceability of devices, instruments, and critical chemicals/reagents used for developing compounds.
  • Allows workstation tracking with hands-free RFID recording of sample location which gives you faster/up to the minute visibility for customer status inquiries.
  • Keep accurate and up-to-date records of items moving in and out of the facility.

Biological research facilities rely on performing cage census for billing purposes, but they often underestimate the cost of managing and counting the cages that make business happen. Or worse, they do not get an accurate count and are unable to accurately locate cages.

Luckily, we have a solution that can solve challenges often seen in testing labs: Vivarium Census System.

Recommended Hardware

  • MC3330R Handheld RFID Reader

    The MC3330R Integrated UHF RFID handheld reader provides superior RFID read performance, enabling workers to accurately and rapidly capture RFID tags on even the most challenging items in half the time as the next leading competitor. Zebra’s high-performance ASIC radio technology delivers a read rate that is more than 25% faster and 40% more accurate than other devices in this class. The Geiger Counter mode can help pinpoint the location of a specific item. With Zebra’s advanced standard-range 1D/2D scan engine, workers can capture 1D and 2D barcodes with the same device. The MC3330R shares the same RFID SDK as other Zebra RFID handheld readers to streamline application development, while our common EMDK and RFID SDK simplify full-fleet rollouts.rent form factors yet built on a singular core platform, the 70 Series RFID gives you the benefits of specialized devices with the reduced complexity and cost savings that come from adopting a common platform.
