Image of Introducing the two-dimensional (2-D) barcode from Sanofi Pasteur

As we strive to make your job easier and more efficient, Sanofi Pasteur is moving towards implementing 2-D barcode technology on our entire product portfolio. Not only were we the first manufacturer in the marketplace to bring this advancement to our customers, but we continue to lead the way with plans to fully implement 2-D barcode technology on our entire product portfolio in the near future. We hope you continue to see this technological advancement as a way to potentially help you record data more accurately.

Image of medical bottle with 2-D barcode Image of Scanning the 2-D barcode is a quick and easy way to get key vaccine information: Image of Systems and reporting tools that could potentially take advantage of 2-D barcodes include:
  • Global Trade Identification Number (GTIN)
  • National Drug Code (NDC)
  • Lot Number
  • Expiration Date
  • Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems
  • Inventory management systems
  • Vaccine registries
  • Vaccine Adverse Event Recording System (VAERS)

Image of barcodeImage of The linear barcode and readable information will remain

The 2-D barcode is not meant to replace the linear barcode. We're adding it to help make your job of recording information easier, and potentially more accurate.

Image of What you'll need to read the 2-D barcode

Reading the new 2-D barcode requires an EMR system, in addition to a compatible 2-D scanning device. For more information and pricing on the required scanners, visit® or speak to your wholesaler and/or distributor.
