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.
