Ensuring patient safety through technology

You’ve invested time, money and energy into quality assurance while doing your best to keep costs low and productivity high. But is your quality system doing its best for you?

Manual packaging and handling procedures, outdated data-management systems and the constant risk of human error can too easily compromise the quality and integrity of medical devices, putting patient health and safety at risk.

As the industry moves toward more stringently controlled, connected medical devices, OPTEL’s innovative, turnkey vision inspection and digital traceability solutions can help get you there―with minimal disruption to precious productivity time.

Quality assurance and false rejects

On average, one company per year sees a 10 percent drop in share price after a single, major quality event, and the risk of long-term reputational damage is real.*

Machine Vision - Icon: Reduce Recalls

Recall reduction and management

Non-routine quality events such as recalls cost the industry an average of up to $5 billion per year, yet many manufacturers still rely on monolithic systems that actually slow their ability to track and manage recalls.*

Tracking devices up to the patient

In the event of a recall, tracking medical devices up to the patient is critical, yet some manufacturers don’t even have a warehouse management system (WMS) in place to tell them where their product is in the supply chain.**

Machine Vision - Icon: Comply to regulations


In the wake of media reports about medical device recalls, defects and government oversight, many regulatory bodies are now drafting or enacting tougher controls over medical devices. Failure to comply is not an option.

Product and direct marking inspection

Verify direct-marked or embossed codes, and inspect product integrity and characteristics such as dimensions, shape and color.

Machine Vision - Thumbnail: Packaging and Seal Integrity Inspection

Packaging and seal inspection

Inspect the integrity of packaging and seals by detecting contaminants for better quality control.

Kit and tray inspection

In addition to detecting component presence, our systems use metrology to detect millimetric differences in the general attributes of the devices contained in kits and trays.

Labeling and printing inspection

Inspect printing on packaging materials, including flexible web, Tyvek, paper, foil, pouches and more. Detect label presence and characteristics, artwork and variable data, barcodes and grading to comply with UDI regulations.

Visibility along the supply chain

Medical device companies often collect and consume data as static documents, but data becomes valuable only when it is transformed into intelligence that can be leveraged to drive improved quality and streamline processes.**
