Surgical instruments

RFID technology in the hospital

RFID refers to a technology for receiving and sending data without contact.
An RFID system consists of a transponder, a reader that can identify the transponder using electromagnetic waves, and the software for digital management.

RFID technology is suitable for mass reading of entire instrument trays and the application of an RFID tag does not result in any change to the surgical instrument. The major advantages over other technologies such as datamatrix or barcode are the high security of the system and the good readability of the transponder.

RFID service station

The reprocessing of medical devices has a major impact on healthcare costs. RFID technology enables hospitals to continuously track surgical instruments without contact, reducing costs and thus increasing efficiency over the entire life cycle of an instrument.
