Lot Number Tracking
There are several ares of the bio tech industry that lot number tracking is beneficial, and sometimes required by governing bodies:
1. Medical Equipment Serial Tracking – Within any particular office, there may be hundreds of different pieces of equipment. With lot number tracking, it makes it easy to find the warranties and other pertinent information about that equipment.
2. In the manufacturing space, it is important to know exactly where the components come from that comprise each finished good. Lot number tracking aids in accessing information such as where that component was manufactured, what finished product it went into, and who the end consumer was. If there is ever a back order on any component, it can be easily tracked to the final end user.
