What is the timeline for the change to the impacted products? When will customers need to have the capability to read the new bar codes?


Beckman Coulter began adding 2D GS1 Data Matrix bar codes to product packages in 2015. After September 24, 2016, some products will have only 2D GS1 Data Matrix bar codes. Customers needing to read the bar codes of these products must have the capability to do so on or before September 24, 2016.
