Patient Tracing System

6. Documentation System

6.1 Hand labelling devices

The gke Steri-Record® documentation system is used for batch and patient related traceability after sterilization of medical devices.
By using a gke labelling device a label of the same content including production and expiry date, batch number and responsible person is adhered on each pack and on the documentation sheet. After opening the sterile pack in the operation room the label can be removed from the package and adhered into the patient file. Thus all information provided on each pack can be traced back from the patient to the processing and approval.
The labels are available in different colours, optionally with or without indicator.

gke offers two versions of hand labelling devices:

Art.-No. Product Code 1. Printing line 2. + 3. Printing line
240-820 D-G-NL 3 alpha-numeric and 9 numeric digits 12 numeric digits
240-830 D-G-AL 12 alpha-numeric digits
240-892 Ink roll for all gke hand labelling devices

The following example shows a printed label by using a hand labelling device:

6.2 Double self-adhesive 3-line labels with advanced adhesion properties

The labels consist of a 3 layer material and can be directly adhered on packages or on other labels, e.g. container labels. Before the pack is opened in the operation theatre the double self-adhesive label can be taken off and ad-hered onto the patient documentation sheet. All indicators are tested according to EN ISO 11140-1 type 1 and come with a conformity declaration.
The labels are available in four different colours without (6.2.1) or with (6.2.2) process indicator for steam sterilization processes. The labels are also available with process indicator for ethylene oxide, formaldehyde/dry heat and hydro-gen peroxide sterilization processes. Each pack contains 2, 4 or 12 rolls with 750 labels and an ink roll for the hand labelling device.
