Staff members at hospitals, medical facilities and imaging centers have the ability to access details on each radiation protection apparel product in their inventory direct from their smart phone, tablet, or computer. Unlike similar systems that require external software or specialized RFID tags, the SmartID system uses QR code scanning technology employed by smart phones and other mobile devices. Each item in inventory is assigned a unique QR code; scanning this QR code directs the user to a web-based database record for that item. From this record, users can easily find product details, view a virtual image of the product and access complete inspection reports for the product—all in the same database record and all without the use of special software.

Labels are provided to you at NO CHARGE. Your Bar-Ray representative will assist in tagging existing items, entering data, and will train designated staff members to do so. A small, highly flexible label is applied in a locati on so as not to come in contact with the wearer’s skin. The specially manufactured adhesive is bonded with the surface of the product after a 48 hour “curing” time. All available information is manually entered for each item, however if your facility currently uses an Excel spreadsheet for tracking, we may be able to upload the file to your online inventory.

If you do not have access to a smartphone, tablet, or other mobile device, you can also activate your product by typing into the web browser on your computer the address at the bottom of each tag.
