Use your mobile device to scan this 2D barcode and read more about things you can do with 2D barcodes.
There are two main symbologies for barcoding, 1D and 2D barcodes. A 1D barcode encodes only a few dozen characters that correspond with a reference number in a company’s database, and is often limited in its usefulness. A 2D barcode, on the other hand, encodes significantly more so that the information can be stored within the barcode rather than within a database. These 2D barcodes can store up to 4000 alphanumeric characters such as an item’s serial number, lot information and time stamp.
In comparison, a 1D barcode only relates to a single item and obtaining information related to that particular item often requires scanning multiple barcodes whereas 2D barcodes can store all the information so that it can be accessed with a single scan.
