Description: Medi-Dose Information Labeling Technology (MILT) provides capabilities for the design, printing, and reporting of labels and the packaging of unit dose medications. MILT supports all standard types of bar codes. The technology allows users to customize labels with information such as National Drug Codes (NDC), lot numbers, beyond-use dates, hospital codes, wholesaler numbers, and identification codes. Each label printed is recorded in an electronic log that creates a report to manage packaged labels.

This technology does not utilize a database, as files generated by this technology are saved to the user`s local drive and may be shared with other users over a local network.

For printing purposes, MILT is compatible with both standard laser printers and Zebra thermal printers, including the Zebra LP-2844/GK420d/GC420d Direct Thermal Printer.
