testing on barcode


We check every form of code - from barcodes to security codes that can be verified - for readability and counterfeit protection. In addition, we offer an independent examination of OCR texts, taking into account the substrates, and make wavelength-specific problems visible.


Your benefit

With our laboratory equipment and the various verifiers there is no challenge that we cannot handle.

Due to our quality and standards competence you do not have to invest time in extensive standards research and their implementation. We are always up to date and can also make statements for future generations of standards.

We will answer any of your questions in the field of codes and provide you with advice. For us it self-evident: we are trustworthy. You can rely on us!

With us you get support for

  • the improvement of the reading quality,

  • the adaptation to substrates,

  • the failure analysis.

Your contact

I would be pleased to advise and inform you about code and OCR checking.

What you need to do

We make it as easy as possible for you! Send us your materials, codes or printouts without obligation. We will coordinate the further procedure with you by telephone.

For the analysis of faulty codes we need from you

  • both the faulty and new, error-free samples („Good Samples“); at best individual samples of the production stages,

  • a description of the pattern and error as detailed as possible.

  • For an encrypted communication please send us your PGP key.

Please send the samples carefully packed, by express service and according to your safety requirements to:

Fogra Forschungsinstitut für Medientechnologien e.V.
Department Security Applications

Our procedure

After receipt of the order and samples by Fogra, you will receive an order confirmation summarising all details of the test period, contact person and price.

All laboratory tests are performed according to standardised test specifications and our high quality standards. Finally, we regularly undergo audits and have our quality management system recertified. After completion of the audit, we summarise the results in a report. If any deviations from the standards or special features occur during the test, we will contact you immediately and provide you with advice.
