HIBC LIC 39 Barcode

This Symbology is also known as HIBCC LIC, HIBC Labeler Identification Code, HIBC Supplier Labeling Standard Barcode, HIBC SLS Barcode, HIBC LIC Primary Data Structure, HIBC LIC Secondary Data Structure, HIBC Code 39, HIBC PCN Barcode, HIBC Universal Product Number, HIBC UPN Barcode, Health Industry Bar Code, Health Industry Business Communications Council Barcode

The HIBC LIC is used by Labelers (manufacturers) of health care products for identification purpose. Labelers can encode which is called "Primary Data" and "Secondary Data". In short, Primary Data identifies the labeler, the product code, and the unit of measure while Secondary Data is useful to distributors and providers and, at the discretion of the labeler, should be added. The Secondary Data is optional and is used in conjunction with Primary Data elements to encode quantity and/or expiration (expiry) date and/or Lot/Batch/Serial Number.

The HIBC LIC Primary and Secondary Data Structures are represented by a variant of Code 39 barcode.

Combining Primary and Secondary Codes in One Symbol
Labelers can encode in one only symbol both the Primary and Secondary Data by using the HIBC LIC Concatenation Format. In this case, a slash (/) is used as a delimiter between the Primary and Secondary Data. In addition, the Primary Data Link Character, the plus (+) at the start of the Secondary Data, and the Secondary Data Link Character are omitted. Only one Checksum at the end of the symbol is used which will verify the entire symbol.

How to create HIBC LIC 39 barcodes using Barcode Professional

Note: Please refer to the Class Reference documentation for more information about the properties and methods stated in this document.
In order to get a HIBC LIC 39 barcode image, please follow these steps:
How to encode Primary Data
You can encode Primary Data Structure by just passing to Barcode Professional the Universal Product Number (UPN). UPN is composed of LIC + PCN + UM.
Example of encoding Primary Data
How to encode Secondary Data
Barcode Professional provides an easy data format for encoding Secondary Data Structure. The Secondary Data fields Quantity, Date, and Lot/Batch/Serial Number are separated by # (Cross hatch or number sign) and you can optionally instruct to Barcode Professional for computing the "Link Character" by placing the "Primary Data" between parentheses at the end of the value to encode as is shown below.
Example of encoding Secondary Data
How to encode Primary and Secondary Data in One Symbol
For encoding Primary and Secondary Data in one symbol, the following format must be used:
The / (slash) character is used as separator between both data structures and UPN, QUANTITY, DATE, and LOT_BATCH_SERIAL_NUM have the aforementioned meanings.
