DataBar is a barcode symbology that was formally adopted by the global supply chain in January 2011. The DataBar can carry all 14 digits of a manufacture’s GTIN and is more than 50% smaller than the currently used UPC and EAN symbols. This makes it particularly useful for identifying small items such as produce and pharmaceutical items. Additionally, the DataBar symbol can carry GS1 Application Identifiers which allow additional information such as serial numbers, lot numbers, and expiration dates to be encoded.
