Is Your Primary Device Count Greater Than One?
Assign the "Unit of Use" Packaging Level

In 2022, GS1 US Data Hub added an optional “Unit of Use” packaging level. The Unit of Use DI is defined as an identifier assigned to an individual medical device when the Primary DI has a "count of devices" greater than 1.

The Unit of Use DI is assigned to the single device below the lowest saleable unit marked with a DI. This allows for unique identification of the actual device used in patient care.

This option conserves the GS1 Company Prefix GTIN capacity, and also enables you to associate the “Unit of Use DI” as part of the Primary Device DI Product Hierarchy:
