UDI Cross References at Wright
How to get UDI for devices without UDI labels:
When labels are not present, UDI information can be derived by combining available production-specific identification information on devices with a cross referencing tool.
Listed below are multiple ways to obtain a device’s GTIN from its catalog numbers or descriptions when labels are not present.
Download GTIN Cross Reference Catalog (Spreadsheet) directly below and search by catalog number.
Note: GTINs are Global Trade Item Numbers used throughout Wright’s global supply chain and are not used exclusively for UDI. The Cross Reference Catalog includes active and obsolete products. Products listed may not be available for ordering within all markets.
