Date code / lot number is the number to identify when the component is being manufactured. It is for the factories production quality control and tracing purposes.
What is lot date?
All the items in a lot usually have the same production date, production issue, packaging date, or expiration date. A lot number can be created based on a specific date and time. For example, lot numbers can indicate a purchase order time, shipping time, or time of receipt.
Is Mfg date the same as expiration date?
With proper storage, the product will remain fully potent until this date. The Manufacturing date (mfg) printed on the label is the date the product was produced in compliance with Good Manufacturing (GMP) regulations. It is not an expiration date, but is a date we recommend for use.
