GS1 Barcode Standard
The GS1-128 barcode is a universal barcode application standard of the Code 128 barcode format created by GS1 the international standards authority for barcodes. It is a one-dimensional font of vertical bars which encodes both letters and numbers. This capability makes it very useful for encoding complex information. It is widely used in manufacturing and logistics.
A GS1-128 barcode can contain a Serial Shipment Container Code (SSCC) used to identify a logistic unit, or item information including company code, product code, lot/batch number, serial number, expiry date, quantity, weight, and more. Any combination of these data points may be used by a company in a single barcode. How these items of data are arranged in the barcode is controlled by the GS1 specification.

QR code (Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode, or two-dimensional barcode. Information can be encoded by a variety of methods and different types of encoding can be used in the same QR code. Every QR code consists of a number of black squares and dots which represent certain pieces of information.
QR Codes became popular due to its fast readability and greater storage capacity compared to standard UPC barcodes. Applications include product tracking, item identification, time tracking, asset tracking, document management and general marketing.
