Within the pharmaceutical industry, stringent legislation exists to combat counterfeit goods by ensuring each product can be traced throughout the supply chain. In order to achieve the required levels of traceability, manufacturers are increasingly reliant on printed 2-D codes combined with advanced code reading technology.

As a major international integrator of Item Level Serialization and Tracking Solutions, Advanco works together with some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical manufacturers installing Automatic Identification (Auto-ID) throughout the complete supply chain to ensure product traceability.

As fulfilment of the second phase regulation of the Drug Tracking System and the ackaging Tracking System as defined by the Ministry of Health of Turkey, Advanco recently installed a complete traceability solution for one of its key global manufacturers.
