The BEC 300, manufactured by Uhlmann, is the eighth and newest blister line at Ropack Pharma Solutions. The single-lane unit integrates blistering, cartoning and serialization. The highly efficient BEC 300, which produces cold formed (alu/alu) and Aclar® blisters at high speeds, will be serialization-ready by May 2017, well ahead of the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) mandate of November 2017.
The expansion of RPS’s blister lines to include the BEC 300 is a response to the continued increase in demand for blister, a preferred packaging format when the need for security, stability and sustained efficacy is significant. Also, the Uhlmann’s serialization capability aligns with RPS’s commitment to satisfy the DSCSA serialization deadline.
