  • Beyond Item Level Serialization: Extending Traceability Schemes To Secondary And Tertiary Packaging
    Beyond Item Level Serialization: Extending Traceability Schemes To Secondary And Tertiary Packaging

    Falsified and counterfeit medicines are a chronic problem for the pharmaceutical sector, with a third of all shipments in the worst affected parts of the world estimated to contain fake medicines. Highly portable and often extremely valuable, medicines continue to be a favorite with those determined to fake products or subvert the system for illegitimate gain. Faced with this continued global threat, legislatures around the world are responding by tightening the supply chain to stamp out illicit goods.

  • The Hidden Challenges Of Pharmaceutical Serialization
    The Hidden Challenges Of Pharmaceutical Serialization

    The true extent of the counterfeiting is unknown, since no global study has ever been carried out, but according to WHO estimates, up to 15% of all medicines are counterfeit.

  • The EU Falsified Medicines Directive – Concerted Action To Secure The pharmaceutical supply Chain
    The EU Falsified Medicines Directive – Concerted Action To Secure The pharmaceutical supply Chain

    In recent years the production of, and trade in, falsified medicines – both research based and generic – has grown to become a global illegal business. At the borders of the EU alone over 30 million counterfeit medicines have been seized during the last five years, and the statistics regarding medicines supplied online are equally disturbing: according to the European Alliance for Safe Medicines, 62% of medicines purchased online are fake or substandard.

  • Gain Greater Flexibility In Pharma Packaging
    Gain Greater Flexibility In Pharma Packaging

    In numerous pharma compa­nies, the following problem is being posed: shrinking lot sizes are constantly worsening the ratio of packaging system set-up time to running time. By Dr. Ralph Blum, Mediseal GmbH, Schloss Holte

  • Late Stage Customization For Small Lots Of Blister Packaging
    Late Stage Customization For Small Lots Of Blister Packaging

    Two years ago, Elaiapharm undertook the packaging of an important new solid dose product (Cipralex, an antidepressant) to be launched across a large number of international markets. The product itself is an ODT – orally dispersible tablet – formulation packed in child resistant cold form blisters.

  • Autoclavable PP Blisters With Filled Disposable Syringes
    Autoclavable PP Blisters With Filled Disposable Syringes

    At the end of the packaging process, the packaged syringes should meet the requirements for sterile devices in the operating room. Therefore, the finished blisters are autoclaved at 121 °C (2 bar) for 15 minutes. Only minimal deformation of the blisters is tolerated, so that the syringes can be used in the operating room without problems after this thermal treatment.

Pharmaceutical Serialization Coding And Marking Equipment: Drug Quality And Security Act Pharmaceutical Serialization Coding And Marking Equipment: Drug Quality And Security Act

In November of 2013, the Federal government in the United States passed the Drug Quality and Security Act (DQSA) to create a national pharmaceutical serialization and track & trace regulation. This mandates serialized coding on primary and secondary pharmaceutical packaging beginning in 2017, and supersedes all state mandates (including California e-pedigree). Global traceability initiatives, such as the DQSA, are designed to hinder the production and distribution of life-threatening imitation or counterfeit pharmaceuticals. These initiatives can require identification and authenticity features on primary, secondary and tertiary packaging levels typically in the form of unique, non-predictive, serialized and machine readable codes. This level of product identification aims to impair the ability of counterfeiters to successfully replicate pharmaceutical products and packaging.

Continuous Ink Jet Series Printer: Ax550i Continuous Ink Jet Series Printer: Ax550i

This robust and flexible machine delivers high resolution print messages and multiple line codes in even the harshest environments. Its tough and stackable cabinet is made from marine grade stainless steel which is not only dust tight but can withstand powerful water blasting during heavy duty cleaning. It's an innovative printer that, in every sense, truly takes some beating. The highest quality of print is also assured, allowing large amounts of data for high speed, rapid throughput printing. And higher quality codes are optimised for Machine Readable Codes (MRC) and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) systems helping to reduce rejects.
