HEALTHY SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR SUCCESS
When it comes to medicines and drugs, legible labelling can be vital. The guidelines set by the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standards and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration of the USA) requirements are correspondingly demanding and binding for the pharmaceutical industry.
ON LABELLING IN PHARMACEUTICAL PRODUCTION
Each individual prescription medicine must be identified by a unique individual identifier that ensures traceability through the entire supply chain to the patient and back to the manufacturer. This includes: an individual serial number (serialisation), a unique product code, date of manufacture, production batch and expiry date. This information must also be machine-readable, with appropriate coding, especially data matrix codes, being used.
Each medicine is registered in a national database. When the medicine is dispensed in the pharmacy, a comparison is made in the system and only then is the medicine handed out to the customer and registered as administered in the database. This ensures that the patient receives the correct medicine and not a counterfeit. This also makes possible any recall actions.
This means that pharmaceutical products must be reliably marked in a permanently durable and easily legible manner. The labelling, especially the machine-readable codes, must not be able to be damaged by mechanical abrasion, nor by chemical action, acids, temperature influences, etc.
Laser markings fulfil these requirements perfectly. That is why laser marking systems have long been the means of choice in the pharmaceutical sector.
