Coding and Vision: Keys to Traceability

In order to complement technological advances, direct part marking and machine vision have continuously evolved to satisfy consumer demands and industry regulations. This article highlights the capabilities and importance of coding, marking and vision and how, as a combined force, they ensure complete product traceability within both traditional manufacturing and, more recently, in the logistics arena.

THE RISE OF TRACEABILITY

As consumer demands continue to spiral upwards, and with a blanket of stringent legislation and regulations covering all areas of manufacturing, the need for a product to be traced from ‘cradle to grave’ has been of paramount importance for some time. This not only appeases the regulators, but delights the end users who would receive their products, supplied as per the agreed requirements.

Before long, the buzzwords of ‘coding’ and ‘traceability’were on everyone’s lips, and the increase in machine vision usage became...

Backward Thinking: The Reverse Engineering of A Pressurized Metered Dose Inhaler

Development of a generic equivalent to a current marketed pressurized metered dose inhaler (pMDI) product brings immense challenges. Thorough analysis is critical to gain a comprehensive understanding of the physical attributes and pharmaceutical performance of the reference marketed product. Many factors need to be assessed, understood and combined in order to successfully develop a generic pMDI which will meet the regulatory and quality requirements as an equivalent product in the anticipated target market. Significant information about the reference marketed product can be obtained from a thorough review of published literature, specifically the Summary of Product Characteristics (SPC) and Patient Information Leaflet (PIL). Additionally, baselining the reference marketed product for pharmaceutical performance offers a working target specification for in-vitro correlation. It will ensure the smoothest possible path to commercialization and maximize return on investment. In addition, baselining of the reference marketed product is done to understand batch-to-batch variability and product performance over the stated shelf life to establish targets for critical quality attributes (CQAs), which can be applied to the generic equivalent pMDI.
