Digital Printing for Pharmaceutical Packaging - A Customer's Perspective

As digital printing becomes a more viable option for packaging, printing vendors are looking to the pharmaceutical industry as a lucrative market. There are several reasons why digital printing is suitable for pharmaceutical packaging:

The option of quick turnaround for printed materials is
especially attractive in an industry which is under increasing
pressure to bring products to launch

Frequent changes to packaging make any options which
reduce the inventory of printed materials very advantageous

Rapid safety changes are often necessary for
pharmaceutical products

While the cost of printed materials is not a major portion
of the cost of the product for large orders of pharmaceutical
products, this is not always true for short run, small volume
products.

Working Towards a Standardised Identification Solution

PCI Pharma Services

The security of the pharmaceutical supply chain is an issue of growing concern, with recent reports addressing its vulnerability to counterfeiting. The complexity of the European supply chain is one of the key factors of this counterfeiting pandemic, with millions of medicine packs being moved around the EU, annually. Aside from this, fragmentation has resulted in decreased transparency in the supply chain and increased difficulties to track and trace medicines, leading to significant threat from counterfeiting. As a key source of income for the European economy, it is essential that the supply chain remains safe and free of counterfeits. A significant stumbling block within the industry remains to be the lack of a unified, single‐source pan‐European or indeed global database where scanned bar codes on drug packaging can be verified at point of dispense.
