Track and Trace Benefits Pharma Packaging Printers

Christian Puech at Packart discusses how a new tracking and tracing system is helping companies with a need for high-security, high-technology printing to maximise their anti-counterfeiting operations, and ensure safe tracking throughout the pharmaceutical supply chain

Maintaining digital document security through file authentication, file integrity and traceability is a significant challenge for those involved in the pharmaceutical print and packaging sector. Who the owner is, whether it is the original file, genuine, and in the right place are all questions to be considered. Through digital marking, security features can now be painlessly transferred to the ‘analogue’ world using a range of marking and printing technologies. At the same time, the information contained within these markings can remain invisible to the human eye.

There are two key areas that require end-to-end solutions in the pharmaceutical packaging sector:

  • Authentication, which entails fighting counterfeiting by ensuring the clear validation of products, containers, packaging and product components
  • Tracking and tracing, which manages sales channels by using secure unit traceability by batch, or unique identification by article, in order to trace products anywhere, or at any time, within the supply chain

Bio/Pharmaceutical Methods: Do your Analytical Methods Hold Up to Regulatory Scrutiny?

Eurofins BioPharma Product Testing

As FDA guidelines evolve and drug products on the market begin to age, bio/pharmaceutical manufacturers face scrutiny of the original methods used to support these products. Therefore, manufacturers must re-evaluate these methods to ensure they comply with current FDA expectations. Some manufacturers are even facing consent decrees imposed by the agency requiring them to bring methods up to current standards within a specified timeframe. This exercise requires significant amounts of time and resources, which many manufacturers do not have since they are focused on getting their next products to market. For that reason, some clients have been turning to Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories for support.
