Labeling, Coding, and Marking for Pharmaceuticals, Nutraceuticals, and Medical Devices
The Healthcare Industry is heavily mandated to identify and code products and packaging systems. Manufacturers are required to code directly on an item (glass, bottles, jars, slides, syringes, blister packing, UDI, serialization, or other items), their packaging, or both. The specifics of the code are often driven by FDA requirements or other industry regulations.
Most common applications include a lot code and a best before date. Recent trends toward anti-counterfeiting add another level of complexity to coding requirements such as serialization, use of UV inks, and covert coding. Common challenges include:
- Handle a wide variety of packaging sizes, shapes, and substrates, all while keeping high speed production lines moving.
- Seamless integration of labeling, and coding systems with other production equipment.
- Traceability of products to enable immediate response should a recall be initiated.
- Ensure correct Serialization, UDI, and product security codes on multiple levels of packaging.
- Coding on labels and various locations.
