In a recent article by PharmPro, Optel Vision's Product Manager for Serialization, Jean-Pierre Allard was interviewed in regards to the future of serialization for the pharmaceuticals industry. Optel Vision is ready to face the challenge providing all of the necessary hardware, software and integration skills needed to enable serialization, from the packaging up to the warehouse.
"Pharmaceutical packagers are refocusing attention on serialization as they strive to meet California’s 2015 ePedigree deadline, and exhibitors at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2011 (September 26-28; Las Vegas Convention Center) (www.packexpo.com) are ready.
PACK EXPO exhibitors will display hardware, software and integration solutions necessary to support track-and-trace capabilities.
Interest in adding serialized (unique) codes to pharmaceutical packages — and collecting related data — is on the rise.
Driving forces include California’s deferred ePedigree deadline in 2015, serialization requirements elsewhere in the world and the desire for another tool to authenticate product."
