Track & Trace
Implement serialized packaging in support of full traceability and authentication requirements
Tracking : Is the process of monitoring products, by means of a secure marker (Cognex Camera), as they make their way to the consumer. In this way, a time and location history is built for each product.
Tracing : Is the concept of being able to intercept and authenticate products and trace their route back to the manufacturer. In this way, the time and location history of a specific product is retrieved.
Serialization : Is the unique identification of a medical product to avoid drug counterfeiting via printing a unique serialization number on packaging units e.g. 2D barcode, RFID tag.
A unique serial number, an expiration date, a batch number, a global trade item number (GTIN) and a 2D data matrix code are printed on the product
Facing increased regulations in the coming years to fight counterfeiting and improve patient safety, major pharmaceutical manufacturers have put traceability at the top of their agenda. Today, all manufacturers uniquely code each lot or batch to identify time and location of production and make recalls more efficient and less costly. But this is not sufficient to meet the increased regulations of the future that will require full traceability to comply with product serialization and authentication requirements.
A Track and Trace system is a mass serialization solution for pharmaceutical and food companies that prints a unique identifying code onto each product before or after it has been packaged in order to print, verify, & track the product all over its way until reaching the end consumer.
