Combining serialization, tamper evidence sealing, and process monitoring components into one system, Mettler-Toledo Pharmacontrol Electronic (PCE) unveiled its new XMV-TE system, aimed to help pharmaceutical companies comply with the specifications of the EU Directive 2011/62/EU governing protection against falsification. According to the company, the machine can be integrated into new and existing lines, and it can also be networked with data management systems.
Advances in laser technology could transform the marking and tracking of capsules and tablets. Alex Kerner, president of Tri-Star Technologies, says printing during this phase can be a “last-minute bottleneck when you least want it—right at the end, after time and money have already been committed in the earlier part of the production run.”
The El Segundo, CA–based provider of laser marking systems has developed a complete turnkey system for noninvasively marking capsules and other pharmaceutical products: the Nd:YAG UV Cold Laser System.
