Millions of pharmaceutical products have been affected by recalls this year. Reasons have included the presence of particulates in a syringe, packaging the wrong product (such as a tablet containing the wrong dosage); out-of-spec products, and contamination by a foreign substance. Although many of these issues were caught at the wholesale level, others weren’t—and some had the potential to cause life-threatening issues for end-users or consumers.
A new system launched in Brazil at FCE Pharma is designed to offer a stand-alone solution to support different approaches to pharmaceutical product serialization. VisioCIT can handle either labeling or direct coding, reports Christoph Lehmann, director of Uhlmann VisioTec GmbH (www.visiotecamerica.com), which can position companies to meet Brazil’s pending rules as well as others around the world.
