Serialization and aggregation – how do they function and what is their usage in medical packaging?
The packaging and stickers of pharmaceutical products and medical tools have various relevant purposes – from marketing and information to protection.
The activities of serialization and aggregation of medical packaging are also very important, they must be performed in conformity with strict internal principles and strict conditions of the medical sector.
A pArticularly relevant idea in the production and branding of a medical product is its serialization. This approach identifies the product with original, non-punctuation serial combinations on every packaging. After placing unique codes on singular products, manufacturers have to know where these products are located. Aggregation can be achieved by implementing vision technics in automatic wrappers or packet packing devices or thanks to aggregation methods, for instance by means of dosage conveyors. Packets are one of the most usually employed drug device for pharmaceutical and medical products. Marking of these packaging with good quality codes readable for people and devices is a crucial element of the medical firm’s traceability project. Bottles, which are an exceptionally often employed medical packaging, can be coded in many places. Common and visible in ultraviolet or infrared radiation tags on the bottom of the bottle, on the label or cap – these are only some of the probable solutions. Marking vials is a difficult job as to the small size of the packaging.
The best tagging outcome can be acquired if the printer is compatible with packaging devices designed specifically to handle items of this precise form.
