Coding and traceability news in brief

News clippingsFeaturing updates from Domino Printing Sciences/Omron, QAD Inc, Videojet and contract packager Reed-Lane.

Coding and marking specialist Domino Printing Sciences has forged an alliance with vision and industrial automation company Omron, which will now join Domino's partner programme to help manufacturers implement coding and marking projects. The alliance is focusing initially on the pharmaceutical sector, and specifically the implementation of serialization projects to meet regulatory requirements such as the product security provisions within the EU Falsified Medicines Directive, which come onto effect in 2018.

Enterprise software specialist QAD Inc says it has launched a serialization platform designed to help pharmaceutical companies meet the impending requirements of the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) for lot and unit-level product tracking and a national track-and-trace system for medicines. The company - whose cloud-based enterprise-resource planning (ERP) software is used in more than 400 manufacturing facilities operated by life science companies - says its offering "simplifies regulatory compliance, manages serialized product and supports chain of custody tracking."

Videojet has introduced a new laser marking system for high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and synthetic fibre materials - called the 7810 Ultraviolet laser - which it says is particularly suited for product traceability applications in the pharmaceutical ,medical  and cosmetics sectors, including on blister packs. The codes printed using the device are resistant to abrasives, chemicals and sterilisation processes, and can be applied at full production speeds of up to 250 products per minute.

Reed-Lane, a US contract packager serving the pharmaceutical industry, has implemented a dedicated serialization suite at its Wayne, New Jersey facility that will allow the company to provide track-and-trace services down to the unit level. The suite features a state-of-the-art Optel Vision TrackSafe system, according to the company.
