• Pharmaceutical Serialization & Aggregation:
    You’ll Fulfill Every Requirement with our Modular Systems

For consumers to know that a medicine is genuine, products in the pharmaceutical industry need distinctive drug labelling and counterfeit-proof identification features. That’s exactly what Serialization and Aggregation (i.e.Track & Trace) ensures. Pharmacists, for example, can clearly identify the products and can track the transportation of every package end-to-end. This, together with a tamper-evident closure, creates security and confidence.

Because the pharma serialization requirements for differ from country to country, we offer highly flexible Serialization and Aggregation or Track and Trace systems like the Traceable Quality System (TQS): a reliable and future-proof solution for our pharmaceutical customers.

In addition, we successfully integrate OEM components into packaging machines. The standardized interfaces also support perfect Serialization and Aggregation IT integration. As a result they are fully compatible with existing machine and system components.

TQS – That’s What Our World-Leading Pharmaceutical Serialization & Aggregation Systems Do

The Serialization & Aggregation systems of the TQS family offer you serialization, checkweighing, tamper-evident and multi-stage aggregation.

  • Machines are available with optimized product transport for folding boxes, bottles and vials
  • A modular system allows for a wide range of product dimensions
  • Extremely precise coding by our labelling systems even at high throughputs
  • Easy operation: Transport system, coder, camera, checkweigher and labeller are controlled via a common software interface
  • IT integration is facilitated by open and standardized interfaces

Meet country-specific regulations for Pharmaceutical Serialization & Aggregation with TQS

As a result of EU Directive 2011/62/EU, from February 2019 the pharmaceutical industry must not put any more prescription-only drugs on the market unless it is possible to verify their authenticity by serial numbering and tamper-evident sealing. This is used to improve consumer protection in the case of drugs.

It poses a challenge for companies in the pharmaceutical industry because the production environment, serialization and aggregation requirements may vary widely at national level.

We know what’s important in terms of country-specific Serialization and Aggregation pharmaceutical advice and have compiled and analyzed all the crucial information for you on an interactive world map.

Folding Boxes: Serialization, Weight Inspection, Tamper-Evident, Aggregation

Folding boxes are serialized by printing the side surfaces or the top. Weight acquisition to check whether they are complete. And we offer the tamper-evident application for this so that the closure is also tamper-proof.

Aggregation can be built up in several stages through to pallet level. Rejecting defective packages that fail the weight, application and printing test ensures 100% product monitoring.

Bottles and vials: Serialization, helper code printing, 360° all-round inspection, aggregation

Video: Semi-automatic aggregation for bottles – HANA Pharm. CO. LTD Track & Trace project

Bottles or vials are serialized by applying unique labels. This is followed by full-surface print verification using optical inspection. If labels are not readable, they are identified and rejected before being applied.

In addition, a 360° all-round inspection with verification of bottles and vials takes place at the exit of labelling machines. If necessary, a helper code is printed on the base or lid of bottles or vials.

To what extent do you want to serialize?

  • With the TQS-Bottle, you can serialize bottles and vials on a minimal footprint
  • Print pre-serialized products with helper codes for subsequent aggregation
