Serialization Project Rolled Out Across 20 Sites Worldwide for Multi-National Pharmaceutical Company
Pharmaceutical companies worldwide are introducing product serialisation, partly to meet new regulations but primarily to protect consumers and patients against counterfeit products while improving traceability with supply chains. Serialisation involved adding a unique serial number to the lowest saleable unit prescription medicine and some non-prescription medicines, depending on the market requirements. This serial number can be checked against the manufacturer’s database to ensure the product is genuine. The scheme is being rolled out globally but implementation is being staggered.
The Zenith Serialisation team began by working as a part of the client’s design team to develop an enterprise solution that would deliver serialisation functionality to its entire network. Once the design stage was completed, the team concentrated on the specifics by creating a test lab within one of the client’s facilities to validate the chosen serialisation solutions.
