Flexible Track & Trace at contract manufacturer Artesan Pharma
Up to now, Artesan has made a name for itself mainly manufacturing solid dosage forms for specific orders. In addition it produces other small to medium sized batches of more demanding formulations. The company is now offering its clients innovative serialization solutions in accordance with the securPharm initiative. The Datamatrix Station XMV from METTLER TOLEDO PCE supports Artesan with Track & Trace and serialization tasks.
At Artesan Pharma GmbH & Co. KG, the XMV is located on the production line between the cartoner and checkweigher. The Track & Trace solution marks packaging for purely prescription medicines, in line with the securPharm requirement, with a datamatrix code and a serial number in plain text. The individual pack number in the datamatrix code is stored in a central database and can be verified at a later date in the pharmacy, right before the sale. From now on, each and every pack of painkillers can always be clearly identified.
