Schreiner MediPharm presents digital and analog pharma-security solutions
The countdown is on: On February 9, 2019, EU Directive 2011/62/EU will come into effect. It aims to stop illegal trade in falsified medicines. From then onwards, pharmaceutical manufacturers have to provide secondary packaging of all medicines placed on the market with an individual serial number as well as an anti-tampering device to ensure the integrity of the medicinal packaging: a challenge that should not be underestimated and demands customized and efficient solutions.
At Pharmapack in Paris on February 7 and 8, 2018, Schreiner MediPharm will present its extensive portfolio of innovative analog and digital security solutions for reliable counterfeiting and tampering protection in Hall 7.1, Booth J48. The highlight of the product lineup will be the BitSecure copy detection pattern which enables easy, digital authentication of pharmaceutical packaging using a smartphone app.
BitSecure copy detection pattern by the Competence Center Schreiner ProSecure is a printed digital security feature based on a high-resolution, cloud-like random pattern. In an attempt to copy the BitSecure pattern, which has a size of only a few square millimeters, the printed image will suffer a loss in precision and optical details. These differences can be reliably detected by means of a smartphone app or a handheld reader.
At Pharmapack 2018, Schreiner MediPharm will present a new app for BitSecure authentication with selected smartphones as well as the latest generation of handheld readers. As a result, authentication can then be performed easier and more reliably. Improvements include user-friendliness and an enhanced app back-end: The user interface of the app is intuitive and the analysis algorithms have systematically been further developed. The back-end data management system is integrated into a powerful and future-proof development environment.
Reliable product and brand protection in the pharmaceutical supply chain can only be successfully achieved by combining analog and digital security features. Schreiner MediPharm will be showcasing its extensive portfolio of products for tampering and counterfeiting protection: from diverse closure seal solutions for clear, irreversible first-opening indication through to a wide range of integrated overt, covert and digital anti-counterfeiting features enabling reliable authentication by laypersons and experts.
